No spoilers for Ragnarok Season 3 will be found in this review.
For those reading who have already watched the first two seasons, you can rest easy knowing that the final instalment still has all of the great qualities and elements demonstrated throughout its predecessor seasons.
If you’re new to Netflix’s Nordic reimagining of the Norse Gods facing off against Giants, then watching the first two seasons prior to diving into its final episodes is highly recommended.
Joining Stakston once again includes series stars such as Jonas Strand Gravli who plays Laurits aka Loki, Herman Tømmeraas as Fjor, with Synnøve Macody Lund as Ran, and Theresa Frostad Eggesbø as Saxa.
Danu Sunth also returns as Iman aka the reincarnated goddess of love Freyja among other stars from the show’s first two seasons.
Ragnarok: Season 3 Review
As before mentioned, the final season of Ragnarok possesses all of the same great qualities that defined the first two seasons. The tone is perfectly set from the jump as the brilliantly paced first episode smoothly transitions you from reality into the fictional town of Edda for one last thrilling ride.
What separates this series as a whole from other Norse God-related projects such as Marvel’s Thor franchise is that this reimagines the ancient myths by tackling modern-day issues and seamlessly blending them with mythology.
Issues such as climate change and industrial pollution caused by factories, in this case, a company owned by the antagonist group of rich Jötnar giants that pretend to be a family that goes by the name of Jutul.
Tackling subject matter such as this can feel forced or unnecessary if not executed well or with heart. However, the writers of this series clearly care about the topics that are presented as well as proving their skill in creating an immensely gripping story that truly holds your attention from beginning to end.
It’s hard to fault this series, especially if you the viewer are both a fan of Norse mythology and find the subject matter even just a tad relatable. Its only major flaw is that there won’t be any new episodes post-season 3.
5 out of 5 stars
