Critic Reviews for Succession: Season 2

All Critics (62) | Top Critics (24)

Succession is a series about monstrous rich people that manages to be exhilarating and grim as hell at the same time.

August 30, 2019 | Full Review…

It's almost irresponsible how good it is, but luckily the only people who would actually reenact it are also already boars themselves.

August 5, 2019 | Rating: A | Full Review…

There is enough back-stabbing and secretive planning among the Roys to keep them joyless - and to keep us joyfully entertained - for some time to come.

August 22, 2019 | Full Review…

There are moments - usually when the camera jerks towards Kendall's vacant, flummoxed face - when I believe that Succession is just about the best thing I've ever seen on television.

August 13, 2019 | Full Review…

What makes Succession feel particularly rich and rounded - and very sad - is the depravity, rarely played for laughs, of every moment in which this family touches normal people.

Top Critic

Season 2 is extraordinary. Jesse Armstrong, the show's creator, finds new levels of horror to mine in Succession's autopsy of the ultrarich, but he also finds pathos, which elevates the show even further.
