Critic Reviews for Big Little Lies Season 2

All Critics (79) | Top Critics (31)

The misery of beautiful people continues to be a moral as well as aesthetic pleasure as Big Little Lies continues its second series.

The entire second season works better than it has any right to...

A second season was a creative risk. But so far that decision to continue the story is one well worth following.

Happily enough these first few episodes are just as engrossing as those that came before. Scenes rapidly fluctuate from concerning to hilarious, but keeping up with the pace is no problem: This emotional roller coaster is far too fun.

I'm still not sure I can say that the return of Big Little Lies is altogether necessary. But I can say that it promises to be thoroughly enjoyable and smart.

It's harder now to ignore, watching the early episodes of Season Two, that Big Little Lies is offering up some of the best psychological storytelling on television.

Jun 7, 2019 | Full Review…

By leaning into exaggeration this season, though, Big Little Lies has made its more sober elements feel like afterthoughts to jokes about the ridiculousness of Californians and self-absorbed stay-at-home moms.

If the show isn't the singular masterpiece of the first season, that's because that season was truly meant to be singular. But coming close to meeting a bar set that high is still worth toasting with a glass of champagne over a gorgeous fire pit.

Episode one came charging out of the traps with a glint in its eye and vengeance in its heart.

Jun 19, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

It's unclear what new conflicts the women will get themselves embroiled in, but from the first episode, it'll obviously be a fun ride.
