Critic Reviews for Batwoman Season 2

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (6)

"Batwoman" still too often feels like a talky soap opera with fight scenes, but these changes can add more depth to a show that's always tried to aim higher than the typical superhero stories.

Jan 20, 2021 | Full Review…

The show seems to be in good hands with Javicia Leslie.

Jan 19, 2021 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

So far, Leslie's character provides some classic "fish out of water" levity to an otherwise self-serious superhero melodrama. That novice energy comes at some cost, however, to the series' established emotional dimensions.

Jan 19, 2021 | Full Review…

At the very least, continuing the story creates the prospect of not leaving the show's fans dangling. But more than anything, the second season of Batwoman feels like an on-the-fly salvage project because that's easier than the alternatives.

Jan 19, 2021 | Full Review…

There is so much potential for compelling storytelling, and I am hesitant but hopeful that this season of Batwoman will deliver.

Jan 20, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

I'm pretty impressed that... the focus was kept squarely on Ryan and how she factored into the events that unfolded in the aftermath. Her character is also immensely engaging.

Jan 19, 2021 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

The new Batwoman is a more accessible and fun character than Kate Kane and that's a very good thing. And Javicia Leslie is an instant star.

Jan 19, 2021 | Full Review…

There was a lot of pressure on Leslie and Batwoman heading into this first outing, but everyone exceeded expectations. We hope the show is able to maintain these high standards moving forward.

Jan 19, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There's really no ideal way for Batwoman to move forward without Ruby Rose's Kate Kane, especially when Season 1 never got its proper conclusion. That being said, the Season 2 premiere makes a strong effort at establishing life after Kate.

Jan 19, 2021 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

The intentions of "Batwoman" in terms of pop representation are so welcome you can almost forgive the absurdities in the plotting.

Jan 19, 2021 | Full Review…

Javicia Leslie shines as Ryan Wilder, the new Batwoman. Despite some shortcuts with the writing to explain the changes from Season 1. Batwoman Season 2 starts with a POW! and a BANG!

Jan 18, 2021 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

Leslie definitely brings a whole different energy than Rose, portraying a wise-cracking, confident exuberance. A bit more snarky Nightwing than brooding Batwoman.

Audience Reviews for Batwoman: Season 2

  • Jan 25, 2021
    OMG, this is not a parody show?!
  • Jan 25, 2021
    Giving season 2 a chance, and it did not disappoint. How they build up Ryan Wilder as a character was nicely done. The transition to Ryan Wilder's Batwoman was "wild". I think that Batwoman season 2 will improve significantly compared to Batwoman Season 1. Moreover, with Ryan Wilder as the new Batwoman, there might be surprises, because she is a new character and out of the Wayne and Kane families. Cinematography wise, it is better than season 1, although it still has some lighting flaws. Giving it a 5 to improve it's rating. Batwoman Season 2 deserves at least a solid 4 rating. My real rating is 4.5

    You find a superhero outfit that conveniently fell into your lap, decide to put it on, and it is a conveniently snug, tailored fit. Then you become a crime fighting superhero taking gunshots whilst shouting "hey, this thing must be bulletproof...". All in a matter of seconds. They didn't even try. Terrible writing. Terrible acting. Just an absolute atrocity.
  • Jan 20, 2021
    Not sure where to begin with this mess... so I'm not going to. Painful to watch. One thing that is lingering from this smoldering pile of dung... bullets cant penetrate the suit she stole but kryptonite can?!? WTF?!?
  • Jan 20, 2021
    That was bad, and not in a good way or even "so bad its good" way. every one is exchangeable, script is bad action is bad. the first season wasn't good, but this is one of the worst second season ever on TV. Ruby Rose made a good decision by leaving this ?%#? show.
  • Jan 20, 2021
    A weird show nobody asked for.
  • Jan 20, 2021
    This was so bad, I didn't think they could outdo season 1 for bad. CW higher writers that are actual fans please.
  • Jan 20, 2021
    How can i buyback the time i lost on this?
  • Jan 20, 2021
    For an initial episode with a new lead, I am hopeful for what is to come.
  • Jan 20, 2021
    i don't even know where to begin.. i mean, seriously, I am speechless. this was bad, so bad in every possible way. i simply fail to comprehend how something so atrocious could be green- lighted, let alone getting produced and actually broadcasted! Bob Kane would be ashamed to his bones if he had to see his name associated with this absolute trash!
