Plot Synopsis

Created, executive produced and written by Alec Berg and series star Bill Hader, BARRY is a half-hour dark comedy series that centers on Barry, a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest. Barry's handler, Fuches, sends him to Los Angeles to execute a hit for the Chechen mob, led by Goran Pazar, and his right-hand man, NoHo Hank, a brutal but unfailingly polite sidekick. Barry's target: an aspiring actor who is having an affair with Pazar's wife. Barry follows his "mark" into an acting class taught by beloved teacher/guru Gene Cousineau, who takes Barry under his wing. Barry is instantly drawn to the group of students, especially Sally, a dedicated acting student. Barry wants to start a new life in the class, but the criminal world won't let him walk away so easily, especially when Fuches becomes alarmed to contemplate a future without his primary source of income.
On Sunday, May 13, 2018 at 10:45pm ET/PT, HBO premiered the Season 1 finale of BARRY. In the season ender, "Chapter Eight: Know Your Truth," written by Alec Berg & Bill Hader and directed by Alec Berg, Barry vows to give up his life of crime, once and for all. Pazar enlists Vacha's replacement to take care of Fuches. Moss and her team close in on a major arrest with hopes of finally cracking the Madison case. One month earlier -- on April 12 -- HBO renewed BARRY for a second season.
