Storyline

Shadow is a man with a past. But now he wants nothing more than to live a quiet life with his wife and stay out of trouble. Until he learns that she's been killed in a terrible accident. Flying home for the funeral, as a violent storm rocks the plane, he is greeted by a strange man in the seat next to him. The man calls himself Mr. Wednesday, and he knows more about Shadow than is possible. He warns Shadow that a far bigger storm is coming. And from that moment on, nothing will ever be the same.

What's going on with S3
4 March 2021 | by taneemitSee all my reviews

Not sure what's going on with season 3! It's worse than season 2. Why make a season if you don't really have a story! A bad season means bad ratings and the slow will be axed.
