Eastbound & Down Is Fuckin' BackS

Variety reports that HBO has picked up Eastbound & Down a fourth season. This is something of a surprise, as creators Jody Hill and Danny McBride (who also plays the show's anti-hero Kenny Powers) had said that its third season, which wrapped in April, would be its last. It was indicated in a promo after the penultimate episode that the finale would be the "season finale," as opposed to the finale finale. Little did we know that would turn out to be gospel.

This invalidates my argument about the third season finale being the perfect end to the series, but whatever, Kenny fucking Powers is fucking back to fuck us up with some truth and that's all that matters. The show got better with every season, and there's no reason to believe that it won't continue to do so. This is a triumph for good taste derived from bad taste.
