Bill Hader’s (very) dark comedy, Barry has established itself as some of the most ambitious entertainment out there over the course of two seasons on HBO. What began as a witty comedy with a great hook. A murderer is hired to assassinate an ambitious actor and becomes bitten by the showbiz bug himself ended up as an examination of whether a person can ever truly overcome their violent nature.
And it turns out that a “violent piece of trash” will stay that way. Barry is absolutely unique, combining a brilliant spoof of acting school clichés with absurdism in the guise of some entertaining Chechen mobsters.
It was inevitable that the program would be renewed for a third season after its Season 2 cliffhanger, and luckily, it was in May 2019. After Season 2 ended, fans were yearning for more episodes, but now that it’s been years since the show aired, more Barry couldn’t be more eagerly anticipated. As the premiere of Season 3 approaches, we’re going through everything we know so far.
When will Barry Season 3 be released?
After a long wait, we now know when Barry Season 3 will premiere. In February 2022, HBO announced that the show would return on Sunday, April 24.
Due to the epidemic, it was delayed, as was the case with many other shows. When COVID-19 struck, the show was in pre-production, and everything had to be shut down. When the cast was alerted about the delay, Henry Winkler told PeopleTV in April 2020 that they were all set to have their second table read.
It wasn’t until the summer and fall of 2021 that the series was able to begin production and filming. While it’s been a while, the good news is that the program is finally returning, and Season 4 has officially been confirmed. In a January 2021 interview with Seth Meyers, Bill Hader revealed that he had already written Season 4 in its entirety, despite the fact that filming had not yet begun. We’ll take any Barry that comes our way!

Will Barry Season 3 introduce any new characters?
Possibly, although no new casting has been reported as of yet. Expect to see some recognized faces. Of course, Barry and Gene will clash. Barry’s fiancée Sally (Sarah Goldberg) had an unexpected win on stage, and Fuches and Noho Hank both survived Barry’s rampage and are still in the mix.
What will be the focus of Season 3 of Barry?
It’ll almost certainly be dreary and dark. Barry Season 2 concluded on a sour note, as you may recall. There’s no doubting that the titular character is a terrible guy with a capital B. As demonstrated by the monastery full of criminals that he murdered in cold blood out of wrath at his handler Fuches, he is not a reformed killer; he is a killer-killer (Stephen Root).
Furthermore, he permits Gene Cousineau (Winkler), his acting instructor, to be arrested for the death of Cousineau’s girlfriend—a murder that Barry himself committed. Cousineau discovers that his student is a cold-blooded killer in the final minutes of the show, exclaiming, “Oh my god,” as the credits roll.
According to Variety, Hader teased this ambiguous promise when collecting an award from USC in April 2021: “So much of it comes down to following your emotions and remaining true to your characters. You get both amusing and tragic results as a result of doing so.”
Anthony Carrigan, alias Noho Hank, predicted “very dangerous stuff [coming], but the dangerous stuff makes for the most incredible stuff” in an interview with PopCulture.com.
