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

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (5)

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…

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

Nov 12, 2018 | 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…

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.

The ending cliffhanger ... was spectacular.

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

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


My problems with the first season of Agents of SHIELD are well documented. As much of an improvement as Season 2 was over it, Season 3 is at least that much better again. Maybe more so.

This was a really good season. It managed to be a great followup to that amazing second season that we got last year and it also managed to get us emotionally enthralled in the entire season all the way through. Once again we find our agents and this time around they are searching for the newly created Inhumans while trying to fend off the threat that is Grant Ward and his newly re-established Hydra. But this season is also about the main characters as we had to say goodbye to a lot of them as the show went along. We said goodbye to Hunter and Morse who left to do their own show (which they won't really do anyway); we said goodbye to Lincoln who sacrificed himself to save the entire world; and last but not least, we said goodbye to a fan-favorite throgh all three seasons Grant Ward, who also bit the dust before being the host of a dangerous Inhuman called Hive. The performances in this season was great and I must say that Brett Dalton really impressed me this time around. It almost feels like he was born to play this character, even though the actor just seems so likeable. All-in-all: a great season with some great moments and some great supporting characters, both the returning and the new ones.

This has the chance to be the best season yet. Really largely abandoning being tied so closely to the films, the show really has stretched its legs. This may show that the largely interconnected MCU is actually fracturing (especially if no mention of TV plot is made in Civil War) but maybe it's for the best?
