Boss Baby: Back in the Crib season 2 review: Stakes get higher in this heartwarming sequel

Boss Baby: Back in the Crib returns for its season 2 with Ted and Tina embarking on many new adventures while facing several challenges and threats that a new enemy poses.


Tina and Ted come up with a new scrappy startup and spend the entirety of the second season fighting over what the name of their Untitled Templeton Project should be.

The Luxes with their Baby Corp and a new enemy in Crispin Biscuits pose plenty of threats and challenges but the Templetons manage to overcome them all one by one.

The final battle with Crispin ends up in his defeat but also exposes Boss Baby’s real identity. Meanwhile, a new crisis emerges and to thwart it and get rid of his charges, Ted is helped by Tina, Baby Corp, his friends, family, and many other babies.

Carol initially wishes to have Tina retire but at the end realizes her errors and lets her make that decision by herself. Meanwhile, Ted gets all his charges dropped as Bradley and the enemies get arrested.


JP Karliak as Boss Baby and Mary Faber as Tina are just as great as ever, bringing the range and energy the fans have come to expect from their performances.

Nicole Byer has brief moments as Nannycam No Filter CEO Baby but names most of her time as the energetic villain who gets one-upped by the season’s big baddie — Crispin Biscuits.

Talking about the big baddie, Luke Millington-Drake delivers a truly menacing performance as the eerily smooth and confident mastermind Crispin Biscuits, managing to effectively bring in a sinsiter energy into the role without going to any overt lengths or doing anything caricature-ish.

The rest of the supporting cast is filled with great performances all of which add significantly to the chaos and charm of the Boss Baby universe.


Boss Baby: Back in the Crib season 2 has a lot of heart at times and along with the adorable faces and voices that populated the show, the heartwarming stories and lessons make for a great binge experience with family.

There are many fun moments during the Templetons’ adventures and misadventures and the world-building is really comprehensive this season.

Season 2 greatly benefits from a vicious villain who poses threats that have actual, significant stakes and even though the good guys win the battles, Crispin Biscuits emerges as one of the best parts in this installment.


With a total of sixteen episodes, there’s a lot here that could easily have been divided into two cours, as binging the whole thing in one-sitting might prove to be a bit of a chore.

Crispin Biscuits deserves a better ending as he serves as one of the better villains with a mysterious past and sinsiter motivations that make him all the more compelling, which is why the state he ends up in is a bit of a letdown if that’s all there is to his character.

The story that follows once Crispin is done for comes across as a bit hastily paced and crammed up.


Boss Baby: Back in the Crib season 2 presents a series of stories and adventures that all feel refreshing as stakes are increased with the arrival of formidable enemies and tricky developments. Furthermore, at the core of the season is a story of family, friendship, and love, which imbibes the narrative with a lot of heart.
