Critic Reviews for 13 Reasons Why Season 3

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (6)

If "13 Reasons Why" wasn't such a well-viewed show, we could ignore it as just another bad piece of television.

Every time this show almost does something good it just veers off for the lazy sophomoric treatise instead. It's exhausting and it's unpleasant and it's often dangerous, and at this point, there is no reason why it should still be around.

The problem here is how much misery will these teenagers have to endure just to come of age?

Aug 23, 2019 | Full Review…

13 Reasons Why repeatedly indulges in the "angry young man" trope, but Season 3 sees Clay become more of an impediment to his own benevolence than ever.

Maybe instead of "keeping an eye on Tyler" at all times, the students could instead find him some professional help.

Aug 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Every season, the number of women in the cast shrinks, and they're replaced with more tortured boys in increasingly violent situations....It's just more blatant about it now.

Sep 4, 2019 | Full Review…

This strange insistence on moralizing teen pain, while also presenting completely amoral storylines, makes season three such a frustrating watch.

Aug 30, 2019 | Full Review…

13 Reasons Why tried to re-brand itself in its third season, but it's still over the top and ridiculous.

Aug 29, 2019 | Full Review…

What I'm really saying is that the third season of 13 Reasons Why is a ridiculous, maddening, overlong example of Peak TV-era television that doesn't know how to quit when it's ahead.

Aug 28, 2019 | Full Review…

By cluttering its plot with preposterous drama even as it strains for uplift, or at least some greater meaning, the series undermines its own intention-and winds up making itself useful to no one in particular.

Audience Reviews for 13 Reasons Why: Season 3

    Where to begin with this horrible season? Every episode it was hard to believe Oni (spelling?) is telling this story to the cops who are investigating a homicide. Babysitting Tyler??? And finally glorifying vigilante justice with massive lies while we are supposed to believe these are high school kids??!! This season did not need to happen and it did not need 13 episodes.

    Despite many who were let down with this season, I felt it encapsulates a lot of very difficult topics and it approached them well.

    ONE WORD ......... WTF did i just watch and hold on let me explain my self, i loved the 1 season the Hannah baker story, after that season everything was done with me. season 2 was extending the Hannah baker story and it did not work also building a different story and surrounding it with different issues. the story i really enjoyed was the Tyler story line and how he had to fight his issue with being harassed and bullied around. LOVED JESSICA DAVIS her character grow and evolved enormously and was fantastic. the new girl ANI she was ok but not impressed. see full review in Spanish, on my YouTube channel The Joejoe Show!!!!

    The only reason I gave this two stars was for the amazing acting by Devin Druid (Tyler Down) in the scene where Tyler discloses his sexual assault by Monty DeLa Cruz to Clay. Other than that, the storyline was shockingly convoluted and completely unbelievable. The new characters were under developed and Ani was down right annoying. An entirely unnecessary season to what was originally a great show, that could have ended after season 1 and definitely should have ended after season 2.

    I liked this season! It was cheesy but I think the portrayal of Bryce as a "good" guy and Clay as a questionable guy (through Ani's perspective) was very smart!

    Loved the first season, was fine with the second, but the writing for the 3rd season is incredibly bad and the new main character is really annoying.
  • 4d ago
    Incredibly boring , non of the characters are believable

    rarely, while seeing a tv series, I have the recurring thought to end it promptly as is happened with this. they've chosen a delicate but interesting topic and then, due to their huge emptiness of ideas, stretched to the death. even from the very first season is horrendously boring and the absolute total lack of material and ideas from the ‘writers', to me, is actually horrifically unbelievable. how the network had paid for a second and a third and now a fourth season, is beyond any human comprehension. the series goes almost slower than the forehead wound remained an interminable scar in the poor guy head. then there's the casting. so unprofessional that I suggest to a mandatory sterilisation of the entire bunch of executives that broad us characters as toni, marcus, justin and so on. even the main characters aren't so good. very, very below the average. and finally, there's the netflix alert for sex scene, drugs, violence. where the fork they've seen those kinda of scenes? meibe in the same sick minds that doesn't have aborted this waist of time, money and space in the first place.

    I thought this show was great. I don't know why everybody is judging it so badly
  • 5d ago
    Whilst season two is often criticised and deemed unnecessary, at least the characters are familiar and it still feels connected to the fantastic first season. In season 3 we don't see many of those familiar faces. Couple that with a new main character (Ani) being shoehorned into the 'Hannah Baker' role of narration and add in some confusing flashbacks and what we're left with is a muddled mess of a murder mystery that feels more like a spin off than part of the main show. Despite its flaws, this season shows interesting sides of characters we haven't seen much of before, if at all, and like the two before it, showcases some incredibly powerful moments. Ultimately, this season just about keeps its head above water and remains watchable throughout, although I do believe wrapping things up after season 2 would have been more fitting.
