One of the best shows of the year has been officially renewed to come back for a second season. HBO renewed their new show Barry on Thursday, and fans were ecstatic. The show is due to return with a still unknown number of episodes in 2019, although HBO has not announced an official return date yet.
Silicon Valley, another of Alex Berg’s creations, has also been renewed.
HBO announced the renewal on Twitter, confirming what some fans had been speculating for several days. It seems neither Bill Hader nor Alec Berg were at the San Francisco Film Festival despite being scheduled to be there, and they had informed the fans they were currently writing season 2.

Barry is only three episodes in, but the reviews have been stellar since the first episode aired, ratings have been positive thus far, and rumors of it being nominated for several Emmy awards are already flying around. With these odds, it would’ve been an awful mistake on HBO’s part not to renew it.
Count us in as excited and nervous for season 2!
