Critics Of "PEN15 - Season 2"
September 08, 2020 While I appreciate all of the work Konkle is turning in here in Season 2, especially as she plays a young teen caught in the middle of her parents' messy separation, it's clear that Maya's emotional journey is the anchor of PEN15 this season.Read in Source
September 16, 2020 More melancholic in its second season, PEN15 understands that junior high is the start of difficult, confusing, strange years of struggle to understand the world and one's place in it.Read in Source

September 16, 2020 This will presumably always be Erskine and Konkle's showcase - both should be awards contenders - but the second season accentuates casting director Melissa DeLizia's smart work selecting the younger actors.Read in Source

September 16, 2020 PEN15 understands this better than any other shows; how easier our lives would be if we can find the Anna to our Maya. And for that very reason, it's safe to say that our lives will be better with Pen15 in it.Read in Source
September 15, 2020 Pen15 has definitely changed, but in ways that are almost entirely for the better. What was once a gimmick is now a thoroughly excellent and warm show.Read in Source

September 17, 2020 The second season of PEN15 is going to break your heart.Read in Source
September 09, 2020 Disavowing "drama," they live to create more drama, and "PEN15" hilariously draws the viewer right in the awful middle of it. Anyone who can't relate might have been unconscious as a teen.Read in Source
The Daily Beast
September 16, 2020 It's incredibly hard to capture the mindset of that age without coloring experiences with regret or fantasy fulfillment, or filtering them through adulthood's learned lessons. It captures the feelings as they emerged raw.Read in Source
