Critic Reviews for Riverdale: Season 2

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3)

This show is as good as TV melodrama gets, achieves maximum bang for it buck in delivering that melodrama without betraying the characters, and also it looks great. Riverdale is no joke.

Top Critic

Riverdale uses popular culture to explicate, and magnify, its themes and preoccupations, only through an expressly feminine perspective.

December 12, 2017 | Full Review…

But I fear its concern with crime and punishment, with the guilt that always seems to accompany sin, has made it so grave, in form as in function, that saving it from itself demands a super-heroic effort of its own.

Riverdale is a pitch-perfect teen drama.

October 12, 2017 | Full Review…

The narrative is still unbalanced, with hormones once again taking over as melodrama masquerades as intrigue. It was everything we've come to expect from Riverdale.

In its second season, Riverdale again establishes a strong central mystery, but the man in the black hood is quite different and already much more violent.
