Here are some of the reviews of 13 Reasons Why season 3
One of the critic reviews said: "If '13 Reasons Why' wasn't such a well-viewed show, we could ignore it as just another bad piece of television." Another reviewed the season saying: "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." The New York Post said: "13 Reasons Why tried to re-brand itself in its third season, but it's still over the top and ridiculous."
The audience reviews are nothing short of savage. One says: "Boring, exaggerated melodrama for a series that could have had a perfect ending in it's first season." Others include: "Why is this show still running?!", "Seeing season three is like torture", "Absolute garbage show. Should have been cancelled after the first season", "Boring and lost touch with its storyline. Half the characters are dry. The attempt at portraying addiction is hilariously bad" and "the worst TV show on Netflix so far."
