HBO continues to dole out the good news this week. Yesterday, we shared the news that the pay cable network had renewed True Blood for Season 6 and the brand new Aaron Sorkin drama The Newsroom for a second season. And now comes word that Eastbound & Down will be return for another season next year.
HBO just released the first full trailer for the upcoming year of Eastbound and Down. The third season of the half-hour comedy is bringing Kenny Powers back to American soil, this time with a minor league pitching position as part of the Mermen in Myrtle Beach or as it's also known, "the redneck Riviera." And when the co-creators promise the funniest, best season yet, you best buy your season's tickets. Here's a behind the scenes look.
Eastbound & Down Season 3 kicks off in just over two weeks but the return of Kenny Powers to the American baseball scene couldn't come soon enough. In one of the most highly anticipated moves of the off-season, Number 55 is back and ready to throw some heat for the Myrtle Beach Mermen and don't worry, by the looks of this new trailer, he's up to his usual off-field pastimes as well.
If you thought the bikini-bottom poster for Eastbound & Down was sexy, wait until you feast your eyes on the new one HBO has released in anticipation of the comedy series’ approaching third season premiere, which you may have already noted by the date, is exactly one month away!
Next month, HBO is set to bring comedy series Eastbound & Down back for its third season. In anticipation of the show’s return, HBO released a teaser poster, which doesn’t give much away but does reveal how Kenny Powers’ face would look on a lower-back tattoo.
It feels like a long time since we’ve had any updates on the return of Danny McBride and HBO’s Eastbound & Down. The last time we saw the former big league hurler he was about to make a triumphant return to the US of A after his successful stint in Mexican baseball as ‘La Flama Blanca.’ Although that nickname is likely to remain behind, Kenny Powers is back is the American minors with the Myrtle Beach Mermen. And it looks awesome.
While the U.K. has already seen Ricky Gervais’ latest series Life’s Too Short, those of us on this side of the pond have had to wait and we’ll be waiting even longer. The series is set to make its stateside debut next year and it appears HBO has officially set the date.
Kenny Powers' return was only a matter of time. He quickly conquered the Mexican Minor Leagues as 'La Flama Blanca,' at once regaining some much needed confidence and winning the hearts and minds of, well, Stevie Janowski at least. Now it's time for former and future star pitcher to once again play ball in the land where they call it their national pastime. However, before he can make the jump to the MLB, KFP has to make a quick pit-stop in the minor leagues during Eastbound & Down Season 3.
It was only just announced/leaked that HBO's hit comedy Eastbound and Down would be making it's return in January 2012. Not a firm premiere date but after a little educated guessing, it looks like Sunday the 15 or 22 would be a good bet. The news came from a popular, if unofficial, Kenny Powers twitter account that seemingly has some ties to the show. Oh, and they were nice enough to send another photo our way.
Kenny Powers' return was inevitable. After his siesta in the Mexican Minor Leagues, regaining his confidence and winning the hearts and minds of, well, Stevie, the star pitcher returns to play ball in the land where they call it their national pastime. Yes. The United States of America. And on HBO. And now we finally have a firm-ish date for the start of the third season, not to mention a look at his new ball club.
In the last episode of the second season, succinctly titled "Chapter 13" Kenny Powers and his weird buddy Stevie Janowski decided to leave Mexico behind them. Yep, everyone's favorite fast-baller and his goofy sidekick were back in the good US of A and Kenny F. Powers maybe on his way back to the bigs. Things are finally starting to look up for the one time all-star and all-time asshole. However, this new signing might put his comeback in jeopardy on Eastbound & Down.
A few years back, I thought Jason Sudeikis was probably the most boring SNL cast member in what was already a pretty weak cast (Kristen Wiig excepted, of course). Then he started to spread his wings on the live skit show, no longer always relegated to playing the straight guy, and appeared in some great bit parts in 30 Rock, The Rocker, and Going the Distance (what a stache!). And his star only seems to be continuing its rise.
There's something odd and yet totally inspired about the relationship between Kenny Powers and K-Swiss... I mean, am I the only one who finds it completely bizarre, hilarious and somehow appropriate that this abrasive, to say the least, fictional character has paired for an endorsement deal with a brand I always associated with sailing, perhaps the least volatile sport in the world.
The rigors of filming a premium cable television program are far different than that of a network show, but it still takes a serious effort to block off everyone’s time for the same ten week period. Apparently, that’s getting harder for the HBO comedy, and star Danny McBride has publically revealed season three will be the program’s last.
When last we saw Danny McBride’s Kenny Powers character, he'd just had his dreams of glory crushed when plans for a return to the majors went sour. Ashamed to face his family and friends
