Eastbound and Down: Season 3 scene

Oh baby! Danny McBride returns in the third season of Eastbound & Down.

HBO’s irreverent comedy TV show Eastbound & Down: Season 3 finds burned-out major league pitcher Kenny Powers (Danny McBride, Due Date) returning to the U.S. after a Season 2 stint in Mexico.

Picking up a year after Season 2, the third season sees Kenny back in action on the “Redneck Riviera” (aka Myrtle Beach, SC), where he has somehow resurrected his baseball career by becoming the closer for the minor-league Myrtle Beach Mermen. Even as he tries to pass himself off as the “King of Myrtle Beach,” Kenny struggles to come to terms with growing older and accepting the responsibilities of being a new father. Said responsibilities are thrust on him when his ex-lover and baby mama April (Katy Mixon, Take Shelter) seemingly abandons their child in Kenny’s humble abode.

Created by McBride, Ben Best (writer of Your Highness starring McBride) and Jody Hill (writer/director of Observe and Report) and exec produced by Will Ferrell (The Other Guys) and Adam McKay (Step Brothers), Eastbound & Down also stars John Hawkes (Martha Marcy May Marlene), Jennifer Irwin (No Strings Attached) and, in his appearance in the series, Jason Sudeikis (A Good Old Fashioned Orgy).

Though Season 3 was thought to be the final year for the television series, McBride and Hill confirmed in July, 2012 that Eastbound & Down would return for yet a fourth season!

The Blu-ray and DVD contain the following bonus features:

  • Outtakes: Blooper Reel
  • Deleted Scenes
  • “Dinner with the Schaeffer’s” – exclusive deleted scene
  • Eight Audio Commentaries with Danny McBride, Jody Hill, Steve Little, David Gordon Green, Katy Mixon, Craig Robinson and more
