Life hits you fast. I remember when Netflix launched The Baby-Sitters Club, refreshing a story that is beloved across many generations. It was a fitting example of why Netflix is in an immeasurable position, being able to lift universes from the ground with little risk. Season 1 was a major success, and undoubtedly a second installment was inevitable.

The second season is a wholesome experience. Following a similar direction and trajectory, The Baby-Sitters Club is a soft reminder of how important our childhood was. How the minor stuff felt majorly important, and the major stuff felt confusing and unknown. The assembled and diverse cast return, with the babysitting business in full effect, but their personal lives taking center stage.

The Baby-Sitters Club season 2 works well with character studies. Rather than a multi-story approach, each chapter takes its sweet time with a lead character taking the reigns of narration and following their young, hazy lives. There’s undoubtedly a yearning for more at eight episodes, but season 2 feels complete by where it leaves the audience. There’s a sense of walking away and feeling satisfied.

Issues ranging from family troubles, first boyfriends, and tragedies, The Baby-Sitters Club brings similar energy to The Gilmore Girls, yet slightly less dramatic and orientated around a family feel. Dialogue takes the middle of scenes rather than action, providing an engaging watch. These young kids provide terrific performances, supporting the fact that they are a well-assembled and well-directed cast. There’s rarely a misstep or a moment that serves a lack of believability due to the delivery of the script.

Surprisingly, Netflix decided to release The Baby-Sitters Club season 2 on a Monday, trusting that children and their families would come together in the evening to watch it. The series has earned a more opportunistic release date, as it deserves the audience that it gets. With season 1 being popular, hopefully, the Monday release does not work against it.

Season 2 is charming and patient, keeping the story grounded.
