It’s hard to imagine a more despairing portrait of humanity’s continuing capacity to ruin itself than this account of a disaster that’s three decades old.

The Guardian

When the toxic dust settles on this show, director Johan Renck and screenwriter Craig Mazin will be remembered for crafting a remarkably cogent and multivalent drama.


This is the trick of Chernobyl, one of my favorite TV shows of the year so far and a surprise hit for both HBO and Sky.


Rather than bursting into shocking twists, writer Craig Mazin and director Johan Renck build a steadily creeping unease, allowing the scale of the atrocity to sink in with terrible, fitting gravity.!


Chernobyl turned into a television event almost overnight... we might, quite simply, have the greatest TV drama of this decade.


'Chernobyl' is scarier than most horror movies in that it is a dramatization of actual, real-life horror experienced by thousands of people on that fateful April 1986 morning and the years that followed.

Rotten Tomatoes

Chernobyl rivets with a creeping dread that never dissipates, dramatizing a national tragedy with sterling craft and an intelligent dissection of institutional rot.


I am shocked at the level of production of this show, it is very good, no one outside of Ukraine has ever made a good tv series about Chernobyl before.
