The mystery-horror series is rated TV-MA, meaning it’s intended to be viewed by mature audiences only. It was given this age rating for strong language, sexual violence, and smoking. The show will also contain graphic violence, the use of various weapons, blood, and the brutal murders of characters.
All of the content just listed would be considered inappropriate for younger kids to be watching. Overall, this show may not be suitable for ages 17 and under. We recommend watching it when the kids are tucked in and ready for bed. I promise that once you start this series, you will not want to be interrupted.
