It’s the final inning for HBO’s baseball comedy “Eastbound & Down.” The network has announced that the upcoming fourth season will be its last.
Production on Season 4, which will feature eight episodes, begins Friday in North Carolina.
The final season will debut on Sunday, September 29 at 10/9c on HBO.
The series, which scored a surprise renewal last summer, comes from executive producers Will Ferrell, Chris Henchy and Adam McKay, and stars Danny McBride (“Tropic Thunder,” “Pineapple Express”) as incorrigible former major league pitcher Kenny Powers.
According to the HBO press release: “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.”
