Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous continues to delve into dinosaur nerdery but becomes more compelling by its use of characters.

We review Netflix’s Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Season 3, which contains no spoilers. It was released on the streaming service on May 21, 2021. 

If Netflix announced that Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous was cancelled after season 1, I wouldn’t have been surprised or remembered the series. It was okay entertainment and only passed the acid test because of dinosaur entertainment (which we all want). However, with a loyal audience and managing to grab children and adults alike, this story in the Jurassic World Universe has managed to slowly become a staple series that viewers will binge on the day.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Season 3 Review and Plot Summary

Which is an impressive feat if you think about it. At its heart, it’s a mellow children’s show that veers on the side of the core narrative. However, since season 2, it’s clear that the creators have more than an adventure; there’s a succinct storyboard that is ready to be explored. Season 3 of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous drew my interest way more than its predecessors; the story has truly benefitted with time and patience and with respect to the universe it is treading on. I can feel it too; the predecessors barely had a low humming buzz, but season 3 has managed to gather a conversation on social media.

The third season feels like a segway, with the campers naturally finding a way to disconnect themselves from the island completely; of course, nothing is simple in this series. Plenty of entertaining obstacles stand in their way, leading to a thrilling finale.

But like always, Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous continues to delve into dinosaur nerdery but becomes more compelling by its use of characters. I’ve said this repeatedly regarding this series; younger people can take many important messages from the themes, especially in an increasingly divisive world. The messages of togetherness, friendship, and human relationships come through simply but with impact.

That’s not to say the dinosaurs are not important, but they are merely plot devices while the group of campers continuing exploring their relationships. The experiences teach them about their personality traits, whether negative or positive, and become the story’s arc.

So with that, I’m happy to declare that Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous is here to stay, and I hope the next phase of the journey is as equally as exciting.
