Critic Consensus: Shallow and messy, but not in a fun way, The Politician's second term expands its political horizons but doesn't seem to know what to do with them.

News & Interviews for The Politician: Season 2
The speed at which these seven episodes fly by isn't a credit to efficiency; it's a signal that even those making the show have stopped caring about it.
A dysfunctional and tediously lazy and repetitive follow-up.
The tone is different in Season 2, focusing on plot rather than satire, so a bit messier. But Ben Platt is one of the exciting performers of our era, & its still a solid ride.
Broadway darling Platt is still a worthy lead in his second term, one whom you can always depend on for a voracious performance.
I didn't hate it, but I didn't like it, either. It's like most of Ryan Murphy's projects: A lot of insanely fun ingredients (Judith Light! Bette Middler! Zoey Deutch!), but there's always too much sugar and never enough flour and eggs.
