Reception[edit]

On Rotten Tomatoes, the series has an approval rating of 78% based on nine reviews and an average rating of 6.4/10.[4]

Brian Lowry of CNN stated that the show "has a slapdash feel from beginning to end, and finds the younger contingent, especially, to be poor narrators of what transpired."[5]

Polly Conway of Common Sense Media rated the series three out of five stars, calling it "a compelling watch."[6] Kayla Cobb of Decider described the series as "a somewhat concise guide to the murder charges around Alex Murdaugh", but noted that "there are better options out there."[7]
