Not only are viewers loving “The Kominsky Method,” but critics have been praising the show as it airs its final season. Brian Lowry of CNN wrote that the final season “deals with friendship, grief and loss in ways that are alternately funny and touching and, overall, satisfying, yielding another strong showcase for Douglas.” He added that it gets the “curtain call that it deserved.” Daniel Hart from Ready Steady Cut favorably compared the show to “Gilmore Girls,” writing, “Series like this make you want to sit at the table with the characters and enjoy the experience.”
The series currently holds a stellar 90% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes and average audience score of 82%. The accolades go beyond the critics, as the show has gone on to win two Golden Globes (Best Actor for Douglas and Best Musical/Comedy Series) and was nominated for six Emmys. Whether or not Douglas and the show will nab Emmys for the final season has yet to be seen, as the next ceremony is still a few months away. Even if the cast and crew aren’t recognized for their work on the third season, it deserves a spot on your list if you’ve missed out on “The Kominsky Method” for the past couple of years.
