Critic Reviews for Dead to Me Season 2

All Critics (45) | Top Critics (13)

Come for the buried bodies and the unlikely twists and turns, I guess. But definitely stick around for the performances, especially Applegate's.

Dec 16, 2020 | Full Review…

It's an obvious rehash of Season 1, which doesn't aim for anything more than moving through the plot with enough speed to keep you watching.

Dec 16, 2020 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

[It] starts off so strong...with a lot of quick changes and twists...

Jun 23, 2020 | Full Review…

It's a show built to breeze through, just letting all of its many major twists and turns roll on by despite their (often intentional) absurdity.

May 8, 2020 | Full Review…

This was a difficult season to execute, with the show becoming so popular in its first outing, but it does a great job in upping the ante.

Dec 16, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Not only is Season 2 on-beat to its predecessor, but it is also inarguably better... It's a painfully easy one-day binge, making itself the equivalent of drinking a cold cider on a hot summer's day -- you thirst for more.

Dec 16, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Luckily, Applegate and Cardellini are great partners... The two are great together even when Dead to Me doesn't give them the scenes they deserve.

Dec 16, 2020 | Full Review…

The Dead to Me writers continue to be inordinately perceptive at observing how connected anger and grief are, and the many challenges involved with learning to cope and move forward. The result is another season of moving, thoughtful television.

Dec 16, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The Netflix original series is riveting, thrilling, tragic, and utterly moving at times. And its thought-provoking portrayal of female friendships, is unlike any other series with two female leads.

Nov 18, 2020 | Full Review…

"Dead to Me" is an easy watch that will allow you to effortlessly pass the time while being entertained in a fresh new way.

Jun 7, 2020 | Full Review…

It's melodramatic without any excuse. The characters' purpose has been lowered to satisfy a boring lack of dark comedy. [Full review in Spanish].

Jun 2, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

When actress and character come together so flawlessly, you want to keep coming back for more.

Audience Reviews for Dead to Me: Season 2

  • 4d ago
    Dead To Me exceeds any and all expectations with a sensational second season. It grabs your attention from the first episode and does not stop until the season finale. The cast and the writing are utterly superb. Better than season 1 which, in my opinion, is rare!
  • Mar 26, 2021
    Aumenta el suspenso que mantuvo la primera temporada, y el desenlace final te deja con ganas de más, en espera de la tercera temporada!
  • Mar 03, 2021
    The first season surprised me in its originality and twisty plot - The second season was a little less satisfying with fewer surprises and slower pacing but I'm still hoping for a season 3. BTW - Linda Cardellini is an underappreciated hidden treasure - she should be working more.

    If te season 1 was great, this one surpasses it, I need other pliss

    Dead to Me continues to deliver its dark comedy and it doubles down on the thrills and suspense to deliver another fantastic season featuring the irresistibly hilarious duo of Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini. Dead to Me's nicely balanced dark and comedic tone mixed with its addictively pulpy premise will undoubtably leave fans excited for a third season.

    While I wouldn't say it quite matches the same quality as the first season from a storytelling point, James Marston being a bigger part was fantastic, and his character added a perfect layer of depth to the already amazing twin leads. Between the three of them they bounce off eachother so well I could happily just sit and watch them converse for far longer than I'd like to admit. The twists and turns are still good, if not as good as the first season, and the ending left me very excited for the next season. Overall, another great season!
  • Sep 19, 2020
    Still as good as the first season. I binged the whole two seasons in a few days. I normally don't like Rom-Coms, but this show was funny and dramatic and real about friendships but at the same time not really realistic how coincidental the events were connected. But I guess it technically could happen. The acting is superb! Christina and Linda are excellent.
  • Sep 13, 2020
    I don't know what I love more, the wacky, incredible dialogues or the captivating performances of the two leads. Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini are SO GOOD, individually but most of all together. Highly entertaining.
  • Sep 12, 2020
    The twists are more wicked, the performances are louder, there are buckets more tears, and a bed load more sex. Dead to Me takes a little longer to get going in its second season, but when it catches light, it burns. It burns hard. It burns fast. Sparks start flying everywhere as we get drawn in by these deeply repulsive yet oh-so compelling characters. But, when we finally invest our souls into their grief and guilt-stricken lives, we get caught in the crossfire of a fully realised comedic psychological crime thriller, full of lies, mystery, murder, revenge, stop signs and some good old fashioned dancing. It may seem like a mess, and it is, but the glue that keeps it together is the two powerhouse females at the helm. Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, take a bow ---- I could water my entire garden with jugs of the tears those writers make you shed each episode. Iroh's grade: B
