Before Bill Hader returns to HBO, we want to get ahead of the game to confirm if Barry has been renewed for season 5 by HBO. We also confirm the release time of the season 4 premiere and how many episodes are in the final run.

Robert Wisdom, Jessy Hodges, and Patrick Fischler have all been confirmed to star in season 4, and fans should also expect a host of cameos to be included too.

Created by Bill Hader and Alex Berg, the dark comedy-drama series, Barry, follows Hader’s titular hitman who begins to question his profession and life choices, starring Sarah Goldberg, Stephen Root, Anthony Carrigan, Henry Winkler, and more.

Has Barry been renewed for season 5 by HBO?

No, Barry has not been renewed for season 5 by HBO because the show is already confirmed to be concluding with season 4.

During Variety’s interview with star and co-creator, Bill Hader, he revealed that a “very clear ending presented itself” while writing the script for season 4: 

“It was very much in the writing and the storytelling. I mean, a lot of people after last season were like, “Why are you doing another season? It should have just ended.”

Hader was also asked what it’s like saying goodbye to the show:

“It’s kind of an ongoing goodbye right now. I mean, we’re all friends.  You know, it’s weird: Like, you say goodbye, and then people come in to do ADR. I’m gonna see Stephen and Henry tomorrow at ADR. And like I said, we’re doing reshoots.”
