A compelling season finale.

Aug 16, 2019 | Full Review…

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

Jun 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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.

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

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

May 29, 2019 | 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…

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

Audience Reviews for The Handmaid's Tale: Season 3

  • 1d ago
    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

    'The Handmaid's Tale' I can safely say that THIS is a real horror story. After each episode I find myself dazed , often with tears in my eyes and that is the truth . With that said the story and character arc's are so good it is worth the melancholy emotion. I understand how the dismal tail won 8 Emmies for a TV series . There is all - love, drama, thriller, sex combined in a very unexpected way. It doesn't have a thing you'd like to throw away from the film. It's complete and organic. Our days TV shows has grown in something bigger. It became a real movie with a row of episodes. Definitely new era in filming. 'The Handmaids Tale' is a compelling, albeit extreme, experience of sexism, sadism, and the triumph of the human spirit. The story line, set in the future, reminds me of the holocaust in its other worldly "how on earth did this happen" perspective. I couldn't stop watching it! Excellent must see program.

    Season 1 and 2 was far better. They jumped the shark on season 3.

    Season 3 was a disappointment. I watched it all the way through. Some things did not make sense and I hated the way it finished. 5 stars to season 1 and 2, but 3 was a let down...

    Excellent! Keeps surprising me. Storyline keeps me intrigued season after season

    Great season! I don't understand why people are complaining.

    The Handmaid's Tale as a whole is one of my favorite shows. It is so intense and exciting. Season 3 was super epic, I cant wait to see more.

    You thought season 2 was bad? I agree. Well in season 3 this series went full throttle SJW on us.... very sad indeed. What used to be a great series in the first season turned into a boresome farce that leaves you a bitter taste in your mouth. Completely unwatchable.

    I really can't get enough of this series... fantastic cine and acting all around.. more!
  • Sep 05, 2019
    I keep coming back each season to see if this show has gotten any better. It hasn't.
