Critic Reviews for Versailles Season 2

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

[Alexander] Vlahos' performance continues to be a truly outstanding part of the series, as he gives Philippe just the right mix of melancholy and spitfire.

Period dramas take historical facts and run with them, and that is all part of the fun. Versailles does just that, albeit with a little bit of self-importance.

Apr 25, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

There are pleasures to be found among the show's luxuriant surfaces, all marble and gold and velvet, or its radiant cast, or plots that are never taxing.

Mar 24, 2020 | Full Review…

Versailles is a fashion shoot with words added in, and there's nothing worse than that.

    Loved it. The series was incredible drama by itself, but it made my husband and me read about the history to find out what was fact and fiction. The costumes, settings and actors were magnificent.

    The episodes couldn't come fast enough. Great show, truly outstanding cast.Yes, suspend your imagination, no need to quarrel with the accuracy of every single fact, one would be missing the point. Stellar visuals which truly help bring Versailles to life. Do not miss this, francophile or not!

    We see so many shows about English history, it’s interesting to explore our French roots. The Sun King is a fascinating story about a pivotal time in history. The acting, the sets, the costumes and the writing are all excellent!

    I adore this show. After a long wait we are finally getting Season 2 in the US and it's been well worth waiting for. Each episode is inventive, edgy- fantastic period piece. If you have Ovation TV don't miss it!! Season 1 on Netflix if you need to find it there!!
