Bill Hader Insists He’s a Good Person in Trailer for Final Season of ‘Barry’ (Video)
A new, full-length trailer for “Barry” Season 4 has arrived, offering a closer look at what to expect from the final eight episodes of the Emmy-winning half-hour series. Hader’s Barry is in jail following the Season 3 finale’s big sting operation, and we get glimpses of how those around Barry – Sally (Sarah Goldberg), Gene (Henry Winkler), Fuches (Stephen Root) and Hank (Anthony Carrigan) – are dealing with this new development.
“The guy I was dating in LA killed my acting teacher’s girlfriend,” Sally is heard saying in the trailer, followed by, “I think I might be in a lot of trouble.”
Barry is in jail, seen really laying it on himself as he deals with the consequences of his actions. Fuches is also in jail, and it appears as though he’s in the same prison as Barry.
Hader directed all eight episodes of this final season after making his directing debut on the show’s pilot, and then helming additional (and usually standout) episodes in each season. The decision to end the series came from Hader and the show’s producers and writers as they began plotting out the fourth season.
