Tv Season Info

Season two of this modern fable set in Long Beach, CA centers on likable "Squire" and ex-surfer Sean "Dud" Dudley (Wyatt Russell), whose beloved fraternal order -- the Ancient and Benevolent Order of the Lynx -- is suffering under new rule by an ill-suited leader. Despite his "Knight" and mentor Ernie's (Brent Jennings) lost faith, and his twin sister Liz's (Sonya Cassidy) struggle with their past, Dud believes he is the key to restoring the Lodge to its former grandeur and putting the rightful king on the throne. In addition to Russell, Jennings and Cassidy, this season's cast includes Linda Emond (Connie), Eric Allan Kramer (Scott) and David Pasquesi (Blaise).

Critic Reviews for Lodge 49 Season 2

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (7)

The show is full of sly signs, portents, and odd, incidental details that end up paying out many episodes later.

Lodge 49 is a show that's all over the place and yet feels elegantly and confidently arced, rather than haphazard. It's silly and profound, deep and frivolous.

What comes next is a series of strange and fascinating tableaux which, although I'm happy to let this beautiful show just wash over me, I couldn't resist pausing and rewinding in order to make sense of the iconography.

Somehow the actors and writers throw equal parts of mundane reality into a bowl of bizarre and whipped the combination of reality and fantasy into a cream thick enough to hold up. It feels right and not quite right at the same time.

What a performance by Jennings! What a vision of the splendor in the regular! And Lodge 49 was beautiful - is, darn it, is beautiful!

A country-hopping, plane-transcending hangout with individuals of boundless depth.

For viewers who are tuned to that distinct wavelength, Lodge 49 continues to be a unique gem whose continuation during the age of Peak TV is nothing short of a miracle itself.

Aug 13, 2019 | Full Review…

There is something quiet and nice about a show that is, well, quiet and nice.

Aug 12, 2019 | Rating: 7.8/10 | Full Review…

Lodge 49 has big ambitions - it's a series primarily about why American society feels like it's coming apart at the seams, after all - beneath its easygoing sensibility.

Aug 13, 2019 | Full Review…

We predict Season 2 will have more viewers than Season 1.

Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…

It's in the episode's sense of finality where a wealth of meaning makes this one of the most poignant Lodge 49 episodes yet.

Aug 21, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Lodge 49 is both whimsical and pragmatic, a cacophonous collection of divergent ideologies that through some bewildering alchemy not only works but thrives.

Audience Reviews for Lodge 49: Season 2

    As good as Season 1 is, Season 2 takes it to the next level. A mixture of comedy, buddy road trip, and a dose of drama - this is hard to beat. The season finale is one of the best episodes of TV I've ever had the pleasure to watch.

    Just continues to be the best show on TV. The cast this season really stretched out - the depth of the story, scenes and acting continues to unfold. There's not enough said about the mystical in this show, which is well-represented and more accurately depicted in this show than any other, ever. In all this greatness, it's still hilarious at times—all while being emotionally charged and touching. I cannot say enough good things about Lodge 49, and there's not enough room here to say it all. I love the Lodge.

    Beautiful TV. Elements of Twin Peaks. Watch it!

    A show unlike any other. Mystical yet also, at its core, a show about the working class just trying to get by. A treasure that truly needs to get picked up so the quest can reach its conclusion.

    A brilliant meditation on love, death, friendship and alchemy. And that's just the beginning. If the word SURREAL gives you the willies, consider Lodge 49 your introduction to just how beautiful it can be. Brilliantly written, superbly acted, this is a show where every episode lingers in your consciousness for days on end. Yeah... it's OK. #SaveLodge49!!!

    Loved it! Great acting, and as always love the Long Beach vibe.

    Lodge 49 Season Two has the most enlightening view on modern alchemy and how human relationships have the ability to create Synchronicity, while at the same time bringing huge guffaws from the many comical moments, punny lines and sincerely-goofy plot sproings!

    Awesome. Needs to be saved.
  • Nov 01, 2019
    This season continues in exactly the right fashion, plenty of mysteries and excitement, culminating in the only way this series should. This is television done right.
  • Oct 25, 2019
    Just finished Season 2 and it expanded upon season 1 initial weirdness it's own perfectly quirky fashion. Set up tons for another season that I hope we see. Unfortunately it doesn't seem likely despite high ratings from critics and audience alike, as seen on this site. Hopefully the shows fate can mirror the Lodge and come back from the brink.
