Sky Rojo Season 3 Review

Loading JustWatch data…


It remains imperfect, but the third — and presumably final — season of Heaven Rojo Goes for an action-packed high and delivers a final finish and plenty of catharsis.

There are no spoilers in this review of the Netflix series Sky Rojo Season 3.

Heaven Rojo was an instant hit for Netflix mainly thanks to the fact that it is the work of Alex Pinathe creator of money robberythe in the form of its recent South Korean adaptation — lined the pockets of many of the streamer’s executives. But it was a different kind of show altogether, a saucy, sun-drenched escape thriller with rocket-fuelled pace and a female focus, in which the trio of women were at heart fleeing a lifetime of male abuse. Some felt that it probably wasn’t necessary a second seasonand those who were mixed about it probably weren’t eagerly awaiting the third, but here we are.

Sky Rojo Season 3 Review and Plot Summary

But in many ways Heaven Rojo saved the best for last, delivering enough catharsis and narrative reward in its last eight episodes to justify some of the needless dodges we’ve taken to get here. This is expressly a final season with a coherent ending, and while it’s not all sunshine and roses, there’s a pleasing gung-ho quality to this latest outing that I thought was worth the wait.

Here’s a catch-up: At the end of the second season, Coral, Wendy and Gina had managed to evade their dastardly former pimp Romeo with millions of his dirty dollars. But they were not free and clear. Romeo’s right-hand man, Moises, still believes the girls killed his addicted brother Christian and remained determined to track them down at all costs. His desire for revenge made him easily manipulated by Romeo, who despite some new physical handicaps still ran the club and was in control of many other girls’ lives.

At the beginning of Season 3, Coral, Wendy and Gina live in a fancy beachfront mansion. They own and run a bakery where they launder Romeo’s money, and while they’ve mostly put their past behind them, none of them can get away from it entirely. Gina is heavily pregnant, Coral still has a drug addiction that she hides, and when she goes to bed at night she imagines the walls crushing her to death. When an error reveals their whereabouts to Romeo, he sends Moises and his psychopathic new assassin Darwin to kill them.

As always, Heaven RojoIts greatest strength is its pace, with episodes lasting just over half an hour, which is refreshingly breezy. After spending an episode establishing the new status quo and introducing some fresh faces like Darwin and Wendy’s new lover Greta, we’re on our way, and things just don’t let up until the finale, which comes full circle without the need to to feel left on an unsatisfactory cliffhanger. That’s a nice change of pace for a Netflix show.

And the characters remain compelling even though we’ve already seen most of their arcs. Coral feels old hat as she deals with her addiction, but Gina has some great moments, and Wendy’s new romantic bond gives her character a new definition. On the villain side, the show remains undecided on whether we should consider Moises a hero or villain, or Romeo a legitimate threat or a comic relief jerk, but Darwin is a frighteningly sadistic new antagonist who helps raise the final seasons stakes with its violent unpredictability.

Is Sky Rojo season 3 good?

Because of the speed at which we tear through the storyline, some characters and subplots feel like they appear out of nowhere, and the resulting dynamic feels a little undeserved, especially towards the end. But Pina and his team are willing to devote an entire episode to a set piece like a superbly tense boat shootout, which really lets the action sing. In its third season Heaven Rojo seems to have morphed into an action thriller more than anything, and by finally putting that kind of power in the hands of women who’ve spent two seasons being bullied and abused, we can finally turn the tables and enjoy a cathartic finale. If this is the last time we’ve seen these characters, which it should be, then they’re going full steam ahead.
