November 8, 2018
While the show is explicit, and not everyone's cup of tea, I do believe that if you have the mindset to look beyond the obscenities, you'd understand that it's story that needs to be told.

There was no good reason to bring 13 Reasons Why back for a second season.
October 23, 2018
This new season is frustrating at times, and silly during much of its run, but there are still scenes of caring friendship, of tentative romance or raw loneliness that make up for some of the trite and forced plot developments.

As the show evolves from a mystery and teen drama into a courtroom drama, it quickly loses its footing. The result is an inessential season of TV that revels in misery.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
August 25, 2018
Because the first season covered the entire novel this new batch of episodes attempt to keep the story going. There's one fatal flaw: It really is just rewinding itself, going over everything that happened previously but with added twists.

13 Reasons Why will never spell out its life lessons for us, but for the sake of its younger viewers and my sanity, its after-show starkly does.

Is it possible to keep stretching gum? [Full Review in Spanish]
June 14, 2018
If Season 2 was about healing and about letting go,... then maybe the show should follow its own themes and move on.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
June 14, 2018
A frank, bold, important look at modern teenage life. But, as with most series, it isn't for everyone.
June 11, 2018
13 Reasons Why lacks the nuance essential to navigating this terrain.
June 7, 2018
As with the first season, 13 Reasons Why is not an easy, breezy Saturday night binge but there's something addictive about it, that is until you remember teen angst has a limited shelf life.
June 6, 2018
The second season feels more like dealing with the aftermath of the first season's criticism, while lacking a true narrative of its own.
May 25, 2018
The second season is an even more problematic dumpster fire. Like the kind of dumpster fire that can spread rapidly to other buildings and really make a giant, fiery mess of things.
May 25, 2018
13 Reasons Why's first season had its issues, but its second season is nearly unwatchable.
May 25, 2018
Remains ridiculously gratuitous and irresponsible... It is bleak and depressing, scarringly graphic and stupidly glamorising in its treatment of guns and ideas of vengeance.
May 25, 2018
The second season of Netflix's controversial teen drama 13 Reasons Why has fans asking a lot of questions.
May 24, 2018
If this season premiere feels a little imbalanced, that's because it is. 13 Reasons Why is one of the many Netflix shows that would benefit from episodes being pared down to 45 minutes, or even half an hour.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

While [13 Reasons Why] continues to try and generate conversation around important subject matters, it fails in its execution. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
May 23, 2018
The new episodes are watchable, but both the story and the message end up suffering as they jostle for airtime.
May 23, 2018
What's most important is the circumstances of how Chloe's crisis began and continues... [her] small part in the drama's imperfect plot may serve the new season's highest purpose.
