The show centered around the hitman-actor hybrid is set to return for its final eight-episode season on Sunday, April 16 with the premiere of two new episodes. HBO will release a new episode every Sunday until the series finale on May 28.
Hader, who is the star, co-creator, writer, director, and executive producer of Barry, spoke to Variety about choosing to conclude the show because “a very clear ending presented itself”.
he official Season 4 description says, “Cousineau (Henry Winkler) is hailed as a hero as Barry’s (Bill Hader) arrest has shocking consequences. It’s all been leading up to this – the explosive and hilarious final chapter of Barry.” Barry Season 3 ended with Barry in handcuffs, with his years of killing finally catching up to him. One could probably be convinced that this is a natural ending point for the show, but Hader had more story to tell.
