It’s hard to keep going with the story of the a hitman currently serving time in jail. That’s the situation for the upcoming season 4 of Bill Hader’s HBO show Barry. The third season ended in a dramatic way, leaving the show in a tough spot.

The show is about a hitman named Barry Berkman, played by Bill Hader, who is attempting to reconcile his past as a criminal with his family life and film career.
After the shocking end of season 3, season 4 of Barry will not only attempt to continue picking up the pieces but also bring the whole show to a close, since these eight episodes are the final ones.
Since its first episode in 2018, Barry has become one of the most praised shows on TV. It has won nine Emmys, including two for Bill Hader as Outstanding Lead Actor inside a Comedy Series and one for Henry Winkler as Outstanding Supporting Actor inside a Comedy Series.
All three seasons of the show have been nominated for Exceptional Comedy Series, but it has never won.

Barry Season 4 Trailer
Barry Season 4 Plot
At the end of season 3, Gene betrayed our favourite hitman, Barry, and the police who’d been looking into to the death of Janice Moss caught him. In the trailers for season 4, we’ve shown that Barry is in jail and looks a little bit broken.
Based on the trailer, it seems like Barry will be in a fugue state for one or two episodes before he snaps out of it once he meets Fuchs throughout prison. Also, it’s clear that something bad is going on now in LA, so it looks as though it has to do with people Barry cares about.
Perhaps the Chechens as well as Bolivians had also finally gotten their act together, and so as they can’t get Barry in jail, they’re going after Gene, Sally, as well as Barry’s other friends.
Barry season 3 had a lot of storylines that weren’t finished, so Barry season 4 will have to cover a lot of ground. First of all, the latest season of Barry will have to talk about how he was arrested at the end of season 3.
Barry spent the whole season trying to get Cousineau to forgive him, yet in the end, Cousineau hoodwinked Barry into trying to kill Jim Moss, that also got Barry arrested. Barry season 4 would then definitely keep the story going.
On top of that, Jim Moss set up Fuchs to go to prison, so it’s possible that Barry and Fuchs will meet in prison.
After killing a man who was after Barry, Sally ran away to Joplin, and NoHo Hank is on the run from the Bolivian mob after he wiped them out and saved his boyfriend, Cristobal, from conversion therapy.
Barry has kept it together despite his bad behaviour, but things are starting to fall apart. This means that Barry will finally have to pay for his criminal life in season 4 of the show.
Moving on with the fourth installment in the series comes with its own set of challenges. Now that Barry is in jail, it’s time to think outside the box.
About where Season 4 is going Hader said, “Season 4 is radical in the some ways, but still it made sense for the what I think the protagonists needed to endure and what I think a whole show is constantly headed towards.”
It looks like Hader was pretty set on ending Barry after Season 4, since he said that “We could make things up to make a story. But if we keep going, Season 4 is the last one.”
But when Hader told the news to Amy Gravitt, who has been the Executive Vice President of HBO Genuine Programming for a long time, she seemed to be more than a little upset.
Gravitt, on the other hand, said, “Every choice he’s made about the story or the leaping between seasons has made sense, so I had to trust his gut on that.”
She went on to say, “Now that we’re here, it’s clear that we’re feeling nostalgic about it. Yet it truly does appear to be the correct time to end the show.”
