It's better than anyone could have expected, but a little less than they might have hoped.

If the new season has a breakout character, it's DeMarcus Tillman (an excellent Melvin Gregg).
October 3, 2018
For all its scatological humor-and there is a lot of that-the new season of American Vandal draws more profound conclusions than the first.

Season two offers a winning variation on that pitiable theme, with Sarah Burns' Vonnegut stan, Miss Montgomery.

Awareness of the conceit means season 2's are telegraphed more clearly than they were the first season... But it's still highly entertaining thanks to its clever take on crime docs and devoted elevation of juvenile yuks.

It gives you a visceral reaction when you see something so dark, and you want to look away, but you're compelled to know who is behind the madness.
December 20, 2018
The best thing about the show is its self-awareness and how it truly understands the modern teenage mind.
December 18, 2018
The combination of outlandish jokes and morally malleable teens wrapped up in an innate understanding of today's technology adds up to make Vandal one of the most authentic shows on TV.
December 18, 2018
Like the first season, "American Vandal" 2 is confidently made, weaving in parodies (particularly of famed documentarian Errol Morris) with a light hand.
December 18, 2018
Like season one, American Vandal has crafted a shockingly complex, genuinely intriguing mystery that it unpacks in equally clever ways.

It takes an inherently crude, childish concept and imbues it with stakes that feel life-or-death.
November 5, 2018
The whole thing is remarkably refreshing, and its understanding of youth shows serious maturity.
October 10, 2018
This time around, "American Vandal" hits some great highs. Yet the series takes a step back from its incredible first season.

October 8, 2018
The s----stained premise may put off some, but there's nothing crude about American Vandal's pin-sharp exploration of the cruelty of high school or the pressures placed on young people.
October 5, 2018
Brace yourself: This literal s**t show just might hit you in the feels.
October 4, 2018
American Vandal remains a compelling and astute high school show built around recognisable personalities, with moments of hilarity.

September 25, 2018
Though it lacks the some of the humor of the opening season, the social commentary is even richer and more thoughtful.
September 20, 2018
Despite its sophomore slump, American Vandal season two is a binge-worthy mystery that hits all its marks.

September 17, 2018
The thing to know about Season 2 of American Vandal is that it is, against all odds, a pretty dark ride.
