Worst Roommate Ever returns with 4 more episodes depicting some of (yep, you guessed it) the worst roommates ever. After the success of season 1, this follow-up does not disappoint as the case are just as shocking and poignant this time around too.

Whether it be a possessive woman desperate to kill and raise her best friend’s child, to a series of increasingly bad “accidents” concocted by an unstable woman, the episodes follow a familiar format and it works in the show’s favour.

Each of the four episodes introduce the main victim, with interviews featuring their nearest and dearest working to flesh out more of their lives and how they came to be mixed up with these roommates from hell. From here, the episode takes on a darker turn, as we dive into the nightmarish ordeals each of these men and women had to endure.

All of this takes place across pacey 50 minute episodes, and the visual design of the show remains on-point and very similar to season 1, with a mix of animated re-enactments, archival photos, videos and talking head interviews.

Much like season 1, the musical score and the stings that chime in during the most dramatic reveals are a bit overbearing but it’s a minor gripe in what’s otherwise a gripping series.

The cases chosen, and the anthology format, serves the show well and the fact we only get 4 episodes each season is enough to make for a satisfying binge and an easy series to get sucked into. You’ll definitely be left wanting more when the final credits roll!

Tonally, the series continues that idea of mistrust and the quote that “you never really know someone until you live with them” is incredibly prevalent here. Of course, Worst Roommate Ever takes that concept to the absolute extreme, bringing with it a deadly cocktail of shock and danger that’ll keep you glued to the screen.

If you were a fan of the first season, there’s bound to be lots to sink your teeth into here as well. The show picks up the baton left from season 1 and absolutely runs with it, delivering another must-watch slice of true crime shocks.
