Critic Reviews for The Handmaid's Tale Season 3

All Critics (53) | Top Critics (23)

A compelling season finale.

Aug 16, 2019 | Full Review…

As much as the season stumbled creatively, "Handmaid's" remains the most gorgeously filmed show on television.

Top Critic

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.

Top Critic

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

Top Critic

Rarely are lighting, design and music so privileged over dialogue.

Jun 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | 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 changed from a dystopian nightmare to a revenge fantasy.

May 29, 2019 | Full Review…

The Handmaid's Tale is often quite a powerful show, given how it deals with themes and topics that can often be quite shocking, timely, and emotionally-charged...

Aug 14, 2019 | Full Review…

A smart, startling, topical turn...

Aug 2, 2019 | Full Review…

The Handmaid's Tale continues to excel as one of the most inventive, thought-provoking and never-less-than-plausible dystopian dramas to reach our screens in decades.

Jul 29, 2019 | Rating: 10/10 | Full Review…

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

Audience Reviews for The Handmaid's Tale: Season 3

  • Nov 12, 2019
    What happened? After outstanding world building in first 2 seasons, Gilead is a joke that can now easily be pushed over.
  • Nov 03, 2019
    The work of operators is good. The plot is thrilling but the main character - is awful. Her actions and her mimics were so pathetic and idiotic that every-time I saw her face, I was triggered. 🤢🤢🤢
  • Nov 01, 2019
    I almost gave up on this show after season 2. I am so glad that I didn't. There are so many parallels in our world to draw from. The Underground Railroad of the 1860s, the persecution of Jews in the 1940s and the persecution of women in the modern Middle East all serve as inspirations and are ripe with tales of rebels, agitators and heroes. In a day and age when most of our heroes wear capes or have billion dollar steel armor it's refreshing to see the plain old human spirit alive and kicking ass.

    This season was just so uninteresting. Complete waste of time. Should have wrapped up in 2 seasons.
  • Oct 16, 2019
    The writers really go out of their way to make a certain demographic look like monsters.
  • Oct 12, 2019
    Season 3 dropped the ball. Too slow. Repetitive tropes. The writers overuse the techniques that made first seasons good. Shame
  • Oct 10, 2019
    The last season I'll watch. Another show that's gotten too political and PC. Watch the first season for sure, but this one lacks the nuance and tension of the first.
  • Oct 09, 2019
    I was liking season 3 well enough until episode 11. This woman is seriously stupid all along, but really - not even washing off the blood before leaving that opulent hotel room? Surely there was a bathroom. I had to stop watching. The writers are insulting our intelligence at this point. Wash off the blood you idiot.
  • Oct 08, 2019
    Loved the finale, finally some action after many lackluster filler episodes. Looking forward to the next season.
  • Sep 19, 2019
    Elizabeth Moss plays the role like a marvel character. One minute she can barely stand, and the very next she is beating to death a man three times her size in the prime of health. She thinks way too much of herself in season 3. Appreciated many of the other actors more than Moss. Moss, as a producer takes too much liberty with June's character
