Critic Reviews for Pose Season 3

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (7)

Those who found the melodrama a bit over the top in earlier seasons will find no respite in the finale. "Pose" is what it is: A flashy, high-budget, first-of-its-kind, Ryan Murphy-produced soap opera about trans women of color.

May 3, 2021 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Pose goes out on a wave of deserved celebration and an insistence that its characters not just survive, but thrive, continuing the art-as-advocacy messaging that has defined the show from the beginning.

May 2, 2021 | Full Review…

We've cried with them and mourned for them, but the third and final season of Pose gives us reasons to smile for them.

May 3, 2021 | Full Review…

Enough about their harsh realities feels genuine enough for such grandiose fantasies to come off as a necessary indulgence. Enough of what we know about life for transgender men and women transforms whatever the victories they score into fuel.

May 3, 2021 | Full Review…

Though there is tragedy in Pose's third and final season, this narrative of possibility flourishes with glorious and dazzling humanity.

May 3, 2021 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

The time-jump really works in the show's favor, advancing these characters to new stages of their lives in a way that conveys hope while still acknowledging that the same problems they've dealt with in previous seasons persist.

May 3, 2021 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

The spirit of the show is still as intoxicating as any daydream, this time balancing even more skillfully grit and visual lushness.

May 5, 2021 | Full Review…

Pose Season 3 is the final chapter in the story of the House of Evangelista, and while the season as a whole is not perfect, the show pulls off an absolutely perfect ending.

May 3, 2021 | Full Review…

It's a tour de force for Porter, who took home the Emmy for lead actor for his portrayal of Pray Tell once already. From emotional family moments to hospital drama scenes, he gets to do it all.

May 3, 2021 | Full Review…

Pose seems to be sprinting through story to fit everything in in its final season. It's a little all over the place but entertaining enough in the soapy way Pose always is.

Apr 30, 2021 | Full Review…

A deeply emotional, hugely entertaining, and thoroughly satisfying seven-episode third and final season.

Apr 27, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

[T]he showrunners have proved that if you portray these people with all the complexity of their lives you can create a story that appeals to both those within and outside the communities you're portraying.
