HBO Gets Extra Innings for EASTBOUND & DOWN with a Fourth Season Order

     July 2, 2012

Kenny Powers is not dead…in more ways than one.  He wasn’t dead at the end of what was supposed to be the series finale after faking his death and coming back to be with his estranged love April and their child Toby.  And now he lives on back at HBO again as the cable network has picked up a fourth season of Eastbound & Down with Danny McBride back as everyone’s favorite foul-mouthed, morally questionable ball player.  I guess that explains why the network was so hellbent on calling the last episode of Eastbound & Down a season finale rather than a series finale.

It’s not clear whether this fourth season will actually be the last now, but Variety says it will have eight episodes just like the previous third season.  I don’t know how HBO convinced Jody Hill, David Gordon Green and McBride to do another season as they seemed pretty keen on ending on a high note, but it’s happening.  The question is where will the series go now that Kenny Powers is supposed to be dead?  I can’t imagine he’ll go back to baseball again, but that always took a backseat to his personal problems anyway. As a big fan of the show, I supposed it’ll be nice to have McBride back as Kenny Powers, but I was already fine with the way the series ended, so I hope this won’t be a sad encore for the hilarious comedy series.
