HBO renewed Barry Season 3 quite a while ago, but unfortunately, the fans haven’t seen the third season yet. It has been one and a half years since the announcement of the renewal, but the fans are still facing the hiatus to watch the following installment. They are getting desperate to see more of the critically acclaimed dark-comedy. This series also received 30 primetime Emmy award nominations recently.
Barry is an American (very) dark comedy crime TV series. Bill Hader and Alec Berg co-created this show. Bill is also the lead actor in the series. The show first premiered on March 25, 2018. The second season of the series premiered after a gap of one year on March 31, 2019. Both seasons received a great response from the fans as well as the critics. They praised the show for its dark humor, acting, and solid storylines.
Barry Season 3: Production Status!
The cast for the third season of the series was preparing to begin the shoot. However, it never happened. They even gathered for the table-read for the first two episodes of the third season. But then they had to halt their plans because of the Coronavirus pandemic. Now, according to the latest reports, the makers are planning to resume the production for Barry Season 3 by January 2021. It is also reported that they will begin filming for the fourth season of the series right after completing the third season.
Who Will Appear?
The makers of the series haven’t publicly announced the addition of any new cast members yet. So, it is likely that there will be no new main cast additions. However, the viewers might see some guest appearances. It is also possible that the makers are keeping these new characters a surprise and will reveal it sometime before the premiere.
Most of the cast members from the previous season will reprise their roles in Barry Season 3. The returning cast members include Bill Hader as “Barry Berkman/Barry Block,” Anthony Carrigan as “NoHo Hank,” Sarah Goldberg as “Sally Reed,” Stephen Root as “Monroe Fuches,’ Glenn Fleshler as “Goran Pazar,” and Henry Winkler as “Gene Cousineau.”
Barry Season 3: Plot Details
The show revolves around a hitman named Barry Berkman, who unexpectedly appears in an acting class. He met Sally Reed there, who is an enthusiastic actress and also grew into his love interest. The viewers saw him trying to quit his old habits, but he is often met with difficulties when doing so.
Barry is still living the criminal life. Fuchs asks him to hit a person that is unique and wants him to continue in his life. He refuses to shoot because he wants to maintain his profession in acting. In the previous season finale, Cousineau recognizes that Fuches told that Barry is liable for Janice’s death. Therefore in Barry Season 3, the fans will see the consequences of these events.
Barry Season 3: Release Date
The third season of the series, which should have been released in March 2020, will now most probably release in March 2021. The makers will try to warp the production of Barry Season 3 before the end of March so that they can release the premiere episode in its last week.
