Tv Season Info

The third and final season of Defiance picks up 7 months after the events of the second season. The town is desperate, lacking resource and vulnerable to attack. Joshua Nolan (Grant Bowler) and Irisa Nyira (Stephanie Leonidas) return to help protect the city, however the townsfolk have still not forgiven Irisa for her murderous behaviour in season 2. However with the arrival of a new race, the lusty, hungry Omec, the town has no choice but to accept their help.

Critic Reviews for Defiance: Season 3

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

Defiance opened its third season with a decisive, two-hour swing for the fences that left me slack-jawed and creeped out and mesmerized and even more smitten than I was last summer.

Despite knowing better at this point, I found myself liking the Season 3 premiere of Defiance.

The show is definitely darker and more Mad Max-esque. Or maybe Game of Thrones is a more apt comparison, as winter has clearly come for our heroes. There's certainly a cold, icy aesthetic to the show's presentation this year.

Did anyone besides me notice that there was not a single mention any of the alien beasts that are supposed to be out in the world?

Moving into the gritty post-apocalyptic storytelling isn't a bad move for Defiance.

Defiance has always been a fine enough, albeit perplexing series.
