Tv Season Info

In Season 2, after reluctantly getting sucked into a violent and dangerous world of mistaken identity, police corruption and mental illness, Eldon Chance comes out the other side a changed man. Whether that change is due to his having killed someone or the aftermath of his traumatic brain injury remains unclear. Along with his Nietzsche-quoting, knife- wielding, antique-furniture restoring friend D, Dr. Chance takes it upon himself to help his patients, all victims of violent crimes, by using vigilante justice to take out their abusers. But the events of last season catch up with him when Detective Kevin Hynes comes knocking. He knows what Chance did and he'll keep his secret -- as long as Chance uses his newfound vigilantism to help Detective Hynes take down an elusive serial killer.

Pair these sentiments with a masterful performance from Hugh Laurie, as well as gorgeous cinematography.

The only thing I love more than Nicole's development, is D's.

Oct 11, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The series is a slow burner, but the noir mystery and Laurie keep the flames going.

Audience Reviews for Chance: Season 2

  • Jul 12, 2020
    I gave Season 1 only mediocre reviews largely because I didn't really find Hugh Laurie believable or interesting as a weak man so besotted with a crazy client that he violated his professional oath. Season 2 is much better. Other than Laurie, the casting and the acting are just unbelievably good. (I was a big fan of House, but for me, Hugh Laurie is still the weakest link. I'm not sure why--whether he is miscast or I just don't really like his character--but by the end, I do believe him as Eldon Chance.) The actresses who play his daughter (Stefania LaVie Owen), his ex-wife (Diane Farr), his assistant Lucy (Greta Lee), and the psychopath's housekeeper Lorena (Ginger Gonzaga) are excellent. I love Carl (Clarke Peters), the two psychopaths (played perfectly by Paul Schneider and Tim Griffin), and Det. Kevin Hynes (Brian Goodman). But the best by far is the actor who plays D (Ethan Suplee). He makes the whole series in my opinion--just a well-written, well-developed, well-acted character.

    Chance had some loose ends but was extremely entertaining.

    Ethan Suplee and Hugh Laurie Have you guessing at every turn in this Thriller. Some of their best work! You don't know what's coming!
  • Dec 31, 2017
    Probably the best work Hugh Laurie has done since House. Please, please, please go for season 3!!!!!

    Excellent 2nd season. Plenty of twists and turns as well as great plots and acting.
  • Dec 04, 2017
    Spoiler Alert: This season was totally a different and darker story: The vigilante duo added more sidekicks to the team and they hunted bullies, perverts and a serial killer gang. The family issues got harder to solve, friendships tightened, antagonists got sicker. And all came down to a conclusion where "all is well". Hugh Laurie acted like he was House again. He likes to act that way because people love him and his protrayal of Dr. House. Unfortunately lots of people haven't watched or even heard of there was a Hugh Laurie's medical-crime drama airing. So I guess the second season finale was the series' finale. And it felt good at last to watch him re-discovering (or remembering) that why he bothered to mess up with all the bad guys after all: For good people's sake! Cheers...

    Great series...very interesting characters!

    First Review: 2nd season amazing. 1st season very much a slow burner still good.
  • Nov 30, 2017
    Captivating, astoundingly well-executed, smartly written and brilliantly acted. Season two did the impossible by turning out better than Season one. Great on-screen chemistry, balanced and thought-out sequences of events. And season two finale, oh that finale! It managed to surprise, bring peace and happiness, and deliver a great punch line. Not many final episodes and/or shows manage that. Life moves in circles, which can become spirals, and these spirals can, if one's lucky, bring one up. I'm very optimistic about it now!

    Brilliant work by the entire cast!
