Critic Reviews for Bloodline Season 3

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (5)

For those curious if the final season of "Bloodline" is worth it -- the basest function of a review -- I will quickly and succinctly answer: No.

With strong episodes to close out the series, standout performances, and very strong below the line work, the series stuck the landing.

Filmed on location, the Florida Keys act as the perfect backdrop to contrast with the series. The bright blue waters and clear sunny skies try their best to mask the ugly underbelly that is the entire series plot line.

Season three's most glaring failure, perhaps, is its inability to provide catharsis and resolution.

Feb 14, 2018 | Full Review…

There's a palpable uneasiness in the air among the Rayburn clan. Their plotting and scheming is ingrained in their DNA.

Jan 23, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

There was some momentum to start the season, but in the end almost nothing made sense or mattered.

Jan 23, 2018 | Full Review…

Ending in many ways where it started with the added vinegar of more family secrets laid bare and their consequences, the 10-episode end of Bloodline is bittersweet.

Jan 23, 2018 | Full Review…

It is so frustrating to come to the end of its three-season run with so many loose ends and unsatisfying conclusions.

May 29, 2018 | Full Review…

The writers of Bloodline are smart to not get into that gray morality right away, sticking with a tight time frame and taut pacing for the season's first hour.

May 29, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Oh boy. Lots of threads to pull, people!

The series is more than an acting showcase, but what an acting showcase it is.

Jan 23, 2018 | Full Review…

Bloodline has never been easy viewing.... But its characters have always been superbly written and performed, so even when the narrative spills over into fanciful, it's still a compelling series.

Audience Reviews for Bloodline: Season 3

    Season 3 was a disappointment.
  • Jul 29, 2019
    Not as good as Season 1 or 2 but still very watchable, Characters are heavily burdened from the past...
  • May 19, 2019
    what a fantastic season 1. and then the idiots kill off danny, the only real hook in the series. actually, the whole thing screamed for a few seasons with danny as center of it all, then bring an unbelievable twist. nope. game over.

    Season three is muddled due to the sudden cancellation by netflix and the need to wrap up storylines. You see the breakdown of Chandler's character, and Cardellini's story disappoints and she is essentially absent. Sissy Spacek is finally utilized correctly and shines in an otherwise dreary season.

    Loves the first season - do yourself a favor, stop there.
  • Jan 30, 2018
    The end is promised but not really delivered. This is a superb season that is both gripping and thrilling at times. The arc of the show becomes John Rayburn who's mistakes in the past and present haunt him. Again a very well acted, written and directed show. It really does deserve a bigger audience. A binge worthy show.

    Really fell apart. The ending was an incoherent and unsatisfying mess.
  • Sep 30, 2017
    A final season overly rushed to the point of pointlessness, confusion and unsatisfaction.

    PROS: Acting is always solid (John Leguizamo didn't get enough credit for his performance as Ozzy). Key West setting is fantastic. The show did a decent job of wrapping up a complex story. CONS: I was happy to be done with this show. I like dark stuff, but this was the exact opposite of feel good entertainment. The hallucinations episode was an enormous waste of time. Seriously, it was terrible. Ozzy's death was anti-climatic. Lastly, Kevin once again proves why he and Deb from "Dexter" are the two most unlikable characters in TV history.
  • Aug 23, 2017
    One of the worst endings to a show that I have seen. The show was cut short and that was the fault of Netflix, but because of this the short lacks logic and sense to this point. Very anti-climactic and poorly executed.
