True Detective Season 3



Critic Ratings: 15
Critics Consensus

While viewers may be split by how "Now Am Found" concludes the central mystery of this True Detective incarnation, most will agree that the richly emotional finale brings closure to Wayne Hayes' story, ending on a bittersweet, gently optimistic note that is refreshing for a series known for its unblinking nihilism.

Critic Reviews for Now Am Found

The criteria by which Season 3 should be judged is whether Pizzolatto lived up to his aspirations as an investigator of human nature. Really, he made a mildly engaging muddle.

I agree that it's a show that couldn't decide what it was, that shifted radically in tone and structure from episode to episode. Its moments of greatness far outweighed its disappointments for me-even now, when I'm close to my depth of disappointment.

Another happy ending in the books. Another story where the light is winning. And that feels good.

Lots of people lost lots of things in True Detective season 3. But, if nothing else, things worked out for Julie Purcell. And that, in a world where so much went so wrong for so many, is a comfort.

I stand by this: "Form and Void" was pretty good, and "Now Am Found" was fine, bordering on eh.

Feb 28, 2019 | Full Review…

The season rode on the backs of strong performances and a plot that went about 50 degrees to the left of where we thought it was going to go, and it all pretty much worked for me.

This was the best True Detective yet, and the first to merit a complete re-watch.

Feb 26, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Season three, which ought to be a fitting final chapter in the True Detective anthology, ended with a meditation on time and memory lost, love elusive and gained, beginnings and endings beside the point.

Feb 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Pizzolatto's writing was more streamlined and disciplined this season than last, and the multiple timelines were elegantly managed. And by ending on a note of optimism, he plays shrewdly against his own reputation. Well done.

It's a lovely way to end the season, even if the finale could have been a little stronger overall.
