Summary

As reality series go, it’s easy to roll our eyes at the Kardashian format, however, there’s something sweet about Country Ever After and the Anderson family.

Netflix reality series Country Ever After season 1 was released on the streaming service on November 6, 2020.


Reality TV is evidence that Netflix has a wide-open accessible market for titles that cannot make it into other spaces. The streaming service sees it as low risk and it attracts daytime audiences. After we were given DeMarcus Family Rules, Netflix is introducing the Anderson family in Country Ever After.

Country singer Coffey Anderson and his hip hop dancer wife Criscilla Anderson open their family doors and give an insight into their life. Like DeMarcus, I was unaware of who these people were, but they evidently have relevance in the industry — their wealth shows it.

Country Ever After season 1 does feel genuine, following a family that supports each other with love and warmth. There’s always a fear that these reality shows can condemn themselves to play up for the camera, but the married couple, their children, and their careers appear to work in unison — the Netflix series shows them getting the best out of each other.

What I specifically enjoyed about Country Ever After is how the family navigate country versus city perspectives and how it impacts parenting and life. The reality series demonstrates how relationships are hard work but in a way where it shows its worth. While fictional series often discuss the “Happily ever after” arc, reality series that are realistic about long term relationships prove much more reliable.

It’s especially emotionally engaging because Criscilla has late-stage cancer — there’s a “we can beat it” attitude; the love between the couple is admirable as they consider their future and the children. The first episode is a little bit of a tear-jerker as they discuss cancer on date night.

As reality series go, it’s easy to roll our eyes at the Kardashian format, however, there’s something sweet about Country Ever After and the Anderson family.
