Surprise! Eastbound & Down Is Renewed

Get More: News, Renewals

Just like a blonde Kenny Powers, Eastbound & Down is back from the dead.

Though it appeared as though the third season might be the HBO comedy’s last, TVLine has confirmed that the Danny McBride-starring series is suiting up for an eight-episode Season 4.

In last season’s finale – which drew 1.6 million viewers — former pro baseball pitcher Kenny finally got called back up to the big leagues. But he walked away from it all, faked his death and returned to Myrtle Beach to be with April and their son.

Speculation about the show’s demise ran rampant. McBride, though, always left the door open, saying in this HBO Q&A that “as long as [Kenny Powers] is alive, there are a lot of stories you could tell.”

  • Did not see that one coming! The last season felt pretty final but if they think there’s more stories then let’s have it.

  • I can’t see how they can continue this show without undermining the excellent third season finale, which should have been the series finale.

  • I think the 4 th season should start with kenny coaching Toby’s little league team. Toby would need to be the best player on the team (baseball prodigy) or the worst player on the team with kenny not realizing it. Stevie would be an assistant coach.

  • I am so glad this show is returning with a fourth season! Very few shows are really funny anymore. I seen one episode for the first time this summer and I am addicted. Please keep this one on HBO!

  • Big fan of the show but Season 3 was absolutely awful…let’s hope they put some thought and effort into making Season 4 in the vein of Seasons 1 & 2.
