Critic Reviews for Bloodline Season 2

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (7)

Tense family drama.

Mar 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Well, that's that. The second season of Bloodline is officially a disappointment. Despite strong performances throughout, this year's story never felt as confident as the first.

Jun 7, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The show's darker tone gives its powerhouse cast more to play with. The Rayburns are no longer just a family with a difficult brother, or good people who did a bad thing. Maybe they're much, much worse.

Everything is framed with such purpose, imbued with meaning and mood. The gorgeous cinematography of Bloodline is one thing that keeps season two looking and feeling like season one.

At 10 episodes, season two should have had a tighter storyline, but what we got instead was a long, drawn out plot that at times seemed to make up mysteries on the spot in an effort to be just as mysterious as the first season.

Jun 3, 2016 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

Bloodline's second season looks slicker, tighter, leaner, and just more confident than its debut.

Aug 14, 2017 | Full Review…

Chandler's charisma comes into full flourish in Bloodline.

Dec 9, 2016 | Full Review…

The acting is still top-notch, but the material is not.

Sep 21, 2016 | Full Review…

Guilt, paranoia, and mystery are all on center stage during the season's opening hour... the necessary elements to once again hook viewers on the story of truly dysfunctional Rayburn family.

Jun 3, 2016 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The first eight episodes of the season are pretty much just the characters waiting for something big to happen.

May 29, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

A drama should do more than wallow.

May 27, 2016 | Full Review…

Bloodline isn't bad TV ... [b]ut it's not necessarily bingeworthy TV either.

Audience Reviews for Bloodline: Season 2

    Not sure why the critics panned it. If you loved Season 1, which I did, you'll likely love Season 2.
  • May 25, 2020
    Losing one star for flat action. Lots of buildup, delivery is not quite there.
  • May 24, 2020
    Fantastic, but leaves you cringing because the plot just gets darker and darker, but continued excellent acting.

    Wonderful cast!!! Love that it's based in the keys!

    Just loved it. The whole series kept me on the edge of my seat. Wanting more!!!!!!!

    what a fantastic season 1. and then the idiots kill off danny, the only real hook in the series. actually, the whole thing screamed for a few seasons with danny as center of it all, then bring an unbelievable twist. nope. game over.

    Bloodline Season 2 was better than the first. More action, more lies, and a stronger storyline. Although it is sad to see Mendelsohn essentially not a part of the cast, Cardellini picks up and shows her talents in this season. It is sort of a nail biter. The show does a good job at keeping you from making your mind up as to whether you love, hate or love to hate the characters.

    Another strong season from Bloodline. Lacking the first seasons intrigue but twisting the lives of the Rayburn family for our amusement. Pleasantly surprised by this season, very gripping and deserves more plaudits.

    Most of the critics here seem to be whining about 'how long it all took' - but that's where all the tension lies! It's not supposed to be a quick paced show. But I guess if you missed that then you've missed the entire experience really.

    This season gets interesting and is more on your toes style. New characters are introduced, new problems arrive and old ones come to the surface.
