American Gods: Season 2 (2019)

SEASON:

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: American Gods retains its bombastic style but loses its divine inspiration in a derivative second season that, after a change in show-runners and even some crucial cast members, feels like a false idol.

Critic Reviews for American Gods Season 2

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (5)

American Gods is building to something - an apocalyptic clash of ideas about who we are, what we believe and what defines us. The thing is: It's looking to be a long trip... But man, the scenery is pretty.

Watch this show cynically, and the whole edifice might topple down. But go along with it and it's one hell of a ride. Like the gods themselves, American Gods requires - and rewards - your unquestioning faith.

After all the work done to keep the show going - and the very real risk it might not keep going - one would hope for more onscreen urgency. Instead, it just continues on, as if nothing changed and nothing will.

It's so dazzling you almost forget that, for all the fireworks, there's precious little by way of plot.

What felt like an engaging arthouse experiment the first time around now becomes a classic clash of super beings. How it turns out remains to be seen, but for now it still manages to keep the faith alive.

The messiness is still there, but now it's not offset with the same amount of style and charm.

This season gives the feeling that it is the result of a process of forced readjustment. [Full Review in Spanish]

What it lacks in terms of general drive, or things happening, it makes up for in ethereal tone.

Mar 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Fans of the first series should probably go back and enjoy that again immediately. Anticipation for the second will likely evaporate on contact.

Mar 13, 2019 | Full Review…

The problem with this opener was that there was too little blood-drinking and head-lopping and too much plotsplaining.
