What is The Wilds age rating?

The Wilds is the latest Amazon Original Series to drop. It’s a coming-of-age drama that you may want to watch with your children. Is it suitable for them? What is The Wilds age rating?

The series is about a bunch of teenage girls. They are a mixture of 16- and 17-year-olds, and while it does involve a plane crash (of sorts), this isn’t just a LOST reboot with teens. It’s LOST meets Lord of the Flies meets The Society.

So, it’s time to decide whether it’s something you’re going to watch with your children around. Is it suitable?

The Wilds age rating explained

The show is classed as TV-14 in the United States, according to IMDb. It’s 16+ in the UK, MA15+ in Australia, and other countries have also set their own ratings.

The Wilds age rating means that it is suitable for 14+. However, it is going to be up to the parents to decide. You’ll know if your children are old enough for the content.

Why is the age rating set as it is? It’s mostly linked to the topics within the show. Remember that these are 16- and 17-year-old girls, and they all come from different walks of life. They drink, they smoke, they lash out in anger, they swear, and they even eat edibles.

These topics bump up the age rating. The trailer has a good look at the sort of things you can expect.

There isn’t a lot of nudity, though. The violence and gore is also on the moderate/mild side. There are some fights between the girls, but they’re nothing as graphic as you’d see on the likes of The Boys.

In the end, it’s going to depend on your kids. However, if your children are old enough to do many of the things the teen girls do on the show, this is a series that is going to be mostly suitable for them.
