Season 2
The Strain

Critics Consensus

The Strain's gory action helps compensate for an unfocused narrative, while the show's political and philosophical subtext add necessary heft for adult viewers.

Audience Reviews for The Strain: Season 2

  • Jul 10, 2020
    The level is lower than the first season, but still have some good points and follow the rithmy.
  • Sep 13, 2018
    Scary and always look forward to next scary episode
  • Feb 14, 2018
    I struggled to get back into this show as the first 3-4 episodes are pretty inconsistent. The recasting of the son for a bad actor did not help and Corey Stoll is really annoying at times. The show does pick up in the 2nd half and by the end i was really entertained. overall another strong season but lacks Del Toro's assured hand this time.

    lost interest. watched 4 episodes (0.3 viewings)
  • Jul 25, 2017
    While character development is still uneven and some subplots are unimportant to the story. The characters are better rounded and more sympathetic. The action is still great and it remains scary.
  • Apr 22, 2017
    Another fantastic season.
  • Jan 28, 2017
    Season 2 of The Strain brings back all the elements that made the first so enjoyable, but still manages to keep the show feeling fresh and exciting. A little more horror, humor and gore also help to improve the show, while we dig deeper into the vampire mythos and the characters that make up this post apocalyptic vampire world.
  • Nov 02, 2016
    Not as good as the first season, especially I didn't like the mom element.
  • Oct 31, 2016
    <@ if (review) { @><@= review @><@ } @>Like this show. I would kill the boy zack. I am a little irritated that there always seems to be a pain in the butt character in every one of these stories that everyone lets live way too long. Just once, why can't the characters just kill "whiny buut-heads" just like "Bang" and then reference movies like this.

    Another great season! Keep bringin' it on!
