Heroes: Season 3 (2008 - 2009)



Critic Consensus: A promising start nearly redeems Heroes after a haphazard second season -- unfortunately, old habits die hard and it quickly backslides into a muddled mess.

Tv Season Info

The third season of "Heroes" begins with Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia) traveling from the future and attempting to assassinate Nathan Petrelli (Adrian Pasdar). Further adding to the mess wrought by villains is the escape of several evil-doers from the prisons of the Company, many of whom team up with Arthur Petrelli (Robert Forster) at the Pinehearst Company, where he is attempting to create a formula that will give powers to ordinary people.

Critic Reviews for Heroes Season 3

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

When it fails, this show is worse than a muddle; it's a muddle that has already run out of fresh ideas.

Sep 22, 2008 | Full Review…

The first hour of "Heroes" season three is more exciting than most of the 11 hours of "Heroes" season two combined.

Sep 22, 2008 | Full Review…

The first half of season three meandered a bit, but was still fun to watch. The second half reminded me why I started watching the show in the first place and gives a great deal of hope for season four.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

It's all delivered with dynamic style, striking images and inventive special effects.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

"Heroes" is officially the winner of the most god-awful show I've ever continued to watch despite hating it more than a mountain-top sunburn.

Jun 14, 2018 | Full Review…

This was the season where we were promised President Worf and then the show gave us Boring Papa Petrelli instead.

May 11, 2018 | Full Review…

The trouble with Heroes in the past is that it's been so afraid of being black and white that it often ends up dishwater gray. Anyway, at least from what we've seen so far, the "Villains" volume has the potential to change all that

YOU would think a group of people la beled "heroes" would do something heroic once in a while.

Sep 22, 2008 | Full Review…

Without a generous scattering of smart riposte, even matters of life and death that involve hot lava and exposed brains can fall flat.

Sep 22, 2008 | Full Review…

This week's first hour gets the season off to a positive start.

Audience Reviews for Heroes: Season 3


Season 3 started to go downhill as writers were unable to make the plot any more interesting.
