Critic Reviews for Scream Season 2

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2)

You could see Scream's 2016-ready plots as an affront to the legacy of a brilliant, subversive, horror franchise, or a necessary part of a distinctive new saga that delves deeper into its characters' backstories than ever.

There was a refreshing dose of confidence present in "I Know What You Did Last Summer" that was largely absent last season.

Aug 29, 2017 | Full Review…

I admit I've not done a lot of thinking about Scream in its downtime... I was thus pleasantly surprised at the giddiness the first few minutes this premiere gave me and at how happy I was to catch up with these kids.

Aug 23, 2019 | Full Review…

With the same self-awareness and use of social networking, Scream keeps it current, interesting and tongue in cheek.

Aug 22, 2019 | Full Review…

I Know What You Did Last Summer was a thrilling hour of this MTV horror series. It's evident that the show is going from strength to strength to deliver the shocks for us this time round and we're in for a very interesting summer.

Aug 22, 2019 | Rating: 4.0/5.0 | Full Review…

Season 2 did as any show must to survive: it improved upon what came before and deepened the series' mythology in meaningful ways.

Aug 22, 2019 | Full Review…

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Scream is at its absolute best when it's subtly aware of itself.

Feb 28, 2019 | Full Review…

If the killer had gotten to every character this season, no one would have cried for them. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 10, 2018 | Full Review…

Scream certainly brought it for the first episode of the season.

Jun 6, 2016 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Though it remains to be seen whether this season will wrap up the mystery of the new killer in a way that's much more thrilling than in season 1, Scream season 2 certainly seems to have avoided many of the tropes of most horror sequels.

May 31, 2016 | Full Review…

All in all, a solid enough premiere, though a lot will depend on how this plays out over the season, obviously.

May 31, 2016 | Full Review…

Sporadically clever and requisitely gory - but still awkward and forced - more than ever, Scream the TV series will work wonders if you can just forget Scream the movie series ever happened.

Audience Reviews for Scream: Season 2

  • Jan 11, 2021
    Doble de diversión, gore sutil y suspenso que no abandona en su anterior temporada, pero la cosa que si me termina de disgustar es el episodio final.
  • Dec 27, 2020
    The quintessential follow up to season one. You thought we were done, but ring, ring, guess who? More gruesome murders continue as the now forever-bonded Lakewood "six," still mentally scarred from their first encounters, is again trimmed down, bit, by bit, –by bit. By this point you are familiar with the now close band of survivors, but do you know the whole story? Do they? Season two comes back as a maturely developed setting, and leaves you gasping for more. And things, are never as they seem, in Murderville. With all that we've been given so far; the biggest question is, where is Season 3, of Lakewood? We know there must be more, and we are waiting.

    Da da da what a violent show

    Oh my why cant I believe this is awesome

    The second season of the scream MTV series, has all the plot points missing from the first season and ultimately in my opinion, this is probably the best season in this TV series.
  • Jul 24, 2020
    The killer, which turned out to be Kieran, had to have the speed of Flash to have pulled out those crimes. And we're not even talking about his hunting skills, considering that he's just in high school.
  • May 21, 2020
    Like the first season / the movies: more parody of original parody idea, crime drama like, characters not necessarily becoming more like-able but becoming more magnified stereotypes of themselves, perhaps a few more interesting kills, and a story that while still acceptable, doesn't really break seriously new ground. Perhaps a surprise or two, but not much. There's some suspect and "red herring" material, although the orgy of evidence makes it easy enough to dismiss. Or does it? Well, it should be pretty close anyway. Our "good girl" finally shows her true colours too, even though she still wraps herself in a cloak of good, old fashioned self righteousness. Call me nuts, but this show already has enough "bad girls" in it. Having one more in it that just so happens to be completely delusional, or that the audience is even led to believe is eventually wrongly self-evaluating into self-depreciating despite her "great internal worth", is more than enough to induce vomiting with zero need of sticking my finger down my throat. She sure AF is no Sidney anyway. As it is, this series will never rise above 2 stars. Now, gimme back my mask....

    I did thoroughly enjoy the first season, I didn't think it was the best but it kept me on the edge of my seat in suspense and wondering who the killer was. The plot twist at the end of the first season was totally unexpected, I had no idea the killer would be Piper and I also didn't think she had a accomplice. Season 2 takes a slightly different focus, we are already familiar with the characters which I think gave the writers more freedom. Season 2 was definitely better than the first season and once again the ending plot twist was definitely unexpected. I started the 3rd season in hopes that it would follow on from the ending to the second season however it turns out to be a different story which is unfortunate, hopefully they bring it back for a final time.

    Sin duda mucho mejor que la primera.
