Bill Hader's (almost) ready for his spotlight in the first teaser for Barry’s second season

Barry’s first season was a marvel unto itself, and had the show ended with Bill Hader’s assassin-turned-actor climbing into bed after what may have been his most cold-blooded kill yet, well, it might’ve been perfect. But the premise still has so much to offer, as does the show’s deep bench of supporting characters, from Sarah Goldberg’s Sally to Henry Winkler’s Gene to Anthony Carrigan’s hysterical NoHo Hank. It’s a distinct pleasure, then, to see all of them on hand in the first teaser for the show’s second season, which looks to explore the “inherent darkness” inside our namesake antihero.

“Am I evil?” he asks Hank, whose affirmative response does well in illustrating just how well the HBO series balances its broad humor and pitch-black themes. Watch the full teaser above in advance of the season’s spring premiere.
