The season where everything is shiny and new, from Daisy's name to Coulson's hand to Fitz's reemergence of courage.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. at this point is just focused on being as entertaining as possible, and it worked for me.

Mar 6, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

The ending cliffhanger ... was spectacular.

Nov 27, 2017 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

There's an entire galaxy of threats out there, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has never been better equipped to explore it.

Sep 30, 2015 | Full Review…

Overall a pretty solid season opener: a lot of subtle recapping for those who don't remember last season, and just enough details to whet our whistles for the upcoming season.

Aug 22, 2018 | Full Review…

In the end, Season Three has definitely proven to be this show's strongest thus far.

Jul 17, 2018 | Full Review…

As usual, Agents of SHIELD hit us with a number of mysteries that hopefully will be answered sooner rather than later.

Jul 17, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The progress [Jemma and Fitz] have made throughout the show, but limited to just Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3 is astonishing.

Jun 29, 2018 | Rating: 4.8/5 | Full Review…

Given her new abilities and her new life, it's understandable that Skye would want to embrace a new identity.

Jun 21, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Season 3 was spectacular by most metrics, from a series growing by leaps and bounds each year, but there are definitely a few heights beyond outer space it could stand to reach.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Marvel's Agents of SHIELD kicked off their third season with a bang in tonight's great opener Laws of Nature.

Sep 30, 2015 | Full Review…

In addition to being a thrilling experience that's truly laying every last card on the table, the new season of S.H.I.E.L.D. also has the largest amount of heart seen from the show to date.

Audience Reviews for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 3

  • Mar 19, 2021
    even for network TV the plotlines are laughable. the arc with Ward is the most ridiculous in television history
  • Feb 04, 2021
    This season is an absolute blast. From removing some of my least favourite characters (Hunter, Bobbi, Lincoln) in a meaningful way, to having an ultrapowerful enemy, these 22 episodes are great. While there are some episodes that seem kind of lacking (Watchdogs, Bouncing Back, Inside Man) despite sometimes introducing concepts that are very important. Ward is finally removed from the series, after a run full of character shifts, while making you, in a way, mourn for this character. Fitzsimmons fans may hate "4722 Hours", but will be rewarded in "The Team." Hive acts as a great enemy, and even moreso does a swayed Daisy. The finale is second only to "The End" and is worth the watch. I highly advise this show!
  • Jan 06, 2021
    This is easily one of the best seasons. I loved the storyline, having the Secret Warriors was incredible, and Lincoln REALLY got to develop. The monolith storyline was very interesting and Hive was the best villain in the entire series in my opinion.
  • Dec 03, 2020
    another great season of agents of SHIELD with two very upsetting moments, a fantastic end to the character of Ward and thrilling action.
  • Aug 08, 2020
    Just wow this tv series is cool
  • Jul 24, 2020
    Some elements are starting to work better than others, but the season is still strong thanks to its great cast.
  • Jun 22, 2020
    The series gets better and better, picking up more steam with each offering. By this time we are well familiar with the characters while the tale and plotlines continue to evolve!
  • Jun 09, 2020
    This season was incredible! A lot darker, but even better than the second season. The acting and dialogue issues are all but eliminated. It is obvious that the actors have relaxed into their roles, and the writers have mastered both the stories and the twists--this show continues to surprise me and take me off guard at the least expected moment. Best season yet!
  • Apr 05, 2020
    Aunque tiene una temática inesperada, el manejo de la serie y los personajes es muy consistente.
  • Mar 09, 2020
    Are you a good season do you like the bad guy-but overall I really really liked
