After a solid premiere week for Barry, Season 4 held strong once again with 606,000 total same-day viewers across platforms, HBO said.

The first two episodes of the season, which debuted after Succession on April 16, are signaling strong delayed viewing for Barry. They’ve now been watched by an average of about 2.5M people, which is nearly four times their same-day audience. Episode 1 debuted to 710,000 viewers and Episode 2 drew 550,000 viewers across HBO Max and linear telecasts.

The Roy family saga picks up as the sale of media conglomerate Waystar Royco to tech visionary Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgård) looms. The prospect of the seismic sale provokes existential angst and familial division among the Roys: patriarch Logan Roy (Brian Cox) and his four grown children, Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Siobhan (Sarah Snook), Roman (Kieran Culkin) and Connor (Alan Ruck). A hopefully Roy-esque power struggle will ensue as the family weighs up a future where their cultural and political weight is threatened.
