To move out of the world of crime isn’t something easy. It comes with even bigger challenges than one faces while entering that dark place.

Sweeping the killer instincts under the rug, trying to learn how to compromise, weighing human emotions that aren’t anger and violence, learning empathy and compassion, leaving the bad company behind and the list goes on. These are just a few things out of a lot one has to do when deciding to leave the criminal past behind. And none of it is even remotely simple.

All of the above said things are the part of Barry Berkman’s story who decides to move out of his life as an assassin and pursue acting. Created by Alec Berg and Bill Hader, Barry is a dark comedy-drama starring Bill Hader. It is produced by Liz Sarnoff, Emily Heller, Sarah Solemani, Ben Smith, Kris Baucom, Megan Murphy, Amy Solomon, and more.

Barry Season 3 Trailer

The trailer for Barry Season 3 gives an insight into the chaos and dilemma Barry finds himself in when the ghosts from his past their their best to sabotage the present he is trying to build. 

Barry doesn’t have an impressive track record in terms of law and order but who says people can’t change. If not all at once, he tries to slither out of the ‘lawless’ life he was leading as an assassin. However, it has never been easy for anybody and for him, especially because of the kind of people he kept close back then. 

Barry Season 3 Plot

Barry is a discharged marine who, under the influence of Fuches, started going as a hitman. However, he didn’t seem to find a sense of peace and fulfillment one expects from life and he feels like he is nowhere near it.

For one of his assignments, he traveled to Los Angeles and joined an acting class. There he found himself in a group of aspiring actors where he eventually started feeling at the right place. He started feeling human connections and decided to get out of his violent profession. But is it going to be that easy for him or people from his past will keep pulling him back into the quicksand of crime? All of this and more might be explored in Barry Season 3.
