Back for more soapy shenanigans and flashbacks to a troublemaking heyday, The House of Flowers Season 3 is a treat for fans.

The latest in the storied and dysfunctional travails of the ill-fated de la Mora family arrive on Netflix today in the form of The House of Flowers Season 3, a well-liked Mexican dramedy that has been a sleeper hit on the platform since La Casa de las Flores debuted in August, 2018. That first season was kick-started by the family patriarch’s mistress committing suicide, and only got wilder from there, with hijinks involving drugs, flowers, relationships, deaths, stolen money, and more besides.

The House of Flowers Season 3 kicks off as a direct continuation of the second season’s revenge plot against the family’s light-fingered former accountant Diego (Juan Pablo Medina). Paulina (Cecilia Suárez), the eldest de la Mora sibling, is in jail, and Elena (Aislinn Derbez) is in a coma. Julian (Dario Yazbek Bernal) is back to openly dating Diego, and dead family matriarch Virginia returns in flashbacks, which is the big narrative novelty of this third season.

Paulina’s incarceration woes form a big thread too since she fears for her life and is liable to be kept there by the conspiring of others. The parentage of comatose Elena’s child is a matter of some discussion and makes for a typically soapy subplot.

With young Virginia making for a great point of focus, and the usual blend of complicated, progressive family melodrama and soapy slapstick ensuring established fans get what they came for, The House of Flowers Season 3 proves that this dramedy is in no danger of wilting any time soon.
