Season 3 was supposed to be the end of the road for Kenny fucking Powers, since Jody Hill and Danny McBride had said a while ago that the 21st chapter of the series would be its last. That announcement of the end of the show was done a month before the release of Your Highness (from the E&D crew : directed by David Gordon Green / written by Ben Best & Danny McBride (also starring)), the $50 million (disappointing) comedy that grossed $25 million worldwide. Two days before episode 3.08 (the supposed series finale) aired, Jody Hill wasn't so sure that there would be no season 4.
And now it's official : there will be new episodes of Eastbound and Down, HBO renewed the show for a fourth season.
This is a pleasant announcement, first because Eastbound & Down is a superb comedy everyone should watch, and also because until the renewals of Veep and Girls in April, it felt like HBO was trying to get rid of all its half-hour series (with In Treatment, Entourage, How to Make it in America, Hung & the amazing Bored to Death ending / being cancelled in 2011 (+ The Life & Times of Tim cancelled recently), and still nothing official on the future of the brilliant Curb your Enthusiasm).
A few hours ago, HBO also renewed True Blood and The Newsroom.
