'Barry' Season 3 Release Date, Cast, Trailer, and Everything Else to Know

The best show still on HBO is coming back for Season 3, but when?


Barry started slow when it first premiered on HBO in March 2018, but the series, which stars Bill Hader as an assassin trying to make it as an actor in Hollywood, hit its stride in Season 2. Now that the Season 2 finale has aired (and Game of Thrones is over forever), we’re stuck here waiting for Barry Season 3.

Here’s everything we know about Barry Season 3, from the release date, to the episode count, the possible plot details.

Is Barry Coming Back For Season 3?

Yes! Deadline reported back in April that HBO had renewed the series for a third season.

When Is the Barry Season 3 Release Date?

We don’t know, but we can probably guess. Barry Seasons 1 and 2 both premiered in March. So you can probably expect the same from Season 3, suggesting a March 2020 release date. It’s possible that means Barry could return at the same time as Westworld Season 3, which also has an unspecific “2020” release date.

Is There a Trailer for Barry Season 3?

Not yet, and it probably won’t arrive until much closer to the season premiere. However, it’s possible HBO could offer an earlier peak at Barry Season 3 in one of those promotional videos that tease a whole bunch of upcoming shows in a single montage.

How Many Episode Will Be in Barry Season 3?

We don’t officially know, but Seasons 1 and 2 both featured eight episodes. HBO didn’t announce an expanded order for Barry Season 3, so you can probably expect eight more episodes next year.


What’s the Plot of Barry Season 3

Warning: Barry Season 2 spoilers ahead.

Barry Season 2 ended on a huge cliffhanger after Monroe Fuches (Stephen Root) told Gene Cousineau (Henry Winkler) that Barry was actually the one who killed Gene’s girlfriend at the end of Season 1. The final shot shows a traumatized Gene remembering this revelation, setting up a showdown in Season 3.

Meanwhile, Sally Reed (Sarah Goldberg) sees her career take a big step forward after her theater class performance turns out to be a huge success. The lesson she learns in that moment (that the truth doesn’t matter) will likely play a big role in her development in Barry Season 3.

Finally, Fuches may have successfully turned Noho Hank (Anthony Carrigan) against Barry, setting up yet another big conflict for Barry Season 3.

March 2020 can’t come soon enough.
