The Devil’s Hour drops at the end of the week, but do you need to wait for the kids to be in bed to watch it? What is The Devil’s Hour age rating?

The time has come to see Peter Capaldi in something a little darker than his Doctor Who days. He plays Gideon, a man who is arrested but has a much darker and deeper secret. Somehow, he’s connected to Lucy, a woman who keeps waking up at 3:33 a.m., aka “The Devil’s Hour.”

With the show dropping at the end of the week in full, you’ll want to get into the episodes as soon as possible. Can you do that with the kids around, or is it best waiting for them to go to bed? Let’s take a look at The Devil’s Hour age rating to get an official idea.

The Devil’s Hour age rating

This is not a series suitable for children. It has a TV-MA age rating in the United States and an 18+ age rating in Canada. This suggests a lot of material that is going to leave younger audiences with nightmares and fears.

This isn’t all too surprising considering those behind the series. It’s from the same minds who brought Sherlock and Dracula, two shows that are for the more mature audiences.

The Devil’s Hour brings crime, gore, and a supernatural element that needs to be figured out throughout the six episodes. It’s not going to be a fun ride for children who get scared easily.

Of course, it’s completely up to you when it comes to what you children watch at home. While we have The Devil’s Hour age rating, you’ll know your children best. A 16-year-old may find this series interesting, and only you can say yes or no in the comfort of your own home. I’d suggest watching the first episode at least yourself, and then you can make a decision for your own children.
