It's finally time to watch Barry season 3, as one of the best HBO Max returns tonight. The dark, violent comedy returns after what feels like an eternity (three years). Yes, Bill Hader was last seen portraying the hitman-turned-aspiring actor way back in May 2019.
Barry season 3 premieres today (Sunday, April 24) at 10 p.m. ET on HBO and HBO Max.
Barry follows the titular character as he tries to leave behind his violent past for his newfound passion: theater. But untangling himself from contract killing is much harder and messier than anticipated.
Even as he attends an acting class taught by Gene Cousineau (Henry Winkler) and romances fellow acting student Sally Reed (Sarah Goldberg), Barry must still contend with figures from the criminal world, including assassin mentor Monroe Fuches (Stephen Root) and Chechen gangster NoHo Hank (Anthony Carrigan).
In Barry season 3, he must wrestle with the inner demons that led to the bloodbath at the monastery. What is it about his own psyche that led him to become a killer in the first place?
