How and When To Watch 'Barry' Season 3 on HBO

Bill Hader returns as the terrifying but often hilarious serial killer-come-actor Barry Berkman in Season 3 of the dark comedy Barry.

The new season of the HBO show returns this month as the characters return to deal with the utter carnage seen in the Season 2 finale. Due to the pandemic, the show has been away for over three years. In a 2021 interview with Newsweek, actor Henry Winkler confirmed that the writers used the time away to work on Season 4 too.

Ahead of the launch of the new series, here's everything you need to know about Barry Season 3.

Barry Season 3 Date and Time

There hasn't been a new episode of Barry on the air in almost three years, but luckily it's not long until a whole new season gets underway.

Season 3 of Barry begins on HBO on Sunday, April 24, at 10 p.m. ET and PT. Each subsequent episode will also launch on HBO before becoming available to watch on the network's streaming service HBO Max.

How Many Episodes Are in Barry Season 3?

The third season of Barry follows in the tradition set by the first two seasons, in terms of episode count.

HBO has confirmed that Season 3 of Barry will feature eight episodes in total. Since the first episode airs on Sunday, April 24, if there's no break in its weekly run, then the Season 3 finale of Barry will air on HBO on June 12.

What Happens in Barry Season 3?

There are plenty of loose threads for Barry to tie up in Season 3. The finale of Season 2 saw Hader's character shoot up a Buddhist monastery, killing dozens of gang members in his search for Fuches, while Gene learned the truth that Barry killed his darling Moss.

As the new season begins, early images and information released by HBO shows that Barry is back to his old ways, Sally has embarked on a successful new career, NoHo Hank has found a new relationship, and Gene has a decision to make after Fuches revealed the truth to him.
