Similar to its HBO stablemate Succession, Barry starring Bill Hader is wrapping the series up with season 4 – must be a prestige television thing – and based on the teaser trailer dropped today, the conclusion will be pretty definitive.

“It’s been an amazing journey making this show, and it’s bittersweet that the story has come to its natural conclusion,” said Bill Hader, who co-created the critically-acclaimed dark comedy with Alec Berg (Seinfeld, Silicon Valley) in addition to portraying the titular depressed hitman.

“After three masterful seasons of Barry, we are eager for viewers to see the powerful, complex, and hilarious conclusion to Barry Berkman’s story,” said Amy Gravitt, Executive Vice President (Comedy) at HBO/HBO Max.

“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 the first preview, we catch a glimpse of the continued unravelling of a newly-incarcerated Barry’s psyche during the immediate aftermath of season 3. While in prison, he’s haunted by visions/hallucinations of his ex-girlfriend Sally (Sarah Goldberg), former friend and mentor Gene Cousineau (Henry Winkler), as well as “handler” Monroe Fuches (Stephen Root).

The most intriguing detail, however, involves a beaten-up Barry making a very serious threat into the prison phone: “So help me God, if I get out of here, I’m coming for you.” At this stage, the target of said threat is anyone’s guess. But we have our theories…

Gene 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.
