Tv Season Info

In Season 3 of "Madam Secretary," Jason's (Evan Roe) computer is hacked leading to the McCord family realizing they may have a stalker. Henry (Tim Daly) looks into Elizabeth's (Téa Leoni) past as a political science professor for answers, while attempting to rescue priceless antiquities from the terrorist organization Hizb-al Shahid and protect an undercover operative within a doomsday cult. Elsewhere, Elizabeth continues her unorthodox approach to being secretary of state and brokers multiple peace deals resulting in her being considered for a Nobel Prize. Meanwhile, Stevie (Wallis Currie-Wood) awaits her college acceptance letters while working as an intern, President Dalton (Keith Carradine) runs for re-election and Russell (Zeljko Ivanek) has a health scare.

Critic Reviews for Madam Secretary Season 3

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (0)

In any case Madam Secretary is an entertaining series, well done, with a powerful production and a functional distribution. [Full Review in Spanish]

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

Thank goodness for the CBS drama, which has picked up The West Wing's mantle of believing in the best parts of American exceptionalism.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

Life doesn't always offer us a happy ending, and Madam Secretary Season 3 Episode 18 didn't either. It's one of the things that makes this entire series so compelling.

Jun 26, 2018 | Rating: 4.7/5 | Full Review…

With the way Election 2016 is going, it's been next to impossible for writers to come up with storylines that stranger than reality. Madam Secretary Season 3 Episode 1 certainly gave it the old college try though.

Audience Reviews for Madam Secretary: Season 3

  • Dec 21, 2018
    My wife and I watch this show together on Netflix and we've thoroughly enjoyed it. While many of the plots seem predictable the cliffhangers are well done. Bess's character is believable and mostly realistic. Her husband Henry is the only character in the series that I have a hard time believing could have a real life counterpart, but even then I enjoy his quips and sidequests. Conrad is the president most of us actually want to lead the country, and Russell is who I picture when I think of the White House chief-of-staff (along with Leo McGarry from the West Wing). If you're looking for a semi-serious, enjoyable, and relate-able show to watch in the evenings this is it.
  • Apr 10, 2017
    Without a doubt my favorite show on TV right now. I would love for foreign relations and family relations to really work this way! Tea Leoni, Tim Daly & the whole cast are terrific.
  • Feb 12, 2017
    Great show, with a great look at american politics with current events being incorporated in the show.
  • Dec 18, 2016
    Great acting, great story lines and although they are not at all even handed on the liberal vs. conservative spectrum (total liberal bias) it's still so well done, intelligent and well acted by an amazing cast that it's a must see on Sunday nights! Love it.
