Critic Reviews for Teen Wolf Season 2

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

In its second season, this show has really learned how to deliver a climax, and that was true more than ever in last night's finale.

Nov 17, 2017 | Full Review…

If only the series had some atmosphere; whether the action unfolds at the school or out in the woods after dark, it has practically none, which is a serious failing for a show that hopes to mint its own mythology.

Jun 4, 2012 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

I don't know what I love more - Issac/Scott pairing up to save everyone or the relationship between the Stilinskis. Why choose?

Nov 17, 2017 | Full Review…

It may be a little corny, but this is Teen Wolf at its best.

Nov 17, 2017 | Full Review…

"Master Plan" was a fitting finale for Season 2. It was terrific, basically. Not as much all-out carnage as I'd expected and/or feared, but that is fine! A relief, even.

Nov 17, 2017 | Full Review…

Unlike a lot of television shows, there wasn't a lot of stuff that didn't work this week, and the show leaves the air temporarily on a high note.

Nov 17, 2017 | Full Review…

Whoa there, Teen Wolf. "The Girl Who Knew Too Much" is making me head to the floor in a fetal position from all of the revelations of the episode.

Sep 19, 2013 | Rating: 4.8/5 | Full Review…

There is quality action, great suspense, plenty of romance with very attractive actors, and interesting plot twists.

Jun 4, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It may lack the emotional depth of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but like that modern classic, Teen Wolf isn't joking about friendship and loyalty in the gnarly face of terror.

Jun 1, 2012 | Full Review…

Like The Vampire Diaries, Teen Wolf successfully blends horror, mystery, romance, teen angst and plenty of reasons for cast members to show some (tasteful) skin.

Jun 1, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

    It's really interesting

    Really love this tv show. Watched this with my teenage daughter originally but I keep going back to it. I love stiles' sarcasm and the friendship of the characters. Keeps me coming back to rewatch over and over again.
  • Feb 09, 2021
    Me pareció buena, tanto esta temporada, como la serie en general, la verdad vale la pena ver.
  • Apr 29, 2020
    This second outing phenomenally continues the story from the first season while expertly mixing new creatures and enemies with teen drama.
  • Feb 18, 2020
    What a badass second season! Everything is improved here. I just love this show.
  • Feb 16, 2020
    A história segue um ritimo muito bom, expandindo pouco o universo e mantendo-se focada em poucos personagens.

    Rating: 9/10. 98/100
  • Aug 25, 2019
    BETTER than season 1. it's more interesting and all the new things inserted in the story are just great
  • Apr 23, 2019
    No way this is a truthfully, positively rated show. These are the most ***unlikeable*** characters of all time. The most desperate writing means each episode is a ramrod with the most obvious and lazy tactics in order to achieve whatever they want as the result. Forget about trump, how do we impeach these writers?
  • Jan 06, 2019
    The building of the pack and the introductions to new supernatural speices make this a must watch season on teenwolf. loved it.
