Tv Season Info

The second season of the quirky comedy opens with Jimmy (Chris Geere) and Gretchen (Aya Cash) forced to live together while trying to navigate their relationship. This proves to be a daunting task, especially after Jimmy gets a commission to write a novel and Gretchen starts spiraling down into depression. In the meantime, Lindsay (Kether Donohue) and Paul (Allan McLeod) are dealing with their own marital issues; Paul moves out of their home and tries to start a new life with another woman, while Lindsay can't accept the separation and tries to use the smitten Edgar (Desmin Borges) to her to make her husband jealous. Vernon (Todd Robert Anderson) and Becca (Janet Varney) prove to be great sounding boards for their friends, despite showing signs of immaturity themselves.

Critic Reviews for You're the Worst Season 2

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (17)

It is a masterful comedy about how our actions often say what we cannot.

Dec 28, 2015 | Full Review…

You're the Worst can't really be compared to anything else in its genre because Jimmy and Gretchen's relationship is not what normal people do. But normal is boring. Who needs normal?

Oct 15, 2015 | Full Review…

You're the Worst isn't just drunker, sassier, and funnier than most sitcoms on the air. It takes decades of small-screen orthodoxy and slaps it, gleefully, upside its snooty, puritanical head.

Sep 10, 2015 | Full Review…

By happy coincidence they found each other, and the results are consistently funny, though not always role-model material.

Sep 9, 2015 | Full Review…

With this vicious, clever and loving (yes, loving) instructional berating, "You're the Worst" defines itself by what's made it must-watch TV since it premiered last year: being the best for the worst within us.

Sep 8, 2015 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Should Season 3 continue to explore what family means to Jimmy, Gretchen, the still-adrift Edgar, and the expectant Lindsay, it has the potential to live up to the groundbreaking second season.

Sep 7, 2016 | Full Review…

And with "The Heart Is A Dumb Dumb" (and the extraordinary second season as a whole), You're the Worst offers up the most heartfelt depiction of love and all its complexities I've ever watched.

Mar 9, 2020 | Full Review…

Gretchen's depression is one of the boldest, most successful risks taken by a television show this year, one that's been met with much praise for the way it handles a sobering character arc while remaining one of the sharpest comedies around.

Aug 6, 2018 | Full Review…

The show will make you tear up and laugh at the same time. Occasionally, you'll have some unexpectedly profound life truths thrown at you, just when you aren't looking.

May 24, 2017 | Full Review…

You're the Worst stealthily steals your heart.

Sep 27, 2016 | Full Review…

The show will have to adjust to its leads making strides toward maturity and monogamy, and away from the holistically bad behavior that defined season 1, but You're the Worst is, at least for now, still a riot blessed with an ace cast and strong writing.

Sep 8, 2015 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Everybody knows that moving in with your significant other is merely the first stop on the train to Snores-ville, but you'll be happy to know that's not quite the case for You're the Worst's Jimmy and Gretchen.

Audience Reviews for You're the Worst: Season 2

  • Oct 21, 2018
    Improves on its first season with tighter and funny writing.
  • Dec 20, 2017
    Explored different topics more depth. I like how you actually care about the side character. Relationship still interesting to watch.
  • Sep 08, 2016
    I had gotten to a point where I was hating Gretchen, but Aya nailed it. I hated it because no one likes to be reminded of what depression does to people, but it was so well done I could not stop watching. Then, it all came together wonderfully and it was well worth the watch.
  • Aug 24, 2016
    An even better second season for You're the Worst, that kicks up the writing and episode-count, but it's also surprisingly more tender. Dealing with clinical depression, the latter half of the season goes into dark territory rarely seen in any American rom-com (or even any American drama for that matter), with Aya Cash giving an excellent performance. The laughs still remain bawdy and big though, and there's nary a false-note in the cast or a joke that doesn't work. Possibly television's most sorely under-wached show, and here's hoping the third season will find ways to get even deeper.

    Delightful romcom. Way better than Catastrophe.
  • Jan 25, 2016
    This is a review of the second season premiere as posted on The Qtv Review ( You're the Worst might be my favorite sitcom of all time. The second season premiered on FXX while I was away, moved there after it's first-season run on FX (either because the powers that be had more faith in Married [which I just couldn't stomach beyond it's first episode, so... doubtful] or because they really do want FXX to be a quality channel). So, out of all the DVRed beauties I had waiting for me when I got home, You're the Worst is the one I grabbed first. Drugs, booze, briefs, head wigglies, and former colony burns do, indeed, a good House Party viewing make. This is where we catch up with our favorite terrible couple. They're living together with our favorite actual nice guy where they drive him crazy without any remorse or regrets. If you lived your life as these characters do, you might never learn your home address, you might always secretly eat extra meals, and you might be incredibly insulted at the thought of cell phone family plans. Bitch-slaps in response to a refusal to do butt stuff might also be acceptable. Then there's the following fact of life, which I absolutely had to quote directly: "Sleepy bitches lose their right to use normal people phones. Sleepy bitches only get to use phones made for hookers and drug addicts and irresponsible garbage people." This is writing that makes me happy about television. It's ridiculous without being completely stupid. It's a mustache someone with a job forgot to shave, rather than a mustache someone used a mini-curling iron to twist at the ends. It's an ironic selfie that shows some moron taking their 32nd selfie in a row (because they don't like how their face looked in the first 31) in the background, rather than a 32nd pointless angle of your irrelevant face. Sorry. That feels a bit harsh. Your face may be quite relevant. It's just... I still hate pictures of it. I do. Fuck your selfie. The point is: it's writing that's supposed to insult you, in general. And it does so without insulting your intelligence. It's not #epic or #classic or out there for you to enjoy because #yolo. It's out there because assholes exist and they hate you and sometimes they're funny about it.

  • Dec 10, 2015
    a great season finale! still want my gretchen!
  • Dec 09, 2015
    Not only was this better than Season 1 it made the show and characters much morel likable and really showed the show is a lot more capable of many things than just making us laugh and also contains probably the most realistic depiction of depression i've seen on TV Overall Grade of the Season: A+
