Industry: Season 1 / Reviews

Hollywood Reporter

Hollywood Reporter

Maybe if the creators are able to give the context some real meaning, Industry will evolve beyond tawdry, infectious fun into something more HBO-appropriate, as opposed to "Too spicy for Freeform, not spicy enough for Starz." The upside feels like a YA version of Succession.

Rolling Stone

It’s not so much Succession (or even Showtime’s Billions) as it is a more high-toned and raunchy Grey’s Anatomy. ... Maybe Industry isn’t a world killer, but it’s fun enough to be worth seeing now.

Sometimes it’s very funny, but at other times it’s plain cruel. Underneath the spiky and unfamiliar exterior, though, is a beguilingly original series that ought to mark the launch of several major careers, not least those of its creators, barely into their thirties, for whom this is a precocious debut.
