Barry is a dark comedy following a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest. Lonely and dissatisfied in his life, he reluctantly travels to Los Angeles to execute a hit on an aspiring actor. Barry follows his “mark” into an acting class and ends up finding an accepting community in a group of eager hopefuls within the LA theater scene. He wants to start a new life as an actor, but his criminal past won’t let him walk away - can he find a way to balance both worlds?
Barry is out for vengeance. Noho Hank faces the looming threat of being sent home. Sally makes a split-second decision on the night of the acting class' big performance. Fuches turns to an unexpected source for help.
HBO announced today that Barry has been picked up for a third season. The good news comes just two episodes into the dramedy's sophomore run, which once again has been garnering the kind of critical acclaim that helped it pick up a multitude of award wins and nominations last year.
Combining a mix of dark comedy and drama, Barry stars Bill Hader - who also co-created the series - as a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest who takes a job in Los Angeles to execute a hit on an aspiring actor. But after following his mark into acting classes, he winds up finding an accepting community within a group of LA theater scene hopefuls. This change in scenery inspires him to start a new life as an actor, but it won't be easy to just walk away from his criminal past.
Look for Season 3 of Barry to premiere around the spring of 2020.
