Critic Reviews for Castle Season 2

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Castle is good, but it's not great. It's not clear it even wants to be the latter, and that's totally OK (fun TV can be really good TV).

Oct 27, 2009 | Rating: B | Full Review…

I'm glad that Nathan Fillion has found a vehicle that'll remain on the air longer than 2002's Firefly.

May 5, 2010 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The character moments are well handled, and that's always been the focus of the series anyways.

Aug 22, 2017 | Rating: 7.2/10 | Full Review…

Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic bring their spectacular chemistry back for another season of the increasingly enjoyable Castle, a mystery-of-the-week show distinguished by excellent writing and some of the best lead chemistry on television.

Dec 13, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The crimes were just as puzzling and interesting, but the biggest improvement this season came from including more of the supporting cast and giving all of the characters a personal connection to many of the cases they investigated.

Sep 6, 2013 | Rating: 8.3/10 | Full Review…

The relationship between Castle and Beckett reminds me of the early years of Moonlighting, when Maddie and David had sexual tension to play off of.

Audience Reviews for Castle: Season 2

  • Jul 12, 2020
    Richard Castle continues playing junior detective with the NYPD into a second season of ABC's hit drama Castle. This season Becket is drawn into a deadly game by a homicidal stalker obsessed with her fictional alter ego Nikki Heat, Esposito is confronted by his past when his former partner returns from the dead, and Castle reunites with a long lost love. Additionally, the mystery of Beckett's mother's murder is revisited and turns out to be a greater mystery than previously thought. Michael Trucco joins the cast as a recurring character and a number of special guest stars are featured, including Alyssa Milano, Ray Wise, Dina Meyer, Dana Delany, Michael Ironside, and Fred Willard. However, with a full 24-episode season the show starts to get a little formulaic at times. Still, it tries some new things with a 2-part episode, a Halloween special, and some continuing story arcs. A strong follow-up to Season 1, Season 2 of Castle is entertaining and full of exciting murder mysteries.
