Bill Hader’s Imprisoned Criminal Is ‘Irredeemable’ in ‘Barry’ Final Season Trailer (VIDEO)
It’s almost a curtain call for Bill Hader‘s Barry. The acclaimed series will return for one last ride when Season 4 debuts Sunday, April 16 on HBO and HBO Max. And in the full Barry Season 4 trailer, the bill is coming due for the criminal’s dark deeds.
In the trailer, released Wednesday, March 29, Barry sees visions of ex-girlfriend Sally (Sarah Goldberg) in his prison yard. Sally and everyone else in Barry’s sphere is reeling with the aftermath of Season 3, which saw Hader’s assassin-turned-actor murdering the girlfriend of Gene Cousineau, the acting teacher played by Henry Winkler. Check out the tension to come in the video above.
“After three masterful seasons of BARRY, we are eager for viewers to see the powerful, complex, and hilarious conclusion to Barry Berkman’s story,” Amy Gravitt, Executive Vice President of HBO & HBO Max said in a statement when Barry‘s final season was announced earlier in March. “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 network confirmed that the dark comedy will finish with its upcoming fourth season on March 7, which comes as no surprise as several actors have alluded to the series ending in recent interviews.
During a chat with the Hollywood At Home With The Creative Coalition podcast, Anthony Carrigan, who plays the lovable mobster on the show, confirmed rumors that Season 4 would be its last.
Hader also alluded to the show ending in an interview with Vulture, “There’s only so long a guy can get away with this. I know I feel watching shows sometimes, ‘They’re trying to keep the thing going and now it’s getting ridiculous to keep the thing going.’” But Barry has always been surprising, so we will have to wait until the final season to see how that resolves itself.”
SNL alum Hader co-created the series with Alec Berg, and it follows the misadventures of the titular Barry, a hired assassin with mental health issues who dreams of being an actor. But when he moves to L.A., the dark side of the town consumes him and affects everyone around him.
In Season 3, Barry wants to commit to leaving the hitman-for-hire business to pursue his acting dreams full-time. But that proves to be a job itself since it’s a hard life to walk away from cleanly.
Season 4 is set to premiere in April with eight episodes. When speaking with TV Insider, actor Henry Winkler said, “Bill’s gonna direct all eight, I think.”
The cast includes Stephen Root, Robert Wisdom, Sarah Burns, D’Arcy Carden, and Michael Irby. Check out the first images from the new episodes below.
