Following a hiatus of three years, HBO’s dark comedy, Barry is finally back for its third season
The series made its debut in 2018. It follows the story of Berkman, aka Barry Block, played by SNL alum Bill Hader.

The show received massive appreciation from both audience and critics alike. It has amassed nearly thirty Primetime Emmy nominations for its first two seasons. Hader on the other hand won the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series twice.
