Critics Consensus

Succession returns in darkly funny form, with sharp writing, exceptional performances, and a surprising new level of sympathy for some of television's least likable characters.

Critic Reviews for Succession Season 2

All Critics (57) | Top Critics (21)

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

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

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.

There's not enough absorbency in a tissue factory to mop up the verbal effluent when the warring siblings and their irascible patriarch get together to talk business.

Aug 15, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

It should be said that Succession isn't for the faint-hearted. Foul-mouthed insults flew thick and fast, while several scenes would have been pretty impenetrable to new viewers.

Aug 13, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | 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.

Aug 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Succession, the best of the lot, is a tightly wound spring of a show, the kind of addictive TV drama that rewards second and third viewings.

Oct 14, 2019 | Full Review…

The performances are so compelling it is hard to look away, but the effect is like watching a car crash you are somehow also involved in.

Sep 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Old, entitled babies make for brilliant comedy.

Sep 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Succession is often angled as an upper-crust drama, but in fact... it succeeds as a dark comedy, a satire full of despicable characters that are inexplicably delightful to watch.

Sep 10, 2019 | Full Review…

Much better than Dynasty or Falcon Crest; better written, better interpreted, more complex and bold, but without losing that air of soap opera with very bad guys and traitors and ambitious in general. [Full Review in Spanish]

Sep 9, 2019 | Full Review…

Between...larger discussions of the malleability of values in the face of extravagant wealth, "Tern Haven" finds plenty of ways to put the Roys through the psychological wringer.

    One of the best shows on TV. Funny, witty and smart. Even the theme song is amazing with different memorable arrangements.

    Best show in years!

    Stunning ensemble cast makes you feel as if you've got a front row seat to the year's best Broadway play.

    Best show on TV since Sopranos !

    The writing and acting in this show are second to none. Macfayden, Snook and the guy who plays Greg (can't remember his name!) are a few standouts for me. I honestly can't remember the last time a show was this consistently engaging. It was criminally underrepresented at the emmys. Hopefully that changes for this season

    I didn't believe this show could become more nerve racking but the 2nd season gave me a full on panic attack. Jesus Christ.

    This show is so evil it is brilliant. These four adult children are being manipulated by an evil baron of a father. And in an every man for himself world, this is spellbinding.

    This show is simply fantastic! You will find yourself rewatching episodes to try and catch all the angles. Its a must see!
  • Sep 30, 2019
    I love this show, the acting is great, the cast meld well. Its funny and having a go and great entertainment. More shows like this would be great. No violence etc. If its not going on I do not know why because it can only get better and there is much bigger story to tell as we know

    Reminds me of the good old days of the Dallas TV series, except that now they get to show all the bad things not allowed back then.
