Surprise! Eastbound & Down Is Renewed

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.

    Huzzah! I’ve missed Kenny Powers even in this short time, great we’re gonna get new episodes.

  7. AJ says:

    Wow I thought the plan was to end it after this season. Still, I’ll take all the KP I can get.

    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 knew it, I don’t know how but I did
    Btw KP went back to Shelby not MYRTLE BEACH!

    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.
