There’s no doubt about the fact that the entertainment industry is one of the worst-hit by the spread of COVID-19. Some shows had to stop their production for months and some even for a year. What’s more is that a few shows had to briefly halt their shooting after restarting it because members of the crew tested positive for the virus that hit the pause button on the world. Alec Berg and Bill Hader’s dark comedy Barry met with the same fate. In fact, fans have now been waiting for 17 months for the show to return. Is the show starting production any time soon? Or has it already resumed? Read on further to find out and get additional details about this award-winning comedy show.
Barry has begun production for Season 3
Fans, now is the time to do your celebratory dance! Your favorite show is finally coming back. Barry star Henry Winkler, who plays the acting coach/ teacher Gene Cousineau, took to twitter and shared a photo marking the announcement of the beginning of the production.

The team of Barry had almost begun production. The cast and crew had even sat down for the table read of the first two episodes. Everyone knows what happened after that; the pandemic drove everyone to stay at their homes.
The best thing that has come out of this whole thing, however, is that the creators have already made a script for a fourth season of the show. The news comes even before HBO has given a green light for the production and creation season 4. But, HBO has issued a statement that said renewing Barry for a fourth season is a safe bet. So, it is likely that the show will be on for at least another 2 years.
What is the plot of the third season of Barry?
The entire show is about a hitman, Barry Berkman, played by Bill Hader, who comes to Los Angeles for his ‘’work’’. Things slowly start to take a different turn when he ends up getting an acting role. He then decided to pursue drama and acting and gives up his criminal life.
In the end of the second season, we see Gene remembering something about Barry’s criminal mentor, Fuches (Stephen Root). He whispered that Barry killed his lover Janice Moss who was an LAPD detective. With a cliffhanger like that, it surely must be hard to wait for a year and a half to see what is in store for the characters next.
In the photo attached in Henry Winkler’s tweet, we see the promotional poster of his new play which he has produced and will also act in. The play titled “The Elephant Man” is about a man with a disfigured face who has been categorized as a monster by those around him. But, he is a person with a lot of empathy and kindness in his heart.
When can Season 3 air?
No air date has been announced yet. However, the show will most likely return by the spring of 2022. Season 4 might not be far behind too.
