The 13-part mythological drama series Olympus takes viewers into the action-packed world of humans, Gods and monsters. Starring Matt Frewer (Max Headroom, Orphan Black), Sonita Henry (Star Trek, The Fifth Element), Cas Anvar (Argo, The Expanse) and Graham Shiels (Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor: Dark World), the gripping series captures the dangerous courage of a few brave men and women who banished the Gods to the realm of the unconscious - a place they called the Underworld or the Kingdom of Hades.

Olympus is high-camp soap opera performed in a virtual void--which doesn’t make it good, exactly, but at least results in some wonderfully, terribly compelling amateur theater.... Hard to say if this series would please the gods, but it certainly caters to trash-loving mortals.The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
There are occasional bursts of inspiration but the whole is far from divine. [3 Apr 2015, p.58]Entertainment Weekly Full Review
The whole production is airless and stagy; the sound design is so bad, you can hear the actors’ voices echoing off the sound stage walls. Olympus evokes the unreality of a high school play, but it isn’t going for campy laughs like the Sharknado movies.The A.V. Club Full Review
