News & Interviews for Succession: Season 2
Succession is a series about monstrous rich people that manages to be exhilarating and grim as hell at the same time.
It's almost irresponsible how good it is, but luckily the only people who would actually reenact it are also already boars themselves.
There is enough back-stabbing and secretive planning among the Roys to keep them joyless - and to keep us joyfully entertained - for some time to come.
What makes Succession feel particularly rich and rounded - and very sad - is the depravity, rarely played for laughs, of every moment in which this family touches normal people.
Season 2 is extraordinary. Jesse Armstrong, the show's creator, finds new levels of horror to mine in Succession's autopsy of the ultrarich, but he also finds pathos, which elevates the show even further.
Its family power struggle has echoes of "The Lion in Winter" and "The Godfather," only instead of Peter O'Toole or Marlon Brando, we have Brian Cox as patriarch Logan Roy scheming to hand over his empire.
Succession deftly critiques white feminism as anything but radical.
It's a decent watch, but it uses a familiar formula seen on shows such as Veep or a watered-down The Office.
Season two does not just succeed at expanding the strong foundation that the first season has built meticulously, it also keeps escalating the stakes and tensions as well as the hilarity. Succession has solidified itself as the best TV drama of the year.
Audience Reviews for Succession: Season 2
Dec 01, 2020There are times when the scripts wallow in insult humor, but I can't deny that season two of Succession is absolutely awesome. It's addictive so be prepared to binge.Aldo G Super Reviewer
2d agoIts the best series i have seen so far.The merge of Shakespearean tragedy and modern sitcoms style makes it absolutely enjoy full to watch. This show has elements of both Game of thrones and arrested development. Characters are very unique and incredible almost unbelievably amazing performance by each actor makes characters even more outstanding. Overall i think its the best series and season i have watched and hope it will soon gain the recognition from audience that is well deserved.
Jan 19, 2021Currently, one of the best shows airing. Feels like a guilty pleasure. This ensemble is a treasure trove.
Dec 23, 2020Succession manages to continue it's brilliant performances, writing, and direction as the story gets more intense and high stakes.
Oct 02, 2020Boar on the floor, man.
Sep 23, 2020Its anemic beginning is not very convincing, but in the second season the series is much more flashy, with cold words, and the sarcasm and humiliation are as strong as the feeling of discomfort, great series
Aug 02, 2020Some more of season 1 (X 4 times the magnitude). I like the Idaho/ Davos set up and the big boat at the end was so indulgent. The senate hearing was interesting. The father pushes the kids too much - he is the reason for the family's dysfunctionality. Its also a text book case of sibling competitiveness. Jeremy Strong is superb. Roman is an interesting character and well played. Shiv dominates the screen when she's on it. Rhea's professional capability is nothing in comparison to Marcia's searing depth. I will miss Marcia. Some of the betrayal seems repetitive and the writers will have to think if newer plot twists for this family going ahead.
Jul 18, 2020Attention to detail allows the characters to become even more rotten in their souls. Jeremy Strong's performance as Kendall as he rumbles through the muck of his life is exceptional. The entire case is insanely talented and the writing is without flaw. Still as disgusting as season 1 and still as entertaining.
Jul 08, 2020I find it overrated but Jeremy Strong is very good while Brian Cox is solid, but not outstanding, in the JR Carrington Role.
