True Blood: Season 2 (2009)



Critic Consensus: True Blood's second season is still mostly content with delivering pulpy escapism. but it's well acted, addictive, and packs a stronger and more focused punch than the first.

Critic Reviews for True Blood Season 2

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (13)

Silly, gross, soapy, mysterious, intriguing, exotic, erotic True Blood is fun. Even more fun this season.

As good as Paquin and company play it, this is another quality pay-cable show that does have a secret handshake. Or bite.

"True Blood" is truly terrific.

Jun 14, 2009 | Full Review…

Search me, but True Blood brings style, brio and some fiendish frissons to the old blood-sucker clichés.

Jul 18, 2018 | Full Review…

The Season Two premiere, though, and previews of the season to come provide hope that Ball has found his stride and that, hopefully, it can stand on its own and not as part of the latest vampire cultural craze.

Jun 15, 2018 | Full Review…

True Blood will never be confused with the high-quality projects HBO has staked its reputation and brand on, but it can be an entertaining pop/pulp thriller with a fair amount of comedy sprinkled in.

Jun 14, 2009 | Full Review…

Sly and beguiling, it offers up desperate souls and sweaty bodies, hungry vampires and fearful humans.

Jun 14, 2009 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Ball has brushed up on his Buffy reruns, opening up the show's universe to far more devilish creatures and ideas, and it seems the further he steps away from the vamps, the closer he gets to the beating heart of the human.

Jun 14, 2009 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Addictively watchable, not so much a guilty pleasure as a binge food. Cable catnip, in other words.

Jun 14, 2009 | Full Review…

I'm happy to report that this season, there's More Blood! More Torture! More Killing! and More Intrigue! than last season.

Audience Reviews for True Blood: Season 2

Season two took place mainly in the vicinity of a vampire hate group called the fellowship of the sun, Sookie and Bill are tasked to find a kidnapped vampire. At the same time, Bon Temps is threatened by a mysterious woman who made the folks become sex crazed. Season Two expanded the series by establishing some comedic elements and characters. Overall much stronger than first season and was able to have a better focus on the plot.
