Tv Season Info

Season 3 of the sci-fi drama opens with everyone still separated across time and trying to find their way back to each other. Among a series of time travels, erased timelines, bad omens and self-fulfilling prophecies, the season centers on the relationships between some characters: Cole (Aaron Stanford) and Cassie (Amanda Schull) try to deal with the idea of the Witness being their child, while protecting him from Magdalena (Hannah Eaddingham), the leader of the group charged with guarding the witness. As if this wasn't enough, the whole group works together, at different times, to fight the Four Horsemen.

Torn. That's the word to describe after watching [the finale].

Feb 1, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

12 Monkeys isn't your average time-travel show, so it's no surprise that Season 3 of the Syfy series isn't getting an average premiere.

Feb 1, 2019 | Full Review…

12 Monkeys is never going to be the biggest hit in the world. But Syfy has figured out a unique way to broadcast this next season that...serves the fans, and the structure of the show at the same time.

Feb 1, 2019 | Full Review…

Smart, boundlessly creative and with impressive production values, Syfy's sleeper hit 12 Monkeys has finally become must-watch TV.

Jan 31, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

You think you know The Witness, and then 12 Monkeys completely turns everything on its head during [the] Season 3 finale.

Jan 31, 2019 | Full Review…

[The creators had] to juggle time-travel paradoxes, the post-apocalypse and the nefarious organization behind it all [and] make believers out of skeptical fans of the Terry Gilliam cult classic that inspired the sci-fi series, mostly succeeding.

Jan 31, 2019 | Full Review…

Season 3 of 12 Monkeys did the impossible: it improved upon its already stellar record of blowing our minds and delivering near-perfect episodes.

May 23, 2017 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Season 3 of 12 Monkeys is indeed binge-worthy, delivering sci-fi thrills, surprising plot twists, and hours of epic storytelling that cement the show as the jewel in Syfy's crown.

May 23, 2017 | Rating: 9.5/10 | Full Review…

While 12 Monkeys has always been a fantastic show, the third season, which airs in its entirety this weekend on Syfy, ups the ante in every possible way.

May 19, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

In season three, 12 Monkeys is a show out to stun, hurt and elate. It's a show ready to win, and win it does.

Audience Reviews for 12 Monkeys: Season 3

  • Aug 07, 2017
    Once again 12 Monkeys delivers an extraordinarily mind-bending season full of shocking twists. Season 3 picks up with Cole searching for Titan, where Cassie is being held captive, and after finding her he learns that she has given birth to their son; leading them to go rogue in order to search through time to find him and stop him from becoming The Witness. James Callis joins the cast as a reoccurring character and delivers and excellent performance. And, Emily Hampshire continues to steal the show with some of the most bizarre and funny scenes of the entire series. The writing is also quite impressive, crafting an extremely elaborate and compelling story in just 10 episodes (as opposed to its usual 13). Incredibly powerful, Season 3 of 12 Monkeys takes its characters (and audience) on a remarkable journey.

    100% really? season 3 was terrible.. felt like a comedy sitcom with elements of a thriller... extremely dumbed down scify for the general public this is as bad as heroes season 4
  • Aug 06, 2019
    Kept going strong with a great plot, great twists, and engaging characters.
  • Dec 29, 2018
    I'm sure there's room for improvement somewhere, but the season follows the story and sets up twists and turns... it's honestly as enjoyable as the rest of the series--which is to say, it is very, very enjoyable.

    Loved that show. My wife and I enjoyed it.
  • Mar 04, 2018
    amazing series, i hope there will be more than 4 seasons
  • Feb 06, 2018
    I loved this show. They did there own thing and made it great. But in season 3 the plot is kinda convoluted and characters starts acting in impractical ways, "like in a horror movie were the girl runs upstairs and hide in the attic instead of running out the front door" dumb. I only watched half the season, maybe it'll get better in the second half but I don't plan to watch it any time soon

    Love this show, keeps you on your toes, always with twists and new concepts.
  • Jul 12, 2017
    It's official, we're looking at the best science-fiction show on television right now.
  • Jun 05, 2017
    One of the best shows on TV and this may have been its best season... Episode 9 is incredible.
