Critic Reviews for Veronica Mars: Season 2

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5)

Season 2 of "Veronica Mars" doesn't hold together quite as well as Season 1, but this finale still has its brutality, which remains resonate years later. Poor Beaver. Poor everyone else.

A total whirlwind.

October 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Now that Lilly Kane's murder is solved and it's the start of a new school year at Neptune High, things might seem a little too quiet in this second season of Veronica Mars. Not to worry.

January 23, 2014 | Full Review…

Mixed in with the same witty and cheeky dialogue and characterizations that made the first season so enjoyable, this show continues to be one of the most entertaining things out there.

Veronica Mars blends high school stories with sophisticated style and themes.

Audience Reviews for Veronica Mars: Season 2

Like any good television show, Veronica Mars takes it to a whole new level in Season 2. The series expands and gets richer as the scope opens up to explore multiple characters and their journeys. However, the main arc of the season follows a school bus crash that kills several students, and Veronica suspects that she was the intended target. Season 2 juggles a lot of plots, and it succeeds with most of them. There are also a slew of guest stars this season, including Kevin Smith, Joss Whedon, Lucy Lawless, and Michael Cera. Additionally, Charisma Carpenter, Krysten Ritter, and Steve Guttenberg join the cast as recurring characters. With a star as bright as Veronica Mars there is always the chance that it will burn out, but Season 2 shines as strong and as passionately as the first.
