Treme: Season 2 (2011)




Critic Consensus: Ambitious, dense, and terrifically acted, Treme deepens in its second season while retaining the regional flavor that made it so intriguing to begin with.

Tv Season Info

Season 2 of David Simon's New Orleans drama opens in November 2006, 14 months after Hurricane Katrina, but the city's ongoing recovery is hampered by an uptick in crime, which gives police lieutenant Terry Colson (David Morse) and the department all they can handle.

Critic Reviews for Treme: Season 2

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (8)

TV Guide

Treme is a many-splendored triumph of slow-cooked storytelling and hot, humid music.
