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.

Critic Reviews for 12 Monkeys Season 3

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, 2020
    Series keeps getting better.
  • Jul 20, 2020
    How does this show continually surpass itself?? Just when you think they're going to run out of steam and story, they introduce even more lore and deeper meanings. Things that you can't believe haven't been done before will be introduced. This show doesn't stop. These characters will become family. Such a well written and executed show!
  • Jul 20, 2020
    One of the best thing 12 Monkeys does is raise the stakes. The first season had a plague that killed 7 billion. The second had a plot involving the very fabric of spacetime that affected, well, everything. The third season is able to successfully raise those stakes, however they do so not with a "bigger bodycount" but rather by narrowing the focus on the lead characters, what they mean to each other, and what we are willing to do for family. The storytelling in this series is excellent, but it only improves each season. The smallest moments or lines of seemingly throwaway dialogue can actually give away the game, if you know what you are looking for. This meticulous detail not only makes this show fantastic to watch once, it makes it get better and better on successive rewatches.
  • Jun 22, 2020
    Characters flip between copious murder and moralizing but the show has really found its feet and gives us all the mind-bending convoluted adventuring we want from a time travel show. It's a lot of fun.
  • Sep 04, 2019
    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.
  • Dec 05, 2018
    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
