The first season of the HBO dark comedy/drama series ''{{Series/Barry}}'' began airing in 2018. Created by and Creator/BillHader (of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' fame) and Alec Berg (''Series/CurbYourEnthusiasm''), the first season consists of eight episodes, each thirty minutes in length. Along with creating the show, Hader also serves as its main star (in addition to writing and directing many episodes). It was ''very'' well-received upon arrival and would ultimately garner many award nominations and wins, including Outstanding Lead and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series at the [[UsefulNotes/EmmyAward 69th Annual Emmys]] for stars Bill Hader and Creator/HenryWinkler, respectively.


Season One adopts a policy of IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming, with each chapter title coming from a piece of acting advice dispensed within.

Following the rousing success of the first season, a second was ordered by HBO almost immediately. Bill Hader continues to write, direct, and star as everybody's favorite depressed hitman. This season was every bit as well-received as the first, garnering even ''more'' critical praise and award nominations; Hader himself would once again take home the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.

This season also drops half of the first's [[IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming naming convention]]; keeping the "Chapter X," format but having more esoteric story titles. There does continue to be however, just eight thirty minute-long episodes.
