Critic Consensus: Barry follows up a pitch-perfect debut with a second season that balances darkness with comedy while steering clear of antihero overindulgence.

News & Interviews for Barry: Season 2
"Barry" can be unsettling in the way that it leads us into laughing at levels of violence and dark subjects that aren't typically sources of TV comedy. But the show then turns around and asks its own tough questions.
It sounds like a precious premise. But great work from Hader and Henry Winkler as his acting teacher elevates the story to something that stuck with me stubbornly all year.
Barry is dark but hilarious and a worthy binge ahead of a third season.
Barry's mission isn't to bust all the stereotypes it encounters, but the ones it bothers to dismantle have yielded such ingenuity and charm that it's a shame the show doesn't think just a little bigger.
In its second season, Barry is sadder, with the gap between its madcap Chechen gangster plots and interludes of moral reckoning proving even more yawning.
