The Danny McBride-led half-hour is back for eight final episodes.
Hit HBO Comedy Series "Eastbound & Down" Returns For Fourth Season Sept. 29
On the previous season of Eastbound & Down, 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.
Fast-forward several years later, and Kenny's living the American Dream with his family in North Carolina. What could spoil their suburban paradise?
From creators Danny McBride and Jody Hill, Eastbound & Down returns for its eight-episode fourth and final season Sunday, Sept. 29 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, followed by other episodes on subsequent Sundays at the same time.
McBride stars as the irrepressible Kenny Powers, a former major league pitcher trying to balance family and awesomeness. The new comedy series "Hello Ladies," starring Stephen Merchant, debuts immediately following the season debut.
Eastbound & Down also stars Steve Little as Stevie, Kenny's faithful sidekick; Katy Mixon as Kenny's wife, April, the mother of their two kids; John Hawkes as Kenny's brother, Dustin; and Elizabeth De Razzo as Maria, Stevie's wife. Guest stars on the fourth season include Tim Heidecker as Gene and Ken Marino as talk-show host Guy Young.
Bored with his dead-end job and suburban lifestyle, Kenny Powers - now married to April and the father of two - ponders a career move after partying with Guy Young, a former teammate and current host of a raucous TV talk show.
Written by Hayes Davenport, Jody Hill & Danny McBride; directed by Jody Hill.
