Barry Season 3 release date, time, plot, cast, and trailer for Bill Hader’s HBO series

Following a long hiatus, the off-beat crime drama is back with more murder and mayhem

After an absence of nearly three years, HBO’s popular dark comedy, Barry, is back for its third season.

Hopefully fans haven’t moved on from this wickedly funny show revolving around ex-hitman Barry Berkman (Bill Hader), who’s now trying to make it as an actor, as the major cliffhanger from May 2019’s Season 2 finale will finally be explored.

When we last saw Berkman, aka Barry Block, the budding thespian went on a rampage in a Burmese monastery and was unmasked as a dangerous murderer to his friend and acting coach, Gene Cousineau (Henry Winkler) thanks to Fuches whispering the truth in his ear. How Gene responds to this ugly revelation will likely drive the action of the belated third season.

Let’s dig into the details of Barry Season 3.

When will Barry Season 3 be released?

Barry Season 3 kicks off on Sunday, April 24 at 10 pm EST exclusively on HBO and HBO Max.

Barry may be a murderer, but he’s still easier to put up with than most theater students.


How many episodes will there be in Barry Season 3?

Barry Season 3 will consist of eight episodes released every Sunday.

Who stars in Barry Season 3?

Bill Hader reprises his role as conflicted hitman-turned-actor Barry Berkman.

What is the plot of Barry Season 3?

HBO’s description of Barry Season 3 says we’ll see Barry attempting to flee further from his violent history and establish himself as a legitimate actor. However, escaping homicidal entanglements won’t be an easy task. While trying to leave his old life behind, Barry ruminates on his violent instincts and tries to make better choices.
