After arriving in Los Angeles and trying to make his way as an actor, Barry Berkman (Bill Hader) found it impossible to give up his main gig as an assassin. In the fourth and final season of Barry, the would-be actor/actual hit man has finally gotten his comeuppance at the hands of his acting teacher Gene Cousineau (Henry Winkler) and now finds himself in prison.
“It’s been an amazing journey making this show, and it’s bittersweet that the story has come to its natural conclusion,” said multiple Emmy-winner Hader – who stars, co-creates, writes, directs and executive produces – in a statement.
The season-four teaser trailer is set to The Walker Brothers’ “After the Lights Go Out.”
Besides Hader and Winkler, Barry also stars Stephen Root as Monroe Fuches, Sarah Goldberg as Barry’s on-again, off-again girlfriend Sally, Anthony Carrigan as Noho Hank and Robert Wisdom as Jim Moss. Returning recurring guest cast include Michael Irby as Cristobal, Fred Melamed as Tom Posorro, Andrew Leeds as Leo, Patrick Fischler as Lon Oneil and Jessy Hodges as Lindsay.
Alec Berg co-created the series with Hader and also executive produces along with Aida Rogers and Liz Sarnoff. Duffy Boudreau co-executive produces and Julie Camino produces. Hader directed all of the series’ final eight episodes. He also writes along with Sarnoff, Boudreau, Taofik Kolade, Emma Barrie, Mark Ashmore and Nicky Hirsch.
“After three masterful seasons of Barry, we are eager for viewers to see the powerful, complex and hilarious conclusion to Barry Berkman’s story,” said Amy Gravitt, executive vice president of HBO and HBO Max comedy programming, in a statement. “It has been a pleasure working with this immensely talented team including Bill Hader, Alec Berg, Aida Rodgers and the entire exceptional cast and crew.”
The fourth and final season of HBO’s Barry debuts Sunday, April 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.
