‘Unbelievable’ reviews: Toni Collette and Merritt Wever could win Emmys again for timely Netflix limited series

  • Gold Derby
The 2019 Emmys aren’t over yet, but the 2020 race has already begun. The eligibility period for next year’s awards has been underway since June, and Friday’s premiere of the Netflix limited series “Unbelievable” adds another major contender to the list with its timely story, starry cast and impressive pedigree behind the camera.

Based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning article and an episode of the “This American Life” podcast, the series follows a pair of detectives (Toni Collette and Merritt Wever) as they investigate the rape of a teenager (Kaitlyn Dever), whose report of her assault was doubted by law enforcement. As of this writing, it has a Metacritic score of 81 based on 13 reviews counted thus far — 11 of them positive, two of them mixed. On Rotten Tomatoes, it’s rated 92 percent fresh based on 25 reviews, only two of which are negative.
