One Of Us Is Lying: Reviews and Reactions

The 8 episode series has bagged quiet positive reviews from the critics.

“For all the splashy intrigue suggested by that premise, One of Us Is Lying‘s secret weapon is a more subtle one. Showrunner Darío Madrona (Elite) has a confident grasp on the murder mystery’s pacing, doling out twists and clues at a steady enough clip to keep a viewer’s attention from ever wandering too far — but slowly enough that each new reveal has time to sink in.”  Writes The Hollywood Reporter

Further, Forbes reports, “It’s easy to cruise through episode after episode—the show deftly weaves storylines, introduces new questions as fast as it answers old ones, and showcases an appealing cast.”

FilmyHype also tweeted saying it is a fun to watch teen drama.

Notably, One Of Us Is Lying on Netflix got 89% by the Tomatoers and 6.9/10 on IMDb
