American Vandal Season 2
Netflix

American Vandal took the world by storm last year with its wildly unexpected universal acclaim, and the much-anticipated second season is now available to stream on Netflix. Critics have been going gaga over it already, and with damn good reason.

Netflix smartly kept their advertising campaign for season two incredibly low-key, dropping just a brief, non-specific trailer that established the primary mystery while keeping details to an absolute minimum.

The result is a frequently surprising, expectation-defying follow-up to one of the most fiercely original new shows of 2017.

While season one set an extremely high bar for its successor to clear, the show's creators Dan Perrault and Tony Yacenda once again demonstrate a keen eye for our tech-infused world, the awkwardness of the high school experience and also the documentary form.

If you loved season one, it's hard to imagine you not enjoying the hell out of this ludicrously entertaining and often quite bold slice of dramatic mockumentary madness...
