Succession: Season 2 (2019)


Season 2

Critics Consensus

Succession returns in darkly funny form, with sharp writing, exceptional performances, and a surprising new level of sympathy for some of television's least likable characters.

Critic Reviews for Succession Season 2

All Critics (66) | Top Critics (24)

Succession is a series about monstrous rich people that manages to be exhilarating and grim as hell at the same time.

Aug 30, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Aug 22, 2019 | Full Review…

There are moments - usually when the camera jerks towards Kendall's vacant, flummoxed face - when I believe that Succession is just about the best thing I've ever seen on television.

Aug 13, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Aug 12, 2019 | Full Review…

It's almost irresponsible how good it is, but luckily the only people who would actually reenact it are also already boars themselves.

The series has given us 10 of the best hours we have lived in the last 10 weeks. To witness the riches misery is engaging. How wonderful it is to hate the Roy's. [Full Review in Spanish]

Oct 22, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Dec 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Jesse Armstrong's sharp capitalist satire is like a drug

Dec 16, 2019 | Full Review…

It's in the way these characters are written, not with snappy dialogue or winking self-awareness, but with all the inelegance and uncertainty of real people.

Dec 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Effortlessly shifts between a serious family drama to a farcical exploration of power and wealth.

Oct 23, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a decent watch, but it uses a familiar formula seen on shows such as Veep or a watered-down The Office.

Audience Reviews for Succession: Season 2

  • 4d ago
    Brilliant new season! It's a guilty pleasure to watch people/family tear each other apart for "seemingly" more money & power where in fact all characters are actually using the business world to channel their personal issues generated by a dysfunctional family that has yet to be capable of developing decent human ties, express real feelings, show some appreciation and loyalty, ...etc.

    Succession is the new obsession. The writing,direction,cinematography and acting is of the highest standards. Easily the best TV show of the year 2019. Hell excited for season 3
  • Jan 27, 2020
    Best thing that I watched in 2019 - killer characters, great story arcs and luxurious visuals every second of every episode.
  • Jan 19, 2020
    Although slow at times and sometimes manipulative, this manages to sustain interest, but I'm not sure for how long. The characters are universally despicable, and without somebody to root for, it's a chore to watch. At the same time, it's a fair assessment of so much that's wrong in our society.
  • Jan 13, 2020
    The best TV since Breaking Bad.
  • Jan 11, 2020
    Por mas que la entiendo como una sátira a las familias de poder dueñas de multinacionales, resulta muy sonsa, los personajes no pasan de ser parodias mal hechas de los reales imbéciles que han gobernado nuestras sociedades del tipo Bush Jr., o Trump, o Andrés Pastrana, en el caso local. La historia es predecible y se pone desesperante por la falta de acción, la temporada, de 10 horas, se podría resumir muy bien en 2 0 3 horas a lo más.

    Incredible performances by a cast that I have not seen often. A mustsee
  • Jan 04, 2020
    Logra superar a la primera temporada
  • Dec 30, 2019
    This show is so underwhelming
  • Dec 30, 2019
    Perfection. I have watched every episode at least twice. And could listen to the music all day. Then I like to talk about watching it. And read what others have to say about it. I'm obsessed with how good it is. I feel like I've joined a cult.
