HBO has no plans to say goodbye to "Barry" anytime soon.
Less than two weeks after the acclaimed HBO comedy's Season 2 premiere, the show has scored a Season 3 renewal. Amy Gravitt, executive vice president of HBO programming announced the news on Wednesday. HBO also celebrated the renewal on Twitter, writing in part, "The show must go on because it has literally been renewed."
"Barry" Season 1 earned multiple honors, including three Emmy Awards. The series is now in the midst of its eight-episode second season, which premiered March 31. It centers on Barry (Bill Hader), a man trying to leave contract killing behind and make a career for himself as an actor. Hader's co-stars include Henry Winkler, Stephen Root, Sarah Goldberg, and Anthony Carrigan.
"Barry" was created by Hader and Alec Berg, both of whom are executive producers. Aida Rodgers is a co-executive producer, Liz Saranoff is a consulting producer, and Emily Heller is a supervising producer. Julie Camino and Jason Kim are both producers, while co-producers are Duffy Boudrea and Amy Solomon.
Now that we're assured of a third season of "Barry," you can enjoy Season 2 without any worries on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
