Let’s dive in.       

Story Of The Previous Seasons

Before talking about Barry Season 3, let’s take a quick look at the overview of the previous seasons.

This is the story of a hitman who dreams to be an actor. Weird, isn’t it? Well, the creators came up with this weirdly designed plot which hooked us with the last two seasons for the past two years.

What Happened In Season 1?

What Happened Barry  In Season 1

In Season 1, Barry Berkman was firstly introduced as a hitman who went to Los Angeles to kill someone as per contract. But to keep an eye on his target, he found himself joining the acting class.

Even though he was trying to let go of this extra workload of acting as a different person, he was inspired by another student in the class. Sally Reed became the first person to make him consider a second thought about his way of living.

With lots of funny punch lines and many more action scenes, the first season was full of unpredictable turns of events. Barry fell in love with Sally, started to think that he would pursue an acting career while carrying on the criminal activities as well.

But it is known to all that being a hitman and an actor is not an easy task. Therefore, with all the honesty in his heart, he told everything about his dark background to his acting teacher Gene Cousineasu.

Now, Gene who was not sure about Barry’s acting skills at first saw a hidden potential and thought that he was saying a monologue purposefully.

Throughout the season, Barry kept himself busy with killing people without any remorse and dealt with other contract assassins (a few of them were sent for killing him). Other gangsters, named Monroe Fuches and Noho Hank gave him a bad time in season 1 indeed.

However, it took an ugly turn when Barry was found out by Detective Moss who was the girlfriend of Gene. Unfortunately, she was investigating a murder case for which Barry was responsible. Season 1 ended with Barry’s grief because he didn’t have any choice but to kill her to hide his real identity.

What Happened In Season 2?

In Season 2 opening, the acting class faced difficulties as Gene was distracted in thoughts of his lost girlfriend. Berry tried to convince Sally and the other teammates to continue with the play but suddenly Gene came and told them that he had no wish for the play to go on.

On the other hand, in Barry’s hometown Cleveland, Noho Hank, and Cristobals’s formed a new partnership since they killed Goran. And Barry’s boss Fuches tried to replace Barry with another hitman which was not an easy task.

Why? Because no one can get the job done with perfection like Barry!

Some of the backstories of both Barry’s and Sally’s were shown in this season. As they both prepare for a big scene, Barry got Gene’s help which created a lot of funny moments. But the act was amazing at the end.

So, did he become an actor? Hell, no. that would be the end of the story. Season 2 ends with a cliffhanger of Barry looking for Fuches. As Fuches was the one who told Gene about the actual location of his dead girlfriend and maybe who killed her as well.

Barry Season 3

Is Barry Season 3 Cancelled?

Season 2 ended with such suspense that it would be a crime not to finish the story off with another season. The announcement of starting the shooting was first in April 2020. But sadly, the spread of Coronavirus was at a peak rate back then. Hence, the production went on a hiatus.

Bill Harder did an amazing job as the director, co-writer as well as the leading role in Barry. Obviously, he is concerned about the health issue of all the cast and crew. But it is certain that the production will gear up as soon as the end of the pandemic.

Therefore, keep calm and wait for the premiere of Barry Season 3. If the writers get more time, the more of Barry we will find in the upcoming season.

Bill Hader showed his excellent talent in this dark comedy TV series as well and said that he enjoyed being Barry on the screen because it did not show the conventional cool hitman theme.
