The dark comedy Barry will return for a third season.
Multiple outlets confirm that HBO has renewed Barry for an additional and third season. The news comes just two weeks after the show’s second season premiered on March 31st.
Barry, co-created by Bill Hader and Alec Berg, follows the titular character, played by Hader, a hitman who discovers a passion for acting when he comes to Los Angeles on a job. The series also stars Stephen Root, Sarah Goldberg, Anthony Carrigan, and Henry Winkler.
Season two follows Barry as he attempts to untangle himself from the world of contract killing and fully immerse himself in acting. But he then discovers that the external factors are the only forces as play.
The HBO series won three Emmys for its first season, including acting nods for Hader and Winkler. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the first two episode of Barry’s sophomore run have averaged 478,000 viewers down from season one’s 587,000.
