Critic Reviews for DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 2

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3)

For those who gave up on Legends after its disappointing first season, take heart that the story might finally be getting the justice it deserves.

That's not to say that "Fellowship" totally eschews the "let's do whatever sounds most fun" atmosphere that's defined the show's sophomore season, but this is certainly a darker and more melancholy episode than we've seen from "Legends" recently

Dec 12, 2017 | Full Review…

It's my favorite show on television, and it could be yours too.

Apr 4, 2017 | Full Review…

The overall story arc was a great laugh and it has some outstanding episodes. Top stuff, and I truly hope they can continue this momentum into Season 3.

Feb 17, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

As far as premieres go, this was about as much fun as Legends of Tomorrow could find space to cram in.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

I could watch a show just about them going on their evil road-trip through time.

Jul 29, 2018 | Full Review…

The first two episodes of the new year of "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" have both been a lot of fun, even if the two respective groups have often been at odds with one another throughout. Not that it's necessarily a bad thing, mind you.

Feb 1, 2017 | Full Review…

It's not Legends weakest effort by far, but in comparison to the strong openers of The Flash and Supergirl, it still has a lot to achieve.

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

A high-profile guest star adds little energy to the team's time-hopping adventures. Here's hoping Legends of Tomorrow season 2 places more of an emphasis on character than overly convoluted plot in upcoming episodes.

Oct 9, 2016 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

Last season, The CW premiered Legends of Tomorrow... and it was weird...While the season two premiere features similar stylings, it packs an ending that will definitely make viewers want to come back for more.

    With a strong sense of humor, and a bigger focus on the ensemble, season 2 is an improvement over the already great first.
  • Jul 01, 2020
    É melhor que a primeira, mas levada nas costas pelos vilões, principalmente o rip hunter, que na minha opinião é o melhor personagem da série.
  • Apr 05, 2020
    A much better season and fun travelling across history with these heroes.
  • Jan 28, 2020
    With more Time travel, humor and new characters to elevate it's storyline Season 2 of 'Legends of Tomorrow' makes for a better, more improved and eventually just an excellent Season.
