Critic Reviews for The Returned Season 2

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (12)

It's all very complicated, but at the same time easy to follow and terribly mesmerizing and haunting.

The show continues to provide a unique narrative experience that propels viewers to think things through, even if they still don't add up.

It can be challenging, but The Returned is a remarkably precise program.

It also feels as if Gobert and company are pawing around in the dark, looking for a way to extend The Returned and not coming up with anything other than to further puzzle the viewer.

Oct 18, 2017 | Full Review…

It's beautiful and mysterious and sad and plays its game close to its chest - a series to get lost in, if you can stand the chills, and the heat, and don't mind reading subtitles (if you don't speak French).

Nov 2, 2015 | Full Review…

The Returned-if it is over-created two phenomenal seasons of emotionally impactful, fascinating and slow-building suspense that paid off beautifully in its final episode.

Oct 18, 2017 | Rating: 9.5/10 | Full Review…

The achievement of The Returned is that it creates its frights chiefly from an atmosphere of the quietly uncanny.

Nov 2, 2015 | Full Review…

Though The Returned's new season isn't as instantly engaging and mesmerizing as its first, it has found ways to still ground its story in the realm of heightened reality, making it that much more frightening.

Oct 18, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This is intelligent, rewarding fantasy drama of a kind that is all-too uncommon on TV, and we're glad to have it back for what is most likely its swansong.

Jan 13, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It takes a lot to creep out this longtime horror fan, but the haunting ambiguity of The Returned ... has a way of getting under one's skin in a way that more overt thrillers rarely accomplish.

Oct 18, 2017 | Full Review…

A large part of what makes The Returned so compelling is that it unfolds like fairytales used to before they were Disney-fied, imagining what might really happen if we were granted our deepest wish.

Oct 18, 2017 | Full Review…

The thing about this show is that the mystery is so existential and ever-present that the feeling of "not knowing" becomes pure atmosphere. And that's appealing.
