Is Barry Weiss Returning To Storage Wars Season 13?
It was just announced that the popular A&E storage locker show is returning in April. Who is in the Storage Wars cast?
How about Barry Weiss, also known as “The Collector”? The OG reality star has always been a fan favorite. However, he has not been on the main show for eight years, since Season 4. He even had his show, Barry’D Treasure. That was way back in 2014. Therefore, a return is a pretty big deal.
When the announcement was first made, Storage Wars Barry was in the commercial. However, he was not included in the press release. Thanks to TMZ, it looks like they are trying to give fans a big old surprise. That is because they are now filming new episodes of the show, and Barry Weiss was seen at auctions in LA and Orange County.

Where Has Barry Weiss Been?
For Storage Wars fans that have not been in the know, Barry Weiss had a very serious motorcycle accident just two years ago. Back on April 24, 2019, he was riding his bike, with his pal, Jamie, alongside him. However, the SUV driver turned in front of him slowed down abruptly, and there was no more road left. Both crashed into the SUV, but Barry, in particular, crashed hard into the vehicle.
Worst of all, Barry sustained many serious injuries. Those include injuries to his back, his chest, and a break in his femur. This required time in intensive care and surgery. He had a long road to recovery. So, it was quite a surprise to see him make a small Storage Wars reunion in early 2020.
