Finally, after a year-long wait, the series stars’ photo from the set of Barry confirms that the filming for Barry Season 3 is officially underway. Co-created by Alec Berg and Bill Hader, HBO’s tragicomedy follows a highly skilled hitman, Barry Berkman, who travels to Los Angeles to hide, but unintentionally joins an acting career.
The show soon received plenty of accolades for its unique and hilarious narrative. Even the second season has gained growth in the audience, and the explosive season finale left fans clamoring for more. Now it remains to explore whether Barry will be caught in the third run or not. However, it seems fans have to wait to know the answer to that question. Since the pandemic hit the entire entertainment industry that left the production for Barry Season 3 up in the air. But the recent post hints that soon, the dangerous acting underworld will return.
Barry Season 3: Filming Has Finally Begun!
Production for Barry abruptly halted in March 2020 while cameras were about to roll for the third season. However, the 17-month delay came as the silver lining for the show as the writers not only mapped the third outing, but they have already finished writing the fourth season as well. Recently, the series star Henry Winkler tweeted his return. On August 2, he shared a prop poster teasing the first day on the set.

However, soon after a week, HBO shared a snap of Bill Hader with Harry, hinting that the dynamic has returned to film the third run. Well, it’s the first time when Hader appeared in the snap. It means filming has finally picked up its speed. As of now, the writers have already finished writing the scripts. Thus it suggests that production could speed up.
Barry Season Season 3: What To Expect From The Next Run?
The last season ended up with a huge cliffhanger and a lot of bloodsheds. After struggling to deal with his messed life, Barry goes on a rampage to hunt his former mentor Fuches down. Meanwhile, Gene got arrested for his ex-girlfriend Janice’s murder which he hadn’t done. But soon, the police discovered that the Chechen mob is behind this murder and released Gene from jail.
But before the credit rolls, Gene remembered that while Fuches showed him Janice’s body, he revealed that Barry had done this. So now it would create chaos in Barry and Gene’s lives as he has finally learned the true identity of Barry. Speaking on which, Anthony Carrigan, who plays NoHo Hank, said the third season would bring dangerous stuff. Well, it seems Barry would try to play dirty to hide his image.
Barry Season 3: When Will It Release?
As of now, HBO hasn’t revealed the official release date, as the third run is in its early production stage. But the second season took four months to finish filming. Thus deeming that filming lasted between September 2018 to December 2018, we expect filming for the third run to likely last at least three months. So we hope that Barry Season 3 would air later this year.
Is Barry Season 4 Happening?
Given that writers have already mapped the fourth run, it seems Barry Season 4 could happen. However, HBO has yet to renew the show for the next run officially. In a recent interview, Casey Bloys, HBO and HBO Max’s chief content officer, said they usually don’t pick the series until it airs. But Barry Season 4 feels like a safe bet. Thus there’s a high possibility that Barry could return.
