Shows that take on unique plotlines usually never fail to capture the attention of the audience. In the long list of shows of this kind, we have Barry. A show that is loved and well received by the audience; this is a comedy series that revolves around a person that kills for a living.
Barry: what you need to know
Barry is a comedy series that first premiered in 2018.
The plot of Barry follows the lead Barry Berkman, who is a former Marine from Cleveland who has now taken up the job of a hitman. While traveling to Los Angeles to deal with a target, Barry ends up finding himself in the midst of a theatre scene. Bored, lonely, and somewhat dissatisfied with his way of life, he soon becomes a part of the team. What follows this is what makes up the hilarious plotline of Barry.
Who is involved?
The cast of Barry features Bill Hader as Barry Berkman/Barry Block, Stephen Root as Monroe Fuches, Sarah Goldberg as Sally Reed, Glenn Fleshler as Goran Pazar, Anthony Carrigan as NoHo Hank, and Henry Winkler as Gene Cousineau. As you might have already noticed, Barry features a cast that is well known to the general public through one form of entertainment or the other. This could be attributed as yet another reason for the popularity of the show.
The writers involved with the show are also vast, including Bill Hader, Alec Berg, Emily Heller, Sarah Solemani, Taofik Kolade, and Elizabeth Sarnoff. The show, originally having streamed on HBO, has been nominated for various awards, including Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series.
Barry season 3: Will the show return, and what can we expect?
It has been confirmed that there is, indeed, a season 3 to the show Barry but the actual date of the premiere is something that has been much debated upon. The Coronavirus pandemic had postponed Barry’s production just like it did so many other movie and TV shows. All that said and done, the makers have announced that there is hope for the show to go back to production by January 2021 – anything prior to that being a little far-fetched.
The writing is also underway if we are to consider the point of production. At the end of season 2, we realized with much shock that Barry really was a killer in the truest sense of the word. This realization somewhat alters the initial plotline of there being an arc of redemption for the character. It would only make sense for season 3 to deal with this newly introduced plotline and work around it with the finesse we know the writers are capable of. Having already entered December, we can all heave a collective sigh of relief, knowing that January is right around the corner. The fans, having waited so long to catch a glimpse of their favorite hitman, really do deserve a new season that manages to hold on to whatever initially made them gravitate towards the show.
