A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Family, relationship dysfunction, social media, and cult behavior are themes. Message that what appears to be perfect on social media isn't all that it seems to be.
Positive Role Models
Each influencer has personal troubles, despite how they appear on social media. Astrid and Erick are manipulative and violent, as are many of the community members. Zoa's sister and other folks try to help.
The influencers are young, good looking; some are of mixed race. Cast members represent LGBTQ+ community as well.

Violence & Scariness
People are shown being attacked, stabbed, nearly drowned, being shot at; moments of death are not shown. Bruises and bloody wounds are visible, and people sometimes scream out of fear or despair. Nail guns and other weapons are used. A dead body is shown in one episode; references are made to others who have disappeared and presumably been killed.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Welcome to Eden is a Spanish thriller series (available dubbed in English) that features mature themes, violence (blood is often visible), and strong sexual content (including a bare bottom). Kidnapping and death are also major themes. While the Spanish-language version has plenty of swearing, the English translations feature milder language. There's lots of drinking, and a drug-addicted parent is featured. Apple products are occasionally visible, and Twitter is briefly referenced. Younger teens may be drawn to it, but it's intended for older viewers.
Is It Any Good?
The suspense-filled Spanish thriller (available dubbed in English and subtitled) reminds us that what may seem perfect on social media is often a facade being used to hide darker truths. Thanks to good writing and a well-paced narrative, it successfully offers this lesson by combining science fiction, relationship drama, and contemporary influencer culture. But Welcome to Eden's real entertainment value comes from the many nail-biting moments when characters strategize and take frightening risks to escape their fate. If you're looking for a bingeable series that is both engaging and sinister, you will certainly find it here.
