Critic Reviews for Year of the Rabbit: Season 1

All Critics (18)

The best material subverts the crime and costume-drama genres and all of their clichés, like "Ripper Street" gone off its rocker. The pace is fast, and the language is gleefully profane.

The show's best energy and ability to subvert expectations of a show set in this time and place is evident right from the pilot.

Year of the Rabbit thrives in its beautiful blending of cinematography, music, and a tight script that all come together to create an experience that you do not want to miss.

The Year of The Rabbit is not to be missed.

Bold and bawdy and perfectly ridiculous.

June 23, 2020 | Full Review…

Berry's energy is positively infectious. But Wokoma's characterization lights up the screen in a series featuring so many distinctive performances.
