Danny McBride returns to HBO with the fourth and final season of Eastbound & Down. Season 3 was originally thought to be the final season, but surprised fans when they announced that there would be one final season.
If you’ve never seen the series it follows a former major league baseball pitcher who struggles to find his way back to the glory he once had. After faking his death at the end of season 3, the new season kicks off years later where Kenny and April are married had another child and has more or less stayed the course he promised April, though he hates his job as Assistant Manager at a car-rental outlet in North Carolina. In his down time, instead of boozing and doing drugs, Kenny dabbles in writing a screenplay, “The Kenny Powers Saga”. The vices of his playing days are a thing of the past – until Kenny runs into Guy Young, a onetime teammate and current host of the raucous TV talk show Sports Sesh. Guy convinces Kenny to quit the rat race and get back in the game – as a celebrity “titan” who deserves greatness and the lifestyle of the rich, famous and arrogant.
Step back on the mound to pitch the final game when Eastbound & Down premieres on September 29th on HBO.
