After the immense success of the previous two seasons of Barry on HBO, the fans are eagerly waiting for the premiere of Barry Season 3. However, it seems like they have to wait a little longer than usual to watch it on screen. The series has already bagged 30 Primetime Emmy nominations so far, which is clearly showing why the fans are liking it so much. The first and second seasons hold 98% and 100% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Barry is an American dark-comedy crime TV series. Bill Hader, who is also the lead actor of Barry, created it along with Alec Berg. The show made its debut on March 25, 2018, on HBO. After the gap of a year, the second season premiered on March 31, 2019. Both seasons turned out to be a blockbuster for the network. Therefore the creators wasted no time and renewed the show for its third season in April 2019.
Production Status Of The Third Season!
The cast and crew of the series began the production of the series earlier this year. They gathered for the table-read for the first two episodes, and then, unfortunately, they had to stop. The creators halted the production of Barry Season 3 on March 18, 2020, due to the shutdown caused by the Coronavirus Pandemic. They were not able to shot even a single episode for the third season, which means the filming didn’t even start. And it is a clear indication that the third season will take a lot more time than expected to release. The cast and crew are eagerly waiting for the shutdown to lift so that they can start the production again.
