Tv Season Info

In the second-season opener, Elizabeth (Téa Leoni) takes the oath of office after President Dalton's (Keith Carradine) plane disappears over the Pacific Ocean. It seems as though a skilled hacker has found a way to override communications on Air Force One, but who does he work for and how much further will he go? When strange things start happening at the McCord house, Elizabeth and Henry (Tim Daly) grow concerned that someone is stalking her family. The Defense Intelligence Agency asks Henry to recruit one of his Russian students to work for the U.S. government, but it will take a lot of persuading to accomplish. Stevie's (Wallis Currie-Wood) relationship with the president's son continues, but she begins to question their future. Elizabeth gets on board with the president's campaign for re-election, but her political views may cost him votes. Executive Producer Morgan Freeman directs and guest stars in the first episode of the season.

Critic Reviews for Madam Secretary Season 2

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

Keep up the good work, Madam Secretary. You've got my vote.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

Finally, these characters have developed the connections that make you wish you were a part of the team.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

It was a rather exciting hour and set up a new mystery to be solved this season.

Oct 5, 2015 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Madam Secretary shines more through its star, Tea Leoni, and its supporting cast, than its stories, which work harder than they probably need to to make the job of secretary of state look interesting.

Audience Reviews for Madam Secretary: Season 2

  • Oct 11, 2019
    The series continues strongly. Very entertaining, and intelligently written. Often events are brought up that mirror real-world issues. I love how Mr. McCord is also made to be a strong character that we can respect. Well done!
  • Dec 21, 2018
    My wife and I watch this show together on Netflix and we've thoroughly enjoyed it. While many of the plots seem predictable the cliffhangers are well done. Bess's character is believable and mostly realistic. Her husband Henry is the only character in the series that I have a hard time believing could have a real life counterpart, but even then I enjoy his quips and sidequests. Conrad is the president most of us actually want to lead the country, and Russell is who I picture when I think of the White House chief-of-staff (along with Leo McGarry from the West Wing). If you're looking for a semi-serious, enjoyable, and relate-able show to watch in the evenings this is it.
  • Jun 20, 2017
    My fave tv series. Would give 10/10 if I could.

    Season 2 went into more exciting and more conflicting forays while staying true to its warm, wise, family-friendly vibe.
  • May 09, 2016
    This show just keeps getting stronger. The first season centered around conspiracies within the US government and the CIA, and while those were satisfactorily resolved, the scenario seemed to me a bit contrived. The second season put all that behind us and focused much more on world politics. While Tea Leoni's performance in the title role continues to carry the show, the supporting cast was given much more to do, and really shone. I very much look forward to Season 3.
  • Mar 20, 2016
    The show is so preposterous as to defy description. Leoni is a cardboard character
  • Mar 17, 2016
    We love Madam Secretary
  • Feb 18, 2016
    I continue to enjoy this show.
  • Jan 10, 2016
    Brilliant casting, I like the smart writing, with the plus that the stories could actually happen. Somewhat based on real world, stay focused on worldly events and keep the acting at a high lever ... can not go wrong.
