Critic Reviews for The Handmaid's Tale Season 3

All Critics (56) | Top Critics (25)

A compelling season finale.

Aug 16, 2019 | Full Review…

June -- trapped in her sequence of shock, rebellion, rinse, repeat -- doesn't feel like a person anymore.

Jun 5, 2019 | Full Review…

If not much sunnier, not as relentlessly grim as the second, while June is slowly, methodically, morphing into the Robo-June we know she must become. So far, so good.

What's obvious about "The Handmaid's Tale" works wonders. What's more opaque can create problems.

It may be too in love with the slow burn of visual storytelling, but The Handmaid's Tale still knows what it's about.

Dec 13, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

From a perpetually flat June making breathtakingly stupid decisions to the ongoing cosmic joke that is this show's writer/director gender breakdown, it's hard to keep rooting for The Handmaid's Tale.

Jun 11, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

June, Serena, and Emily have changed so much since season one, but this episode proves they have a lot more left in them and that the audience should be excited to see where they're headed.

Dec 13, 2019 | Full Review…

The Handmaid's Tale deserves to be dinged for some poor plot construction at the start of season three. But these episodes indicate that the larger story of the season will be worth it.

Dec 13, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The Handmaid's Tale seems to be going too slowly, stretching out the story to fill the latest season.

Dec 13, 2019 | Full Review…

In terms of quality, 'The Handmaid's Tale' continues to be splendid, however one can notice a certain fear to evolve or leave the comfort zone. [Full Review in Spanish]

May 30, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

It's a powerful ending and the beginning of an exciting new chapter for The Handmaid's Tale.

May 29, 2019 | Full Review…

It's changed from a dystopian nightmare to a revenge fantasy.

Audience Reviews for The Handmaid's Tale: Season 3

  • May 16, 2020
    The show's third season is quite a refreshment to the story. We don't just continue seeing the same old Gilead as in season 1. They could've just kept things the way they were before, but they didn't. They're developing the constant fall of Gilead, which is what I admire most. They keep continuing, not staying static, like most shows.

    They run out of arguments, bad script, Elisabeth Moss gets tiring.

    في مستقبل خيالي تتمكن ديكتاتورية دينية من السيطرة على الولايات المتحدة، لتقوم بعملية قلب للمفاهيم والقيم، يحكي المسلسل حياة سيدة تم استعبادها في المجتمع الجديد (جلياد) وكيف تمكنت مع مجموعة من الإماء من عمل تنظيم سري استطاع هدم النظام الجديد من الداخل. ويصور المسلسل بدقة كيف ستبدو الحياة/القيم/المفاهيم في ظل ديكتاتورية دينية (ثيوقراطية - نَصيّة)؟

    Apart from 3 last episodes the third season is just a disaster. Loosing the ground of original screenplay the creators try to improvise adding some complex undercurrents to the story, but eventually just make it unbearable to follow and watch.

    June is my hero. I loved this season, and was in tears at the end of the finale. Brilliantly written, when you go back and watch the first and second seasons again, you can clearly define the path that led her to this moment. I am geeked for season four.

    It was amazing and thrilling and definitely bing worthy ! My boyfriend , family, and I can't wait for season 4!!!!!!😍

    The writer of that show is clearly lost. He broke all the rules he did when they built that world in the first season.

    watching it continues to be masochistic - one knows things will go badly, but continues watching it. the three seasons could have been made in two - too prolonged, the emotional scenes of suffering were too long to be natural. that's why 3 stars
  • Dec 27, 2019
    Brutal and great, just like the previous seasons
  • Dec 26, 2019
    Watch season 1 and 2 and watch no more.
