It's been over one year since foul-mouthed, lushly mulleted ex-major league pitcher Kenny Powers () was last seen on television, and spoilers:
choosing family over his dream, namely a career in major league baseball.
Luckily, the fourth season is approaching like some sort of obscenity-covered fastball with an HBO press release informing us that the season will be set several years after the third one and - rather more importantly - that it will be the final season of Eastbound and Down.
Eastbound and Down will be back Sunday, September 29 at 10 pm.
Here's the press release:
EASTBOUND & DOWN, the raucous HBO comedy series from creators Danny McBride and Jody Hill, begins shooting its eight-episode fourth and final season tomorrow in North Carolina, with the season scheduled to launch SUNDAY, SEPT. 29 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT). McBride stars in the show as the irrepressible Kenny Powers, the former major league pitcher who is larger than life… and death.
In the third season of EASTBOUND & DOWN, which concluded in April 2012, Kenny Powers finally made it back to the majors and recaptured his former glory, only to fake his own death and run back home to his beloved April, the mother of his child. The upcoming fourth season picks up the action several years later and finds Kenny living the American Dream with his family in North Carolina.
The third season of EASTBOUND & DOWN inspired raves, with People calling it “Terrific. The jokes take off on all sorts of unexpected trajectories – foul balls that score…Four out of four stars,” whileEntertainment Weekly said, “You should make time to get down with ‘Down’,” rewarding the show an A-.
EASTBOUND & DOWN is executive produced by Jody Hill, Danny McBride, Will Ferrell, Chris Henchy and Adam McKay>
