In the short trailer, Barry is still caught struggling between his dreams of being an actor and his job as a former marine-turned-hitman. While Barry asserts “What I do is not who I am,” his acting teacher Gene Cousineau, played by Henry Winkler, tells him, “There is inherent darkness in you.”
In another scene, Barry asks Noho Hank if he is evil. Hank responds, “You are, like, the most evil, bad-ass person I know. Do I not tell you that enough?”
After the Season One finale, Entertainment Weekly asked co-creator Alec Berg about what audiences could look for in a second season. He said, “As Barry gets more emotionally enlightened and he starts to take apart his own psyche in pursuit of being an actor, he’s going to look deeper and find things that maybe he’s not prepared to deal with.”
Winkler and Hader, who co-created the show, both won Critics’ Choice Television Awards and Primetime Emmys for their roles on the first season of the show and, according to Metacritic, the show is universally acclaimed.
