The series holds a score of 77% on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 26 reviews, with an average rating of 6.61/10. The site's critic consensus states: "By owning its own ridiculousness, 10 Years Later is a fan-pleasing addition to the cult classic series." Metacritic reports a score of 67 out of 100, based on 12 critics.
Reviewing for Vulture, Jen Chaney described the series as "basically eight episodes of unabashed retro-fueled silliness that has no interest in trying to make anything resembling sense as far as of plot or continuity is concerned. [...] I mean that as a compliment." David Sims of The Atlantic criticized the "dialed back" humor and felt that "Ten Years Later will appeal to fans who just want to see everyone get back together, only this time dressed in goofy ’90s outfits."
