The team behind HBO’s Eastbound and Down are hoping to end things off with a bang for the third and final season of the much beloved show. We already know that they’re bringing in comedic heavyweight Jason Sudeikis to assist and now we learn that Will Ferrell and Matthew McConaughey will both return.
I say return because they have both already showed up in the show, Ferrell as BMW dealership owner Ashley Schaeffer and McConaughey as gay player scout Roy McDaniel.
Personally, I’m thrilled about this. Eastbound and Down is one of the funniest shows on television and with Sudeikis making an appearance, as well as McConaughey and Ferrell reutrning, you can be sure that this will be a fantastic season.
Both McDaniel and Schaeffer were great characters for Danny McBride‘s Kenny Powers to play off of and I’m happy to see that the team brought them back. I’m not sure how Sudeikis will factor into everything but honestly, with this much comedic power being lined up for season three, I can not wait!
The third season will see Powers head to “Myrtle Beach to play for their Minor League team at Pelican Stadium, the Mermens.” Being the last time that we’ll see one of television’s best yet most underrated characters, I’m hoping that the writers have something special in store for us. Judging by how things are already playing out, it looks like they will.
