News & Interviews for Versailles: Season 3

Critic Reviews for Versailles Season 3

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

Versailles is cold and curiously uninvolving. Indeed, it's rather like the titular palais: ravishing to look at but ultimately an expensive folly.

Mar 25, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Versailles started with promise, but, like the palace itself, its lavish budget could probably have been better spent (on script editors, say, or some more distinctive wigs).

My word, it's dreary.

Jun 5, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

For those who have enjoyed Versailles over its first two seasons, Season 3 will deliver more of the same grandiosity, humor, and courtly intrigue that makes the show so entertaining even when it veers dangerously close to chaos.

Mar 24, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

There's gossip and scheming, political machinations and grandiose speeches. Romantic intrigue abounds. Everyone wears amazing outfits. What's not to love?

Oct 8, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Versailles is glamorous, highly camp and corny.

Jul 10, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Why, oh why, is this Louis XIV so boring? It is one of the great enigmas of this ambitious and sprawling now-dead series.

Jun 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Odd to imagine the story of the Sun King could ever be dull, but the lines here were so creaky...and the pace so plodding, an hour felt like a year.

Jun 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Blagden is splendid as the absolutist king Louis XIV. With magnetic intensity, Blagden projects the calculated coolness of an ambitious king who passionately and intelligently builds a new social order.

Audience Reviews for Versailles: Season 3

  • Apr 23, 2020
    One of the best shows I've seen in a long time. Though, I am utterly heartbroken. The writers didn't do enough for Philipe and the Chevalier! There were so many missed opportunities that would have had viewers in tears if they had done it. They shied away from cute love and it did not do well with this couple. They were the ones with the most chemistry and literally all that kept me through the show. Never been so invested in a couple. Their love was incredible and though their last scene of S3 was great, it was not nearly enough after all they were put through. They deserved more screen time during S3 and more kindness in S2. One of my favorite TV couples EVER. Broke my heart...

    I hope it is renewed/picked up for the another season. A beautiful cast and visually stunning show to which few can compare.

    Despite the glorious setting and visual feast of the period, Versailles failed to deliver the much awaited character arc for Louis XIV... leaving the viewer disappointed and bored. Louis begins the series as a paranoid, capricious, two dimensional, uncertain monarch who is easily manipulated by women and ends the series, well, pretty much the same. Despite the poor dialogue and lazy use of dream sequences in an attempt to shove the character development forward, the series is watchable thanks to some more intriguing subplots and better developed personalities (such as Phillipe). Overall, the incredible setting carries the series much further than the writing would merit. So watch it, but don't expect to be blown away. The Sun King fails to shine.

    Nowhere near as good as the previous two series. Disappointing end to the stories.
  • Apr 06, 2019
    OMG! OMG! OMG! Can't get enough of Versailles! Season 3?! Wholy Moly it's great and I've almost finished the entire season in 1 day!

    Love this amazing show with all these beautiful people in it!!!! Wish Netflix would play season three!!!
  • Sep 01, 2018
    Can't wait. The critics are often wrong. Look at the rating they gave The Orville. Really bizarre!
