"Though it was shot two years ago, Search Party's Season 3 is surprisingly relevant to, even prescient of, the political winds of 2020," says Inkoo Kang of the former TBS series' HBO Max debut. "That's in large part due to the lacerating observation that creators Sarah-Violet Bliss, Charles Rogers and Michael Showalter have threaded through the series since its earliest days: That women — especially highly privileged women — who only see themselves as victims in any situation or context can be alarmingly dangerous to others." Kang adds: "It's hard not to admire the well-paced plotting of Season 3, as well as its careful attention to tying up the loose ends from the previous season. The 10 episodes constantly veer toward an unreality, with the latter third of the season, in particular, threatening to take the series from dramedy to horror-thriller. But Search Party ultimately remains tethered to our world, full of cautionary warnings about predators who can't see themselves as anything but prey."
