Barry returns for Season 2 this Sunday, March 31st on HBO. The second season will consist of 8 episodes.
Decider said:What Barry, returning to HBO this Sunday night, pulls off for its second season is just on another level of greatness. Because it turns out the first season, which balanced darkness (like, deaths) and comedy (like, really funny), wasn’t just a fluke. Creator (along with Alec Berg) and star Bill Hader has figured out the formula, bottled it up, and unleashed it all on us once again for a brilliant sophomore season.
THR said:Through its first three episodes of the season, Barry has simply become a half-hour drama, albeit one with occasional snarky jabs at the entertainment industry and a Chechen mobster with alopecia, but a drama nonetheless. I miss the punchlines, while finding plenty to admire in the show's not-totally-new incarnation.

Collider said:Everything about the series is so carefully crafted, though, that even its smallest moments are pure joy (most especially when it riffs on cut-rate movies and TV series in the roles Sally and others get). But there is never a danger of superficiality, even when a recurring theme is how Barry is able to achieve this duel life largely because the people around him are so self-absorbed.
