The ballad of Kenny Powers has a final stanza: “Eastbound and Down” returns Sept. 29

tv_eastbound_down02Kenny and April Powers have two boys now, living in North Carolina, livin’ the dream … and you know that can’t possibly satisfy his every need.

The Danny McBride sit-com will have eight more episodes in its fourth and final season as HBO announced “Eastbound & Down” is ready to be called in from the bullpen on Sunday, Sept. 29 at 10 p.m., the network announced today.

The series, that started in 2009 with Powers as a washed-up major-league relief pitcher who looks like the late Rod Beck and acts more like Mitch Williams, ended season three with Powers faking his own death after an aborted comeback (after another season in the Mexican League) and proclaiming, again, his love for April

The first episode of the final season is entitled “Chapter 22″ (it’s episode 22) with the synopsis: “Bored with his dead-end job and suburban lifestyle, Kenny ponders a career move after partying with Guy Young, a former teammate and current host of a raucous TV talk show.”
