Barry was a critical success for HBO when it premiered in March 2018. A year later, Bill Hader is back for Barry Season 2, and its set to pick up from season one’s shocking ending.
With Barry, our favorite new series of 2018, Hader stars on a series that he co-created with Alec Berg (Silicon Valley, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld), both serving as executive producers, joined by producers Aida Rodgers and Emily Heller, along with consulting producer Liz Sarnoff. He is joined in the cast by Stephen Root, Sarah Goldberg, Henry Winkler, Glenn Fleshler, Darrell Britt-Bigson, Anthony Carrigan, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Alejandro Furth and Andy Carey.
Hader plays Barry Berkman, a former U.S. marine-turned-contract-killer, whose death-dealing travels lands him in Los Angeles. There, despite himself, he finds a surprisingly satisfying place in the performing arts as part of the theater scene as “Barry Block.” Of course, seeing as Barry kills people for a living, people with vendettas tend to catch up with him, especially since he quite literally showcases himself on a regular basis on an L.A. stage.
Episode 8, the season finale titled “berkman>block,” airs Sunday, May 19 at 10:20 p.m. on HBO. Watch the trailer below!

Barry Season 2 Story
As mentioned above, the first thing that will need to be sorted out is whether Barry actually went through with killing Detective Moss after their confrontation in the finale. From there, we’re not exactly sure where Barry’s story might go, but we expect a clash between the assassian and his “buddy” No Ho Hank, now working with the Bolivians, sooner than later. Also, we dobut we’ve seen the last of Stephen Roots’ Fuches.
