HBO has announced the premiere date for the second season of their Emmy winning and critically-acclaimed series Barry.

The announcement also came with a new clip from the season two which you check out in the player below.
Barry is a dark comedy starring Bill Hader as a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest. Lonely and dissatisfied in his life, he reluctantly travels to Los Angeles to execute a hit on an aspiring actor. Barry follows his “mark” into an acting class and ends up finding an accepting community in a group of eager hopefuls within the LA theater scene. He wants to start a new life as an actor, but his criminal past won’t let him walk away – can he find a way to balance both worlds?
The series also stars Stephen Root (HBO’s All the Way), Sarah Goldberg (Hindsight), Glenn Fleshler (HBO’s True Detective), Anthony Carrigan (Gotham) and Henry Winkler (Arrested Development).
The series was created, executive produced and written by Alec Berg (HBO’s Silicon Valley) and Bill Hader, and produced by Aida Rogers. The series won three Emmy awards including Best Actor in a comedy for Hader and Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy for Winkler.
