Tv Season Info

Hurricane Katrina is more than two years in the past as series 3 opens in the fall of 2007, but many of the wounds opened by the storm's devastation still fester as Toni (Melissa Leo) finds an ally in reporter L.P. (Chris Coy) to investigate several unsolved murders. On the music scene, Annie (Lucia Micarelli) is starting to draw attention as a bandleader; Davis (Steve Zahn) pours his heart—and Aunt Mimi's money—into a post-Katrina musical; Antoine (Wendell Pierce) charts a new course mentoring young musicians; and Delmond (Rob Brown) releases a CD with his dad, Albert (Clarke Peters), who won't let a health scare keep him out of Mardi Gras. Elsewhere, Janette (Kim Dickens) is wooed back to town by a take-charge restaurateur; Nelson (Jon Seda) latches on to plans for a jazz center; Terry (David Morse) fights police corruption; Sonny (Michiel Huisman) tries to clean up his act working on a shrimp boat; and LaDonna (Khandi Alexander) has trouble putting a traumatic event behind her.

Critic Reviews for Treme: Season 3

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5)

The city and its polis may have been damaged beyond repair, but its essence, expressed in its culture, remains. These have been the two poles of Treme throughout the season, mostly given equal weight.

There is a beautiful ache to Treme, a yearning that comes from the music and dreams of the characters. It feels like nothing else on television.

May 25, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Treme's season finale provide us with some very real forms of resolution, if not complete closure, while also energizing us for the final season of the show, which will be coming next year.

September 27, 2013 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Though the new season isn't any kind of radical transformation, it does feel like the best one yet.

September 23, 2012 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

This season of Treme didn't even start that slowly, though it was, as usual, jam-packed with exposition.

September 23, 2012 | Full Review…

It feels like an attempt at absolute verisimilitude, and in its own start-stop way, it has a rhythm unlike any other show on television.
