Critic Reviews for A Discovery of Witches Season 2

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

Both its fantasy and romance are too weighted down in season two; in its dedication to recreating the historical setting of Elizabethan London, the series loses some of its magic.

Jan 15, 2021 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Enthusiastically bonkers, it made for perfect New Year hokum.

Jan 12, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Gorgeously executed, generously cast and visually pleasing, it's hey-nonny-nonsense from start to finish.

Jan 11, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It now offers a quite evocative rendering of 16th-century England. But it's not very anything. Its pulse is much too steady.

Jan 11, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

If you are seeking some harmlessly enjoyable escapism from real life, and brooding vampire love stories are your cup of tea, I would recommend switching off the real world peril for a while and checking out some fantasy peril instead.

Jan 19, 2021 | Full Review…

Matthew Goode and Teresa Palmer are eerily masterful, and they now get to timeshift!

Jan 11, 2021 | Full Review…

The casting is perfection, and of the seven episodes I've seen so far, it is that time that swells my heart.

Jan 11, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Casual viewers who were here for the sartorial style, sizzling sexual tension and supernatural hi-jinx might find A Discovery of Witches season two all just a touch dour.

Jan 11, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

This season isn't just about Diana controlling her magic and finding the Book of Life. It's about finally understanding just who Matthew Clairmont is.

Jan 11, 2021 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Full of drama and intrigue, but not on account of the plot! Really, it is the costuming, cinematography and music that captures our attention and makes our eyes widen to saucers.

Jan 11, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Goode seems right at home in the Elizabethan trappings of Season 2, which enables him to bring out new shades of Matthew that range from an intense darkness, to perhaps more surprisingly, a bit of levity.

Jan 5, 2021 | Full Review…

A Discovery of Witches just about holds it together, with the world-building and performances compelling enough to pull you through the new complex web of spies, witches, religious vampires and historical figures to focus on Matthew and Diana's story.

Audience Reviews for A Discovery of Witches: Season 2

  • 14h ago
    I lowkey hate this new trend of having just 8/9 episodes for season. In shows like these, it just means that part of the plot line is under developed, it feels rushed to the viewer. Despite that, and even though I preferred the first season, it's a good show.
  • Jan 19, 2021
    Series 2 is a huge disappointment. Tired old tropes. Man as monster and predator. Nothing new.
  • Jan 18, 2021
    Superb production values with a phenomenal acting ensemble headed up by the lovely and compelling Teresa Palmer (Diana Bishop) and incomparable thespian, Matthew Goode (Matthew Clairmont). Showrunners made a brilliant move by also focusing on Matthew Clairmont's dark past and murderous secrets; a source of his own self-tortured guilt which Goode delivers in a tour-de-force performance. This is high-end fantasy drama at its best!
  • Jan 16, 2021
    The only bad thing about this series is that I'm not completely absorbed but will have to wait a year for the next season! All round though it is great, if I could then I would give it 4.5/5 as it can be a tad slow at times but it's such a minor complaint. I rarely rewatch shows but I'll definitely be giving this another go.

    Season one was great but they really stepped up their game with visuals, costumes and music. Great new cast additions. It's so visually pleasing and it feels like a movie (Queen Elizabeth last scene with shadow especially stayed in my mind)
  • Jan 13, 2021
    Matthew Goode and Teresa Palmer are the perfect Matthew and Diana. This season is more intense, more complex and more beautiful, they always leave the viewer wanting more. I can't wait to see the next season.
