Tv Season Info

Season two of this modern fable set in Long Beach, CA centers on likable "Squire" and ex-surfer Sean "Dud" Dudley (Wyatt Russell), whose beloved fraternal order -- the Ancient and Benevolent Order of the Lynx -- is suffering under new rule by an ill-suited leader. Despite his "Knight" and mentor Ernie's (Brent Jennings) lost faith, and his twin sister Liz's (Sonya Cassidy) struggle with their past, Dud believes he is the key to restoring the Lodge to its former grandeur and putting the rightful king on the throne. In addition to Russell, Jennings and Cassidy, this season's cast includes Linda Emond (Connie), Eric Allan Kramer (Scott) and David Pasquesi (Blaise).

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (7)

The show is full of sly signs, portents, and odd, incidental details that end up paying out many episodes later.

A country-hopping, plane-transcending hangout with individuals of boundless depth.

What a performance by Jennings! What a vision of the splendor in the regular! And Lodge 49 was beautiful - is, darn it, is beautiful!

Oct 15, 2019 | Rating: A | Full Review…

Somehow the actors and writers throw equal parts of mundane reality into a bowl of bizarre and whipped the combination of reality and fantasy into a cream thick enough to hold up. It feels right and not quite right at the same time.

What comes next is a series of strange and fascinating tableaux which, although I'm happy to let this beautiful show just wash over me, I couldn't resist pausing and rewinding in order to make sense of the iconography.

Lodge 49 is a show that's all over the place and yet feels elegantly and confidently arced, rather than haphazard. It's silly and profound, deep and frivolous.

Aug 13, 2019 | Full Review…

With an ever-spiraling narrative that raises questions many shows have never thought to ask, Lodge 49 can keep you on the edge of your seat while warming you from the inside out.

Jan 6, 2020 | Full Review…

It's in the episode's sense of finality where a wealth of meaning makes this one of the most poignant Lodge 49 episodes yet.

Aug 21, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

We predict Season 2 will have more viewers than Season 1.

Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Lodge 49 has big ambitions - it's a series primarily about why American society feels like it's coming apart at the seams, after all - beneath its easygoing sensibility.

Aug 13, 2019 | Full Review…

For viewers who are tuned to that distinct wavelength, Lodge 49 continues to be a unique gem whose continuation during the age of Peak TV is nothing short of a miracle itself.

Aug 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Lodge 49 is both whimsical and pragmatic, a cacophonous collection of divergent ideologies that through some bewildering alchemy not only works but thrives.

Audience Reviews for Lodge 49: Season 2

    An exceptional show marked by brilliant writing brought to life by a talented cast, Lodge 49 was simply too good for this world. Genius is never appreciated in its time.
  • Dec 27, 2019
    I just love this show. It's pace, it's characters, the locations. It's so very, very different than anything else on television. It's the very best writing come alive in character, and it's just delicious.

    More of the brilliance the first season held.

    The quirkiness continues...and thank god! It ended with such a killer cliffhanger, but the last few episodes had so much going for it. Thank you AMC for giving this show a chance, but it's time for Hulu or someone to pick it up and help finish the journey. This show is so good. #SaveLodge49 Do it for the good of the Lodge!

    Great season! The characters are my favorite part of this show - it is very well written, cast, and acted. I hope we are able to get some more seasons of this show to finish out the story.
  • Nov 22, 2019
    Second seasons can be such a disappointment. Not in this case. Lodge 49 just gets better, smarter, funnier, and more ingenious. The characters continue to grow into their most believable selves. Special shout out to Sonya Cassidy whose courage and vulnerability is enough to break your heart in a million pieces. I spend a ridiculous amount of time worrying no network will save this brilliant show. It 100% deserves a third and fourth season to bring the full story arc to its rightful conclusion.

    An amazing follow up to the first season! Some of the best acting on Tv today!!!
  • Nov 12, 2019
    As good as Season 1 is, Season 2 takes it to the next level. A mixture of comedy, buddy road trip, and a dose of drama - this is hard to beat. The season finale is one of the best episodes of TV I've ever had the pleasure to watch.
  • Nov 12, 2019
    Just continues to be the best show on TV. The cast this season really stretched out - the depth of the story, scenes and acting continues to unfold. There's not enough said about the mystical in this show, which is well-represented and more accurately depicted in this show than any other, ever. In all this greatness, it's still hilarious at times—all while being emotionally charged and touching. I cannot say enough good things about Lodge 49, and there's not enough room here to say it all. I love the Lodge.
