In the new era of content, television shows come and go as the days pass by. Spin-off series are becoming more and more common, and streaming platforms have begun releasing full seasons of their shows the day they debut. Some shows still ascribe to the more traditional means of producing and distributing television shows however, like the HBO series Barry. The second season of Barry aired in the Spring of 2019, leaving fans waiting over two full years for any sort of update regarding the series’ impending third season. That update has finally come however, with Henry Winkler providing viewers with the first set photo to confirm that production on season three of Barry is underway.
Starring Hollywood veteran Bill Hader, Barry is a relatively new HBO series about a hitman who attempts to go straight and pursue a career as an actor. As outlandish as it may sound, the show has been a huge hit for its unique ability to couple drama and humor in a way unlike any television show before it. This is exactly why the series has amassed such an impressive fanbase after just two short seasons, and now Hader’s co-star Henry Winkler has provided the first set photos from the long awaited third season of Barry. Said photo highlights a new play being put on by Winkler as Gene Cousineau, Hader’s acting coach in the series, and can be seen below. No official release date has been set for the new season, but diehard fans are sure to be excited about the news.
After months and months of delays stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, season three of Barry is seemingly closer than anyone thought. Hader and company have been using their time wisely it seems though, finishing the script for season four of Barry before HBO could even order it. The network has since picked up this fourth season before season three could even finish production, further highlighting just how special Barry is. This news is only bound to make eager fans all the more excited, and those fans can remain on the lookout for further updates about season three of Barry.
