HBO has released the first trailer for season four of Barry, which Bill Hader recently confirmed will be the final season of the hit black comedy.
Season four picks right up where season three left off, which saw Barry finally apprehended by police — thanks to a plot from Gene Cousineau — for his litany of crimes. Now, in season four, Barry finds himself fighting for his life in prison.
Here is the official logline for season four of Barry, courtesy of HBO:
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.
The final season of Barry, which premieres on HBO on Sunday, April 16 at 10 p.m. EST, will consist of eight episodes and will conclude with the series finale on Sunday, May 28 . Here’s what Hader had to say about the Emmy-winning series that he created and stars in coming to an end, calling the conclusion a “natural” one:
“It’s been an amazing journey making this show, and it’s bittersweet that the story has come to its natural conclusion.”
HBO Comedy Programming Executive Vice President Amy Gravitt echoed Hader’s sentiment in her statement:
“After three masterful seasons of BARRY, we are eager for viewers to see the powerful, complex and hilarious conclusion to Barry Berkman’s story. 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.”
In addition to Bill Hader — who directed all of the episodes in the final season — as the titular Barry, the series stars Sarah Goldberg, Anthony Carrigan, Henry Winkler, Stephen Root, D’Arcy Carden, and more.
Barry isn’t the only beloved HBO show set to conclude after its fourth season this Spring, as fellow Emmy winner Succession will also be wrapping up its story following its next batch of episodes.
