I binged the whole season in 1 day. I love how this continues the story from the American Satan movie. Andy & Ben are phenomenal in it. A must see.

I binged this in one night (and I am an adult with a job)
I have waited, what, three years for this show to finally make its debut? The long wait was 100 percent worth it.

I'm normally not a binge-watcher, but I could NOT stop watching Paradise City. The plot twists and turns are too addictive.

It does help to have seen the 2017 film "American Satan." However, viewers who are new to the world of The Relentless shouldn't have trouble picking up what's going on.

Yes, there is some re-casting. I didn't know who Bella Thorne was (what? I'm a bit older than series creator/producer/writer/director Ash Avildsen), but she absolutely kills it as Lily.

Yes, Andy Biersack's wife Juliet Simms (aka Sumerian artist Lilith Czar) has a supporting role. And she delivers an understated, but compelling, performance. Perhaps we've all underestimated her.

Paradise City also showcases Cameron Boyce's final performance (he tragically passed away in 2019, after filming wrapped). What a talented young man and what a terrible loss.

Look for Kellin Quinn as a hapless intern, Avildsen himself as a deeply disturbing producer, and was that Renee Phoenix on the screen for a few minutes? (Update: yes, it was.)

Some of you may think Paradise City is unrealistic. It's really not. I have a good friend whose family is in the music industry and she'll tell you - yes, this insanity does in fact happen.

Watch "Paradise City". (Watch "American Satan" first.) It's a wild ride - with an outstanding soundtrack.

A saving grace for fans, a damning sequel for characters.
Verified purchase
This is the best show I’ve seen in ages. So many tv shows are fan service and a can never capture the gritty reality that Paradise City just envelopes. It’s showcasing of ALL of the life of a rock star is phenomenal, not just grazing over the psychological toll that fame and success can bring and the pure temptations and consequences of that said lifestyle. American Satan had been my favorite movie for a few years, and to produce a sequel showing that aftermath and emotions so raw and dynamic with other points of view is an absolute win. They gave us others to root for and more to damn. Everyone has a saving grace, but will they actually accept theirs? Can’t wait for a season 2.
