At the same time, on Metacritic, the reaction from the target audience was mostly mixed, 5.0/10, while Chris Barton (Los Angeles Times) has rated the first installment of The Oath at 30/100. An overall score of The Oath on IMDb looks average but favorable, 6.5/10 ~ 600 votes. Though we consider these statistics rather average, it appears that Crackle found the digits acceptable.

The story focuses on a world of gangs which consist of those sworn to protect and defend. The series thereby explores the world of corrupt cops, which is unseen for the most of the people. The primary storyline follows Tom Hammond, a former leader of a gang known as The Ravens, which had consisted of cops. Upon release from jail, Tom finds his son, Steve, while he is replacing him as a leader of his gang. Meanwhile, the rival cop gang, The Vipers, managed to take over a pact with a drug dealer, Neckbone. At the same time, the FBI is about to destroy the plans of both gangs and put an end to the existence of any corrupt cops.
On The Likely Release Date For A Season 2
As we have mentioned above, Crackle has confirmed the renewal of The Oath for another season. However, the online broadcaster has yet to set a specific release date for a next round. Given the fact that the first installment of The Oath consists of only ten episodes, the next season could premiere this fall. But we don’t know how difficult and expensive could be the production process. So it could take about a year to film a sophomore season as well as to promote it. As a result, we don’t rule out that the upcoming premiere could take place in March 2019, given the current schedule of the web series. Accordingly, we are looking forward to the official announcement from Crackle on the subject. And we’ll update this article after the broadcaster announces the exact date. For now, stay tuned for updates. We’ll keep you informed.
