Critic Reviews for Fleabag Season 2

All Critics (94) | Top Critics (41)

In an entertainment landscape that rarely grants women characters the range to be challenging, Fleabag's commitment to exploring the sisters' anxieties about (and slow progress toward) one another is a breath of fresh air.

May 24, 2019 | Full Review…

Fleabag Season 2, which I cannot recommend highly enough, is thrillingly deep, funny, and buoyant.

May 16, 2019 | Full Review…

The first season was always meant to stand alone. That the second... is so successfully additive and so satisfyingly final in its conclusion, feels like a minor miracle.

May 16, 2019 | Full Review…

A portrait of grief, fear, and love that's startling, painful, achingly funny, unbearably sexy, pretty much perfect, and somehow better than the first season. It is a marvel. It should not exist.

May 16, 2019 | Full Review…

Season 2 is a towering accomplishment, proving what many have suspected since her debut: Waller-Bridge is operating on a higher plane, and she's kind enough to take the audience along with her.

May 7, 2019 | Rating: A | Full Review…

The resulting second season is a meticulous triumph as gorgeous as it is wrenching.

Dec 4, 2019 | Full Review…

That's the hat trick of Fleabag - it makes the audience champion a character they might not agree with, stand with, or completely understand.

Jul 31, 2020 | Full Review…

[Fleabag] deems the eternal debate about "good feminism" vs "bad feminism" as just another self-defeating litmus test against which women gauge their imperfections - which inevitably instills fears of falling short of the "ideal feminist's" expectations.

Jul 23, 2020 | Full Review…

In a sea of television content, was never a big fish, but in two short seasons, the tragi-com proved to be one of the medium's absolute best.

Jan 17, 2020 | Full Review…

In a television landscape drowning with new shows, Fleabag holds its own and stands proudly as a shining example that you can still surprise people.

Jan 2, 2020 | Full Review…

All the show's vulgar charm - and there is plenty of that, and at its best you're fully conspiring with it - somehow runs down before its time.

Dec 4, 2019 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

We will always have this hilarious, tempestuous, raw work of genius at our fingertips. It's been a pleasure.

    An ABSOLUTE MASTERPIECE! The acting is insane and I will never stop to iterate that Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a GENIUS!!!

    Simply one of the best series - Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a genius!
  • Feb 26, 2021
    Great fun yet so sad and heartbreaking and real! The writing and cast are on point.

    RATING: A+ Creator: Phoebe Waller-Bridge Director: Harry Bradbeer First of all I have to say after you have seen the first Season of Fleabag you probably will be thinking the same that I did: There just is no way that the second one is as good as the first one, well they somehow made that exact thing. Season 2 of Fleabag keeps the brilliance of the first one. The Characters are fantastically written, the Performances are great, the Writing in general as well as the Direction and the jokes are as vicious as in the first instalment. And Andrew Scott is a perfect inclusion to the cast, as the Priest. And without giving away too much in the fourth episode or so they have 10 Minutes of absolute brilliance ( even more than usual ) were they break all the rules we know about fourth wall breaking. And I really hope they don't make a third one ( even though I'd watch it for sure ) but unfortunately there isn't any possibility in which this could get better.

    Never disappoint. Brilliant writing and screenplay.

    I am glad the writer decided to not continue on with another season. This entire season was a satisfying culmination to the show, I was very pleased with the ending where the characters stayed true to themselves, essentially. It felt like everyone had reached their organic "end", there were barely any stones unturned and I found it refreshing. I would recommend that to anyone who was not squeamish about sexual content on TV.

    I like the show's dramatic side more than the comedic. Phoebe Waller-Bridge take a bow!
  • Sep 24, 2020
    "Fleabag" seems to only strengthen with its second season. Raw, yet so charming and beautiful at times, Fleabag continues to tug on my heartstrings as she navigates through her life. Full of jokes, love, and sex, this season will leave you tired (in a good way). Our star still full of grief finds new ways to deal with her problems in this follow up season. Great performances from the cast, brilliant writing, and awesome fourth wall-breaks all deserve an A+.

    Two seasons down but my astonishment is way up. What is everyone seeing that I'm not? It's mildly funny, it is very well done, writing can be overly cheeky, the constant fourth wall stares, grimaces, eye rolls, just about anything someone can do with a face PWB does it. If I think hard, the only reason people love this so much, is she represents all that is missing from their boring lives. Crazy sex, in the butt bob(old Newlywed Game joke), telling people what you really think of them, but with a cheeky smile etc. etc .etc. Watched two episodes of 30 Rock right after so much better written, and they were doing 20 episodes not six. Oh well, at least I only had to spend 6 hours instead of 10-12.

    Took me a couple of episodes to get use to the occasional fourth wall break, but once I got the hang of it, I appreciated every moment of it. First class performance from Phoebe Waller
