HBO’s Barry is set to return with a new season. The award-winning dark comedy series starring Bill Hader is set to return for a third season shortly. Season 2 ended over three years ago, so fans are eager for Barry to return. Barry follows marine-turned-hitman Barry Berkman (Bill) as he attempts to put his criminal past behind him by pursuing an acting career in Los Angeles. Bill, 43, and Alec Berg co-created the programme, which first aired in March of this year. It has received acclaim from reviewers and has won multiple Emmy Awards, including two for Bill for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.
Barry’s second season concluded on a significant cliffhanger. Gene Cousineau (Henry Winkler), Barry’s acting teacher/mentor, ultimately heard through Monroe Fuches (Stephen Root) that Barry had killed his lover, Detective Janice Moss (Paula Newsome). Barry swore to assassinate Fuches, his old hitman employer and embarked on a homicidal spree that resulted in the deaths of over a dozen criminals. Barry finally revealed his criminal background after concealing it for so long. Season 3 began with an epic conclusion that established the tone for the rest of the season. Here’s all we know so far about Barry’s forthcoming season.
When will the third season of Barry be released?
Barry season 3 has yet to be given a specific release date. HBO announced in December 2021 that the programme would return in 2022, however, the network did not specify which month. Season 3 is expected as released on 23, July 2022, as the previous two seasons did. Once it returns, the programme is anticipated to run weekly on HBO and HBO Max.
In April 2019, during the second season’s broadcast, Barry was officially renewed for a third season. Season 3 filming started in March 2020 but was abruptly halted due to the COVID-19 epidemic. In January 2021, Bill spoke on Late Night With Seth Meyers to address the COVID delays. “The last time I was in a room with a lot of people was for the table read for Season 3’s first and second episodes, and we were all set to go.” “And suddenly it was all turned off,” he said. “Season 3 is totally written and ready to go, and we actually wrote season 4 at this period.” So we’ve completed both of those tasks. “All we have to do now is wait till we can resume filming.” While the programme hasn’t been formally renewed for a fourth season, HBO and HBO Max CCO Casey Bloys claimed in February 2021 that it’s a “solid bet” that Barry will be renewed.
According to Entertainment Weekly, production on Barry season 3 began in August 2021. At the moment, HBO posted a picture of Henry, 76, and Bill beaming together on set. So, Barry Season 3 is Expected as released on 23, July 2022.

Cast and Crew of Barry Season 3
For season 3, we already know that Bill and Henry will reprise their roles as Barry and Gene, respectively. Stephen, 70, is a shoo-in to reprise his role as the wicked Fuches. Barry’s acting student and fiancée Sally Reed (Sarah Goldberg) and Chechen mafia member NoHo Hank are two more important characters who should return for season 3. (Anthony Carrigan).
Some of Gene’s acting pupils, such as Natalie (D’Arcy Carden), Sasha (Kirby Howell-Baptiste), Jermaine (Darrell Britt-Gibson), and Eric (Andy Carey), as well as Gene’s estranged son Leo, may make an appearance (Andrew Leeds). While Barry murdered most of the mafia in the season 2 finale, Cristobal (Michael Irby) escaped, thus he should return for season 3. HBO has yet to announce any new characters, although there is still time for that to happen.
The countdown to Barry season 3 has begun!
