If you need a new show to watch on Netflix this week, check out Love season three, available to stream now.
Romances are almost never the smooth, easy ride that the movies paint relationships out to be. Netflix’s Original comedy series Love really nails all the weirdness and greatness of real-life dating, rather than falling into the tired and superficial tropes of many of its fellow romantic comedies.
Love has always been an underrated gem and its third installment seems just as worthy of your time as the previous two seasons. You can check it out right away as the streaming service released the final 12 episodes on Friday, March 9.
Our third season follows Gus (Paul Rust) and Mickey (Gillian Jacobs), two down-to-Earth weirdos who are now in a fully committed relationship with each other. It’s a great direction for the show’s story as it takes the characters into new situations, allowing for plenty of growth.
Despite being in a relationship, though, you can still expect all of the hilarious awkwardness that inherently accompanies two people who are simply unpracticed in love. The season follows a really natural evolution that allows for a graceful exit from the streaming service.
That’s right: this is the final season. Despite being critically praised, the show will not be returning. Still, it’s a rare thing to watch a show that gets to go out on its own terms. Watching the conclusion certainly feels bittersweet, with the cast and crew really nailing the nuanced message they want their series to leave the world with.
Say goodbye to Mickey and Gus in exactly the right way, with the leading guy and gal as charming as ever. Nothing is forced and we get an everyday look at love that ends very much as you would expect things to end in real life.
If you’ve never watched before, catch up on all of the episodes as well as the new season, available to stream now. Love stars Rust, Jacobs, Claudia O’Doherty, Mike Mitchell, Chris Witaske, Jordan Rock, Iris Apatow and Brett Gelman. Love was co-created by Rust, Lesley Arfin and Judd Apatow.
Love ranks on our list of the 50 best comedies on Netflix so check out where the series ranks and what show you may want to watch when you finish season 3.
