Wondering if Who Killed Sara? on Netflix is ok for kids? Who Killed Sara is rated TV-MA for nudity, language, suicide, and violence. There’s a lot of sex going on here and a lot of shady people. Here’s what parents need to know in this Who Killed Sara Parents Guide.

Who Killed Sara Parents Guide

Alex, a man convicted of killing his sister, is released after 18 years behind bars. Upon leaving, he only wants revenge on the Lazcano family, the people responsible for the death for which he was sentenced. However, things aren’t always what they seem and secrets just reveal more secrets. 

Parents need to know that Who Killed Sara is not appropriate for kids. With a lot of sex, nudity, and frankly, horrible people, this thriller should be left for the adults.


There is a lot of language in Who Killed Sara including many uses of f-ck, a**, bi*ch, g-ddamn, sh**, bastard, and they like to use the phrase “have the balls” a lot. There is also derogatory language like whore, slut, and fag-ot.

Mature Content

Who Killed Sara is rated TV-MA with good reason. There are a lot of heavy topics including murder, human trafficking, suicide, revenge, and sex.

Many characters (men and women and men and men) have sex and there is nudity with plenty of butts and boobs shown. The sex scenes can get quite graphic with plenty of thrusting and also between adults and minors. 

There are scenes where characters are shown masturbating when watching other characters have sex or peep on them in the shower. 

Many characters and member of the family are homophobic and use slurs.

There is violence involving guns and one character attempts suicide by shooting himself.

Graphic images of large animals being hunted and bloody are shown. 

There are scenes of women being used as prostitutes against their will and a human trafficking ring.

A man takes a teenager to a prostitute to “become a man.” 

There is a threesome between two teenage boys and a teenage girl. 

Characters are shown drinking alcohol and using drugs and abusing prescription medication.

Is Who Killed Sara Appropriate for Kids Under 16?

From the beginning of the series when Sara dies, there is mature content that isn’t appropriate for kids or teens. Then as the series continues members of the Lazcano family are exposed as really wretched human beings, and it gets worse. Between the murders, homophobia, violence against women, and gratuitous sex, I would not recommend Who Killed Sara for teens.

Netflix has been doing well with international shows like Lupin and now Who Killed Sara. The twists and turns will keep you guessing, and it’s certainly not as cheesy as a telenovela. If you like a good revenge story and root for the ones who have been wronged, then Alex is your guy. Netflix has already confirmed a Season 2 which comes out May 2021, so fans won’t have to wait too long to learn more about Who Killed Sara.
