One of the most popular cast members made his return to the popular reality television series “Storage Wars.”

That popular man is Barry Weiss. Let’s take a look at his return and why he originally left the show.

When the first episode of the 14th season of the A&E series aired during November 2021, Weiss came back in style, according to TV Showcase. In fact, he arrived at the storage unit bidding site in a 1939 Lincoln Zephyr. To make things more exciting, his co-stars had not been told that he was coming back to the show.

Barry Weiss was part of “Storage Wars” when it began its very first season all the way back in 2010. He became popular with fans thanks to his attitude and sense of humor.

Barry Weiss Appeared in Other Shows During His Time Away from Series

By 2014, Weiss had left “Storage Wars” and he appeared in his own reality television shows. One of these was “Barry’d Treasure.” According to IMDb, this show aired seven episodes during 2014.

The other show Weiss worked on during his time away from “Storage Wars” was “Storage Wars: Barry Strikes Back.” This show gave fans a closer look at how Barry Weiss went about his work. He stopped this show during 2017. He said he made that decision because he wanted to leave the show while it was still popular.

It was during 2019 that Weiss was injured in a motorcycle accident. His friend, Jamie Robinson, was also reportedly involved in the accident. Robinson shared updates about Weiss on social media after the accident.

Flash forward to 2021. Barry Weiss is again entertaining fans of “Storage Wars.” And based on how he did during the first episode, it looks like he hasn’t lost a step after eight years away from the show. Even Weiss was pleased with his performance. He said he felt as if he was a “completely born-again bidder.”

During his return episode, Weiss spent $300 on a unit. His investment paid off. The items that he found in the storage unit earned him a profit of $1,500.
