Critic Reviews for The Vampire Diaries: Season 2

Audience Reviews for The Vampire Diaries: Season 2

  • Mar 21, 2022
    The plot, the character development, virtually everything about this season is perfect in how it does everything so elegantly and with such fluidity. It is truly an incredible season of an incredible, my favorite for that matter - tv show!
  • Jan 10, 2022
    Rating: 8/10. 87/100
  • Dec 06, 2021
    This season is even better than the first. With the introduction of Katherine and a little more depth added to the Salvatore brothers, this season takes the crown as the best one in this show with season 3 as a close second. It made me fall in love with the original cast even more, brought likability to Caroline and finally introduced us to Katerina (AKA our queen Katherine).
  • Feb 15, 2021
    Season 2 was just flat out awful.
  • Jan 29, 2021
    Ok, I must admit I'm obsessed with this show! It's amazing and I love it all, but this season was BY FAR my favorite.
  • Aug 15, 2020
    Awesome season ! Enjoy it
  • Jul 29, 2020
    Dobrev shows some real talent playing two fun roles while the rest of the cast remains strong.
  • Jul 02, 2020
    It's a great second season it redeems Damon even more then the last season and gives him more humanity as he befriends some of the people he screwed over. It has great acting and well done CH development and some pretty good actions scenes. This season was also extremely sad with death scenes and fake out deaths scenes another good thing about this season is that it introduces Elijah hopefully he comes back for season 3
  • Apr 16, 2020
    The second season starts off with a complex narrative while also giving characters necessary character development to move the story forward.
  • Jan 06, 2019
    Stefan and Damons old flame returns and wants her triangle back from doppleganger Elena. So many more characters turn supernatural and a curse involving the original vampires must be broken. A must watch for vampire fans.
