What Might Happen In Barry Season 3?

The upcoming season of Barry might begin with Gene memorizing the whispers of Fuches that Barry is responsible for Janice’s death. How Gene is going to take this matter is a mystery. Will he believe Fuches?

If the answer would be yes, it poses more questions. Will Gene feel more pain, or he turns into an investigator and tries to find the truth?


Most importantly, this might lead to the closing of his acting school, which eventually influence Barry’s career as an actor.

What would be interesting to learn is how Barry gets out of that mess? Will he try to justify his innocence or confess as he doesn’t want to lie to Gene?

What is more exciting about season 3 is that we’ll see how Barry controls the Fuches as he becomes a problem for him and vice versa. Will all these affect his relationship with Sally?

Looking at all these speculations, one thing can be sure thatBarry Season 3 will be more enjoyable with twists, surprises, and comedy. So we just need to wait for the third season to release if our assumptions are correct.

According to Stephen Root’s meeting with Collider, the team is hoping that HBO will approve the fourth season before resuming the shooting for season 3 so that they can get two giggles from one tickle.

But, it’s risky for both HBO and the production team. It might be hard to compose season 4 before recording the third season. Moreover, what if this causes Season 4 to be hastened? The producers can also divide season 3 into two segments, rather than two separate seasons.
