Tv Season Info

Season 3 of the musical comedy opens two weeks after the end of the previous season, when Josh (Vincent Rodriguez III) left Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) at the altar. After the wedding fiasco, Rebecca, Paula (Donna Lynne Champlin), Valencia (Gabrielle Ruiz), and Heather (Vella Lovell) decide to exact their revenge on Josh. This proves to be more difficult than they envisioned when Nathaniel (Scott Michael Foster) takes things too far and almost ruins Josh's reputation, which makes Rebecca second guess herself.

Critic Reviews for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season 3

That Crazy Ex-Girlfriend takes its responsibility to portray recovery so fastidiously is noble. But as this season exemplifies, that honorableness doesn't always translate to narrative satisfaction, especially when coupled with other storytelling deficits

The role of the "crazy ex-girlfriend" might sound like a hollow, anti-feminist stereotype, but the show, co-created by Bloom and Aline Brosh McKenna, makes Rebecca three-dimensional enough to subvert the trope.

For the time being, [Rebecca] still has some folks left in her corner - the real drama comes from seeing how they choose to stick around.

Where almost every other show out there forgets the ladies and makes them props, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend makes women characters complex and transcend any gender-based label.

While I'll miss the endless well of diverse musical numbers and running gags, the network's Netflix pact will make Season 3 a handy re-watch before the fourth and final year.

May 29, 2018 | Full Review…

The crazier the better. That's been the case for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend in its brilliant third season, which has fearlessly whipsawed from manic wackiness to emotional devastation back to sublime romantic-comedy farce without missing a musical beat

Feb 15, 2018 | Full Review…

[Peter Gardner] once again proved his value as one of the show's greatest scene stealers.

Feb 14, 2018 | Full Review…

This whole season has been a gift.

Feb 22, 2018 | Full Review…

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has made a seismic shift in its narrative and a bold and assured declaration that it, like its heroine, truly understands who they are.

Feb 20, 2018 | Rating: 10/10 | Full Review…

Musical-theater geeks probably get the most out of this show, but it's so unusual that I recommend it to everyone I meet. It's primordial showbiz magic.

Audience Reviews for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 3

  • Nov 10, 2018
    Is ANYONE going to mention how the concept is a TOTAL ripoff of LaLa Land? Or is it the reverse? Both projects were in production at the same time, basically. This is a review for the pilot. I almost had to stop it. When she broke out singing that HORRIBLE song about West Covina, I almost stopped it but was so appalled I just had to keep watching just for fun. The casting is ridiculous.; Casting a dumb boring looking guy as her love interest is dumb. The show is contrived. The diction of the song when she is in the bathroom was DIGUSTING, and I never understood the words to the title song. Didn't anyone give them feedback and realize no one can understand wtf she is singing? The songs are just dreadful anyway. The premise is implausible, and I couldn't get past it. Sad that so many people fall for this nonsense. And the boss at her work has an EMBARRASSING scene, crying like an idiot. And the writer stole the Chippewa ancestor line from one of Christopher Guest's movies. Some clever dialogue here and there. But I just can't go on with this.

    Oh geez, the representation of mental health hit too close to home here. The self-Awareness from Season 1 that was missing in Season 2 is back and it worked so well! Brilliant satire. Brilliant writing. I'm so excited for Season 4.
  • Mar 31, 2018
    ALthough this season is far more serious than the two previous, that's what makes it stand out. The engaging story of Rebecca's struggle as she's left to face her problems with her relationships, be it with lovers, friends, or parents is one of the best story arcs this show has had in it's three-year run.
  • Mar 15, 2018
    I never watch series twice, but I loved Season 3 so much, I may watch this twice.
  • Mar 03, 2018
    This third season has been a beautiful thing I hope I always remember. The first two seasons set up the ultimate pay off for this incredibly uplifting emotional story.
  • Feb 17, 2018
    My favourite season so far in terms of plot. Really creative but still believable, funny with likeable characters. Can't wait for the next season honestly.
  • Jan 20, 2018
    I'm loving how just when I think I've got all the characters figured out, they throw me for another loop. And yes, the songs are still hilarious.

    This show gets better every season!
  • Dec 08, 2017
    this series is just so awesome, i love it so much! I love the fact that she is a little overweight, but its never really a subject! also it is a musical tv show but its not lame, just amazing
  • Nov 09, 2017
    Brilliant. Love it! Rebecca has finally gone unhinged, and it's fascinating seeing her go hit rock bottom!
