Tv Season Info

The third season of the comedy series brings back Ilana (Ilana Glazer) and Abbi (Abbi Jacobson) and the weird world they live in. This time, however, the show focuses more on their personal and professional lives, rather than their antics. While dealing with Tinder, unexpected parties, involuntary thefts, accidental injuries and a "Mrs. Doubtfire"-inspired situation, the two ladies also have to deal with Ilana losing her job, Abbi dating Trey (Paul W. Downs) and lying to Ilana about it, Lincoln (Hannibal Buress) finding a new girlfriend, and the inevitable strain that all this puts on Abbi and Ilana's friendship. However, the bond they share is strong, and will not be broken so easily. Season 3 also brings in a host of big guest stars, such as Alan Alda, Hillary Clinton, Whoopi Goldberg, Tony Danza and Vanessa Williams.

Critic Reviews for Broad City Season 3

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (12)

At its best, Broad City showcases the unique comic skills of both stars... And this season, Broad City is at its best.

Feb 17, 2016 | Full Review…

Like a packed piñata of absurdity, each episode rains unforeseen treats, from physical pranks to existential banter to all manner of sexual exuberance. It's all smartly visualized around town and briskly stitched together.

Feb 17, 2016 | Rating: A | Full Review…

Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer's Comedy Central series enters its third season as on point as ever, with a few early episodes that are bound to become classics.

Feb 17, 2016 | Rating: A | Full Review…

The dramatic stakes are as gloriously low as ever in the third season of Broad City. Perhaps that's why it remains one of the very finest of the current generation of anti-aspirational sitcoms.

Jul 30, 2019 | Full Review…

In Broad City's third season, the show's duo continues to run up against caricatures of class and privilege.

Feb 16, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Broad City is rightly discussed as being one of the definitive comedies in the current generation of television. "Two Chainz" is just another example of why it belongs in that discussion, and won't be leaving anytime soon.

Feb 11, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

The highlight of this season for me was Abbi trying out Tinder. Oh my god was this episode amazing. I laughed for days.

Aug 21, 2018 | Full Review…

We need Broad City. Because on top of making us cackle on a weekly basis, it gives TV a shot in the arm.

Jul 31, 2018 | Full Review…

Broad City continues to capture the absurdity and humor of life for 20-somethings in New York, all without the pretentiousness of most shows set in the eccentric city.

Jun 18, 2018 | Full Review…

What has always made Broad City both appealing and potentially alienating is its commitment to mocking the lives of (mostly white, young) New Yorkers. That doesn't change in season three.

Feb 17, 2016 | Full Review…

Uproarious, tear-inducing, side-splitting, and tell-everyone-you-love-and-hate-immediately good, Broad City is the funniest show on TV right now.

Feb 14, 2016 | Rating: 10/10 | Full Review…

Broad City is back to an incredibly strong start.

Audience Reviews for Broad City: Season 3

  • Sep 12, 2017
    Best and funniest TV show I have ever seen. The characters and stories are absolutely awesome.
  • Jul 26, 2016
    The show that makes Millennials fall in love with New York.
  • Jun 23, 2016
    About as solid and good as the first two seasons. The first four episodes aren't very funny, but then at Episode 5, it picks up till the end. They are honestly some of the best episodes of the series! There's also some great cameos!
  • Apr 20, 2016
    These two navigating New York City isn't solving world problems, but doesn't shy away from important world issues. It feels like a show in 2016 and it is refreshing.
  • Apr 05, 2016
    completely preposterous. like workaholics with the foundation of a job to fall back on. there is no continuity, only absurdism. every episode tries so desperately hard to be "new york" and, in reality, nothing about this is based on the "struggles of NYC life". This show was a struggle at first and now it is a complete chore. Avoid at all costs.
  • Mar 02, 2016
    Bliss. Pure bliss. This show makes me incredibly happy, and I will cherish that forever.
  • Jan 26, 2016
    In its 3rd season, it's become set in stone that this is my #1 favorite comedy show. Broad City presents comedic brilliance like I've never seen before. Ilana and Abbi's humor is almost undefinable. I'm glad they're getting the praise that they are because these two weird ladies are definitely going to accomplish big things in the comedy world after this show. The future of Ilana and Abbi is bright and I couldn't be happier
