Tv Season Info

In the first series of this mystery, a teenager named Danny (Avan Jogia) returns to his hometown after serving time in a juvenile-detention center for murder. He tries to reconnect with his old best friends, Lacey (Kylie Bunbury) and Jo (Maddie Hasson), who have grown apart since he left town. Soon, a classmate gets murdered, and Danny becomes the prime suspect. Danny is determined to clear his name, which isn't easy—some townspeople don't even want him to attend the annual autumn festival. He tries to fit in by joining the football team and throwing a party, but one woman wants him expelled from school, and the murder investigation gets increasingly complicated.

Critic Reviews for Twisted: Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

"Twisted" is already percolating with high-school-style drama when, oops, someone turns up dead. Nothing like a still-warm corpse to put the stress of a science quiz into perspective.

Thin, flavorless high school gruel, but the lead bad boy is intriguing.

Top Critic

Twisted seems likely to stick to superficial characterization and the conventional view of teenage life as a cold war between the popular and the unpopular.

Twisted likely will quickly achieve fave rave status.

Twisted has the potential to snare fans of teen-centric thrillers like Pretty Little Liars. But dialogue that's average at best -- coupled with a few far-from-gripping performances...make this moody mystery so-so rather than stellar.

January 24, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It has a phenomenal -- honestly, phenomenal cast. Great production values...Unfortunately the writers' room is determined to kill all suspense, which is strange considering suspense is possibly the most crucial element in a weekly mystery-thriller.
