Hader stars in, writes, executive produces, and directs the Emmy-winning comedy. His co-stars in season two include Stephen Root (Get Out) as Monroe Fuches, Sarah Goldberg (Hindsight) as Sally, Anthony Carrigan (Gotham) as Noho Hank, and Emmy winner Henry Winkler (Arrested Development) as Gene Cousineau.
The Season 2 Plot:
“Desperate to leave his violent past behind in favor of his newfound passion, Barry is attempting to untangle himself from the world of contract killing and fully immerse himself in acting. But getting out is messy. While Barry has eliminated many of the external factors that pushed him towards violence, he soon discovers they weren’t the only forces at play. What is it about his own psyche that led him to become a killer in the first place.
As season two opens, Barry struggles to focus exclusively on the theater and his girlfriend and classmate Sally, hoping against hope to rid himself of the ties that bind him to the Chechen mob group now led by Noho Hank, who ascended to the top job after Barry whacked his boss last season. Although he’s persuaded grieving acting coach Gene Cousineau to return to class, Barry is incapable of extricating himself from a violent criminal triangle involving the Chechen, Bolivian and Burmese underworlds–not to mention some deeply suspicious LA detectives.
Meanwhile, on the Midwest horizon looms Monroe Fuches, Barry’s erstwhile boss, who has found it exceedingly difficult to hire a replacement in Cleveland as capable as his onetime ace assassin.”
