HBO Renews Barry for Season 4

By Jessica Lerner 

HBO has renewed the dark comedy series Barry for a fourth season.

Season 4 will begin production in Los Angeles in June, with series star Bill Hader directing all eight episodes.

Barry returned for a third season on April 24 with episodes airing weekly on HBO and HBO Max. The Season 3 finale airs on June 12.


Desperate to leave his violent past behind in favor of his newfound passion, Barry (Hader) finds himself in Season 3 “attempting to untangle himself from the world of contract killing and fully immerse himself in acting. But getting out is messy,” per the season synopsis. “While Barry has eliminated many of the external factors that pushed him towards violence, he soon discovers they weren’t the only forces at play. What is it about his own psyche that led him to become a killer in the first place? Season 3 finds Barry and the other characters trying to make the right choice.”

The cast includes series regulars Stephen Root, Sarah Goldberg, Anthony Carrigan, Henry Winkler and Sarah Burns. D’Arcy Carden and Michael Irby recur.
