Bill Hader says the writers room for 'Barry' Season 3 opens in October + teases a "big thing" that didn't make Season 1 or 2 that he hopes to get to next year. https://t.co/CL2TRUeGQk— Collider (@Collider) August 27, 2019
- bill hader is currently on the press tour for it: chapter two (op note: a.k.a.: its) but answered some questions about the upcoming season of his hit emmy award winning hbo comedy, barry.
- [bill hader] “for us, it feels like you’re telling a story chapter by chapter and then you have like a year off between chapters, and people are responding to where it is at this moment. in [co-showrunner] alec [berg] and i’s mind it’s like we see this kind of bigger story that we’re trying to write, and it’s constantly shifting too. in two weeks i go into an office with liz sarnoff, one of our writers, and we just are gonna start working on season 3 just the two of us while alec is wrapping up silicon valley, then the writers room starts in earnest in october. that’s where my head’s at.”
- hader said the show isn’t planned too far in advance; mapping out each season has been an organic process, but he did reveal that there’s a significant plot point that may or may not arise in season 3, which will mark a significant turning point: “each year [we] see where the writing takes us. there’s a big thing in the show that is part of our initial idea when we first sat down and talked about it that we’ve never gotten to. every season i’ve written it up on the board and we put enough story in front of it that it just gets knocked off the board and we’re like, ‘oh i guess we’re gonna have to put that in the next season,’ and then season 2 i put it up there and it just keeps getting knocked off the board. in two weeks i’m gonna [put it back up on the board] and we’re gonna see if we get to that, and i think that’ll be an important thing to know where you take off from there or if you just kinda wrap it up.”
- whatever this big development is, whether it finally occurs in season 3 or not, it seems like it sets barry on a course towards some kind of endgame.
ontd, how are you getting your baeder fix, are you excited for its?
