    It is difficult to comment without knowing the context.
    What season are you talking about?
    Lacks/loses have different meanings.

    I'd say 'The second season lacks the originality of the first'.

    Re: The second season lacks/loses the originality the first season possesses.

    Assuming there is/was a third season, I would put the whole sentence in the past tense.

    The second season lacked the originality the first season possessed.

    The second season lacks originality compared to the first.

    The original sentence seems to imply that 'originality' can be shared.
