Tv Season Info

The second season of this comedy brings more trouble for Christy (Anna Faris) when a gambling incident sees her lose the rent money, which forces her to move her family into a motel. She and Baxter (Matt L. Jones) also clash over their history and relationships with Violet (Sadie Calvano) and Roscoe (Blake Garrett Rosenthal), while Violet begins acting out. But, the biggest challenges come when there's a death in the family and Bonnie (Allison Janney) shows signs of relapse.

Critic Reviews for Mom Season 2

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

These new episodes are clearly designed to showcase [Allison Janney]. But, with their heavy-handed, lecturing tone mixed with bawdy defiance, they don't end up serving anyone very well.

Mom finds laughter in pain as one of the very few socially relevant comedies anywhere on TV.

Apr 21, 2015 | Full Review…

Mom remains funny, thanks in large part to the great work of Allison Janney as Christy's potty-mouthed mom, Bonnie.

Oct 30, 2014 | Full Review…

That it's still funny is probably a kind of miracle, the kind you just might not want to miss.

Oct 30, 2014 | Full Review…

Now the series is a weekly dose of substance, one that stands out in a network-television universe full of nontraditional families and dysfunction. It manages the difficult trick of venturing into seriousness without growing overly maudlin or preachy.

Oct 17, 2017 | Full Review…

In its second season, Mom has kicked the crap out of its main characters week after week, and they've come out of it with their wits sharpened.

Top Critic

Even if they're barely keeping hope alive through mordant laughter, Mom is oddly uplifting in its portrayal of scrappy survival against the economic odds.

Oct 30, 2014 | Full Review…

Everything I like about Mom remains intact and rather than de-emphasizing the emotional bumpiness, Thursday's premiere is adding more layers.

Audience Reviews for Mom: Season 2

    Mom season 2 picked up where it was left off and added more funny gags each episode while preserving a long lasting storyline. Season 2 was even better than season 1 thanks for the smart direction and clever script

    This is my favorite show right now.
  • Oct 22, 2017
    This is still my 3rd favorite comedy ever. This season is even better than the first one. The jokes and writing are always funny and the story's emotional depth is amazing. Alison Janney and Anna Faris's chemistry is still fantastic. The cast all give stupendous and hilarious performances especially Alison Janney, Anna Faris, Mimi Kennedy, Matt Jones, French Stewart, Jamie Pressly, Kevin Pollack, Octavia Spencer, and Beth Hall. A+.

    NEVER have I seen a scripted comedy that KILLS off a primary character...or prays...or goes to AA meetings. This series is a JOY of both love and pain. Nothing else touches it.

    The second season of Mom seems to improve it all: Jokes, charm, originality, and above all it's not anymore predictable. The acting still being excellent from its both stars Anna Faris and Allison Janney. All combined to create a most hilarious and clever second season.

    Anna Faris and Allison Janney (and the whole cast) are terrific. The show is intermittently funny, painful, sweet, and a bit sad as it tries to deal with messed up family relationships and people who have screwed up their own lives. Well done!

    MOM is funny, and smart, and sweet at times and Janney and Anna Faris work very well together. The whole cast is good. One of the 1/2 hr comedies on TV.
