Tv Season Info

In season 3 of this surrealist comedy from FXX, Josh Greenberg (Jay Baruchel) faces his most difficult dating experience yet—a long-term relationship. In addition to the typical challenges one faces in a new relationship, like navigating each other's preferences and meeting friends and family, Josh and his new girlfriend Lucy (Katie Findlay) also go through a few not so common ones. Will this be the end of Josh's single life or just a detour? Based on a book of short stories by Simon Rich, "Man Seeking Woman" also stars Eric Andre as Josh's best friend Mike and Britt Lower as Josh's successful older sister Liz.

Critic Reviews for Man Seeking Woman Season 3

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (3)

I love that kind of experimentation, even if, at times, the sequences don't altogether work. I also love the way all the cleverness doesn't get in the way of the character development.

Jan 26, 2017 | Full Review…

Amid a sea of baggy shows that don't quite know what they're doing and are taking too long to do it, Man Seeking Woman stands out for its focus and speed.

Aug 28, 2017 | Full Review…

The FXX comedy used to be a good show about dating. Now it's a great show about relationships.

Jan 31, 2017 | Full Review…

The show's basic premise has certainly been done quite a bit, but no one else does it like this.

Jan 19, 2017 | Full Review…

Man Seeking Woman seemed destined to provide an answer for its title sooner or later. Based on what I've seen so far, it's an excellent match.

Jan 19, 2017 | Full Review…

Man Seeking Woman is often at its funniest when sending up the neuroses we've come to associate with romantic attachment and rituals.

Jan 19, 2017 | Full Review…

That balance of tone isn't done better by any other show.

Jan 19, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

It's arguably Man Seeking Woman's most powerful season to date, and one that bodes incredibly well for the clever show's future.

Jan 5, 2017 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Like its characters, the show isn't changing so much as it's moving forward. Man Seeking Woman's hilariously odd sensibilities are still firmly in place. Now there're just more of them to love.

Jan 5, 2017 | Full Review…

Jay Baruchel's done a great job getting fans on Josh's side, though, so I found myself rooting for Lucy even before she'd endured a no-good, horrible day.

Audience Reviews for Man Seeking Woman: Season 3

  • Feb 01, 2018
    While it's a bit upsetting to hear that Man Seeking Woman was cancelled following its third season, this year also thankfully brings the series to a very logical conclusion. While the previous two seasons dealt with dating, this season sets its focus to that of relationships, with Josh finally landing the girl of his dreams, but the insights are possibly even more resounding this year. The scenarios remain as on-point and vibrantly hilarious as ever, and series newcomer Katie Findlay finds herself fitting in very nicely with the show's unique sense of humor and scope. Over the course of three seasons, Man Seeking Woman really said all it needed to about the romantic struggles of millenials, but here's hoping creator Simon Rich will have another series of similar quality premiere sometime in the near future.

    Season 1 & 2 were fantastic and fresh. Season 3 really dropped the ball and lost all the magic it had before. Lucy started off great. Amazing even, but the second she cheated on Josh, she lost anything she had going for her. She turned from angel to despicable and I cant believe the show even keeps her going after what she did.

    An out of the box comedy series!

    What happened to this show? MAN SEEKING WOMAN: SEASON 3 Where is Eric Andre? He wasn't even in the newest episode. So far of the 2 new episodes both have disappointed. Too bad it was one of my favorites.
