HBO announced today that Barry will be coming to an end after its upcoming fourth season. The news comes just over a month before the dark comedy returns for its now-final 8-episode run.

"After three masterful seasons of Barry, we are eager for viewers to see the powerful, complex and hilarious conclusion to Barry Berkman's story. 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," said Amy Gravitt, Executive Vice President, HBO and HBO Max Comedy.

Combining a mix of dark comedy and drama, Barry stars Bill Hader - who also co-created the series - as a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest who takes a job in Los Angeles to execute a hit on an aspiring actor. But after following his mark into acting classes, he winds up finding an accepting community within a group of LA theater scene hopefuls. This change in scenery inspires him to start a new life as an actor, but it won't be easy to just walk away from his criminal past.

Season 4 of Barry premieres on April 16.
