Though Succession will be premiering new episodes all throughout April, HBO has a smattering of other options coming out. Want back-to-back Sunday night shows to fill The Last of Us void? Try pairing the Roys with Barry, which returns for its final season next month as well.

What’s the deal with fourth seasons? Both Succession and Barry have will wrap after Season 4, according to HBO. In the recent trailer teasing the upcoming season of Bill Hader’s dark comedy, which premieres on April 16, Barry Berkman has landed in prison for a slew of murders. There’s really nowhere to go after prison, so perhaps this sad news of a final season makes total sense.

Luckily, there’s plenty of newer content coming to fill the Barry-shaped hole in our hearts. Somebody Somewhere is returning for a sophomore season on HBO on April 23, with Bridget Everett and Jeff Hiller set to reprise their roles as Sam and Joel. The first season currently holds a rare 100% on Rotten Tomatoes—catch up now, if you haven’t already.

To round out April, HBO has one! More! Show! The list seems never ending. Love & Death will premiere on April 27, following the exact same story as Jessica Biel’s true crime Hulu series Candy from 2022. After steamy affairs and a passive aggressive friendship, a brutal ax murder tears a small Texas town apart.

There are a million other shows returning and premiering this April, so keep reading to see what HBO and HBO Max are adding to the lineup.
