Barry Season 4 is the last hit of the HBO comedy series.
HBO announced today that the final season will premiere on April 16 and end when its eight episodes air.
“It’s been an incredible journey to create this show, and it’s bittersweet that the story has come to its natural conclusion,” Hader said in a brief statement.
“After three brilliant seasons of Barry, we are excited for viewers to see the powerful, complex and hilarious conclusion to Barry Berkman’s story,” said Amy Gravitt, HBO/HBO Max Executive VP Comedy. “It was a pleasure to work with this incredibly talented team including Bill Hader, Alec Berg, Aida Rodgers and the entire incredible cast and crew.”
Barry is a dark comedy starring Bill Hader as a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest, who suddenly finds himself invested in acting when he discovers an accepting community in a group of excited hopefuls within the LA theater scene. The series also stars Stephen Root (HBO’s All Roads), Sarah Goldberg (view), Glenn Fleshler (HBO’s True Detective), Anthony Carrigan (Gotham), and Henry Winkler (Arrested Development).
“Cousineau (Winkler) is hailed as a hero because the capture of Barry (Hader) has shocking consequences. This all leads up to this – the explosive and funny final chapter of Barry,” reads the season 4 logline.
Barry created, directed, and written by Alec Berg (HBO’s Silicon Valley) and Bill Hader. Executive producers are Berg, Hader, Aida Rodgers, and Liz Sarnoff with Julie Camino producing.
