Netflix’s The A List Season 2 starring Lisa Ambalavanar, Ellie Duckles, Savannah Baker, Barnaby Tobias, Benjamin Nugent, Rosie Dwyer, Jack Kane, Max Lohan, Georgina Sadler, Indianna Ryan and Finty Williams is now out. Dan Berlinka and Neil J. Wilkinson have directed the second season.
The A List Season 2 has eight episodes of 25-30 minutes each. The plot for the second season reads – Fact and fiction intertwine as Mia, Dev, Petal, Alex and others attempt to reunite — and re-examine what really happened on Peregrine Island.
After the nightmare these teenagers encountered at Peregrine Island, they all went their separate ways. Mia (Lisa Ambalavanar) is seeking therapy to get over the trauma she experienced on the island. However, Mia’s therapist has convinced her that everything she saw at the island (Dev, Amber, Midge, Petal) was just an imagination. Mia agrees that they all were made up in her mind, and none of these people were real.
While Mia is seeking therapy, Kayleigh (Savannah Baker), Jenna (Eleanor Bennett), Harry (Benjamin Nugent), Alex (Rosie Dwyer), and others are in a quarantine facility. Dr Shaw (Finty Williams) is taking care of these teenagers who are not happy to be locked inside. Midge (Indianna Ryan) is also in the same quarantine facility. Amber (Ellie Duckles) changes Dev’s (Barnaby Tobias) face so that Mia would not recognise him if they ever reunite.
It’s good that The A List Season 2 web series has only eight episodes because the plot is weird, predictable and hardly makes any sense. In season 1, we are shown that Midge and Amber are literally the same people. In season 2, this twist falls flat when the makers show us who the new villain. To be honest, the intention of the villain to terrify these teenagers is childish AF. I also didn’t feel the impact of supernatural elements like it was in season 1. Nothing is shocking or spooky at all.
The A List Season 2 cast has played their part well. However, the weak writing spoils the potential of anything WOW coming out of them. In addition, most of the characters had nothing substantial to offer.
The A List Season 2 Review: Is it worth watching?
Overall, the Netflix series fails our expectation. It seems like the makers made another season because they just wanted to. There’s also a possibility that these episodes were a part of the first season, as not one of them is intriguing. If the villain had a deadlier intention to punish Mia and her friends, it would’ve been a good watch. But the weak characters take away the thrill of watching the series till the end. The last episode ends with Mia having a tense face. It is a hint that we might have season 3 unless the streaming platform plans to cancel the show!
It’s better to skip season 2 because there’s nothing fruitful coming out of it, unless you want to be disappointed.
The A List Season 2 is currently streaming on Netflix.
