Critic Reviews for Making a Murderer Season 2

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (12)

The return of Making a Murderer is inevitably frustrating, their cases becoming bogged down in endless technicalities. But as a portrait of American dysfunction, it is fascinating.

Right now, Part 2 feels like false hope, and the filmmakers would've been better off waiting for something to happen before pushing out another wearying report.

Top Critic

Series two has a slower burn than series one, but Zellner is a compellingly watchable focus.

Oct 19, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

No matter what you come out believing by the end, one thing is clear, this story is a long way off having an ending, which at this point - given the number of lives that have already been destroyed - can never be a happy one.

Season two is just as addictive as the first, though it's starting to feel like a habit we should try to kick.

Revalidates why it's considered the mother of the docu-series. [Full review in Spanish]

May 14, 2019 | Full Review…

The second season does not develop efficiently. [Full Review in Spanish]

Mar 4, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Making A Murderer: Part Two may not sweep the nation as immediately as its predecessor, but the docuseries is no less compelling.

Jan 1, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

What the documentary is missing, as it was in the first season, is a real sense of who in this mess is the victim.

Nov 9, 2018 | Full Review…

It's every bit as compelling, and frustrating, as the first [season].

Audience Reviews for Making a Murderer: Season 2

  • May 08, 2019
    Corrupt coos over there need to come undone
  • Mar 09, 2019
    Not as good a #1 but still innocent.
  • Mar 01, 2019
    Not as good as season 1, but an acceptable follow up.
  • Feb 09, 2019
    This documentary is very well done. I suspect most of the negative responses are based more in America's hatred of older, powerful women than honest appraisals of the documentary.
  • Feb 05, 2019
    I love how Netflix is making these real crime series, they are way better than any so called reality TV, or crime show dramas on TV. This show really caught my attention as a former Police Officer. You could tell from the start something was not right about the police force and prosecutor of the county. I am not 100% certain Steven is innocent, but I am almost certain the local police department planted evidence and are as corrupt as hell. This is one of Netflix's best program, or show. It will have you totally engrossed in it from start to finish. Well worth the binge watching.

    Devastating to see the misconduct of law enforcement and innocent lives destroyed. Riveting and devastating.
  • Dec 29, 2018
    Very compelling, even if everything you see is from one side. Still nakes you think.
  • Dec 27, 2018
    The fact that professional critics give it 71 % makes me strongly disregard what professional critics think on this website. Season 2 is great. It has the same truth centered, uplifting vibes as the first season. Probably less intense, but still, great. Both seasons are certainly at least 90 %. The new character in season 2, the feminine lawyer, is surprisingly entertaining, intuitive, and intelligent. Well done "Making a Murderer"
  • Dec 03, 2018
    There's something unsatisfying about the second season. We kind of run in place to the point of no return, but It's still bingeworthy.
  • Dec 03, 2018
    This show is amazing and everyone should watch it. This season was probably the most interesting season yet. The reasons why its so interesting is they take into play the popularity of the first season. They cover all the talk the show caused around the country and world. Another part they show is the evidence that they found after the show. It really makes the show interesting because it is developing in real time.
