Critic Reviews for The Exorcist Season 2

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2)

Daniels is a magnetic screen presence, perfectly suited to this character where he is called to show courage, vulnerability and more than a dash of devil-may-care swagger.

Season 2 is a new world, y'all.

... since it has plenty of time and room to keep exploring, it shouldn't lose its ambition altogether.

After a terrific (and terrifying) second season, Fox has left the show's fate hanging.

Dec 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Season two begins similarly, but thanks to Mr. Cho's character and storyline The Exorcist shows promise.

Dec 27, 2017 | Full Review…

By the time all of the season's threads converge, the show is firing on all cylinders.

Dec 17, 2017 | Full Review…

... as Friday's Season 2 premiere reminds us, the devil is in the details.

Oct 19, 2017 | Full Review…

With the episode making virtually no reference to the Rance family of the first season, it truly becomes the story of the exorcists themselves.

Oct 2, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The new season starts things off on the right foot, delivering a show that's much more confident about what it aims to be and how best to use its mix of action, suspense, and horror.

Oct 2, 2017 | Full Review…

While there were some elements that felt familiar, there were threads laid down that could take some interesting and unexpected turns.

Audience Reviews for The Exorcist: Season 2

    Hah, I like that reveal about Father Marcus.
  • Jun 08, 2020
    We need a 3rd season!
  • May 26, 2020
    Just recently discovered the show on Hulu and am just disappointed that we won't get a season 3.
  • Mar 06, 2020
    Just about finished with season 2 on Netflix and have discovered the show has been cancelled. This is not a show I would have thought I would enjoy although the story lines and the acting captured me right from the first episode of season one. This is more than a horror show as it challenges our beliefs, exposes our weaknesses and allows us to discover our strengths. I am hopeful someone will pickup this show as I am interested in the future growth of the characters and new people they meet along the journey.

    By far my favorite show that I've ever watched, season 2 steps up the ante on how supernatural thrillers should be made. It's more than disappointing to know there is no new season in production due to Fox's cancellation, but don't let this stop you from enjoying one of the best tv shows that have ever aired on television. Bravo to the writers, production team, and cast.
