Critics Consensus

Driven by an unsettlingly compelling Lizzy Caplan, Castle Rock's second chapter opens the borders of its titular town without losing any of its creeping atmosphere.

Critic Reviews for Castle Rock: Season 2

Audience Reviews for Castle Rock: Season 2

  • Sep 19, 2022
    Season 2 an improvement as the story is tighter. There is a 15- second scene at the end which sort of closes both seasons, but I wish they had continued with more seasons.
  • Aug 09, 2022
    Lizzy Caplan should have an Emmy for capturing Annie Wilkes at least as well as Kathy Bates. Her storyline made season 2 worthwhile and all of the Stephen King easter eggs unnecessary. Wasn't a huge fan of season 1 and it isn't a necessary prerequisite for season 2.
  • Oct 25, 2021
    It was difficult to get through this season because for almost 5 episodes, the story drags on to reveal the central plot. One thing worth mentioning is the focus on characters more than plot, it is less utilised in horror stories. Stitching together King's stories was also done seamlessly. The actors have given their best in their performance as well, especially Lizzy Caplan. Despite all this good aspects, it somehow did not shape up to anything.

    Once again, set up all the dominoes, failed to knock them down
  • Jan 27, 2021
    The series benefits most when its leads its focus on psychotic Annie and the mystery and storyline around her character. The other storylines don't add much weight. I feel the series would have benefited from a central psychological thriller storyline, and removing the unnecessary elements with some subtle references to the other King novels.
  • Jan 21, 2021
    Simply appalling that no one ever brings to justice the child-abusing, murderous, psychotic abductress lead character.
  • Nov 27, 2020
    A slow burn horror series, giving us the vibe of one creepy horror city with everyone living inside it. Two alternating storylines for each season, giving us a big picture of what's going on. Bill Skarsgård (ex Clown of ‘IT') perfectly portrayed his role as one creepy character for Season 1. However the plot remains questionable for Season 2 | follow us at @uncle.review

    Another anti-white story. Bad bigoted white men, Somalia men all good. Liked season 1 but season 2 is another boring story with a forced ideology . Yawn!
  • May 12, 2020
    A amazing performance by Lizzy Caplan, and by Bill Skarsgård. A season that had a few plot holes but more consistently disturbed then its prior season.
  • Apr 11, 2020
    Hulu wrote "STEPHEN KING" on a baseball bat, and hit the audience with it. There's no suspense and absolutely no intellect to this mess. And boy do I mean "mess." It's a curiosity watch for Corona and nothing more. Pretty miserable, to be honest.
