HBO on the Mound with Fourth Season of ‘Eastbound & Down'


HBO has renewed baseball comedy Eastbound & Down for a fourth season, a network spokesperson confirmed.
The premium network has ordered eight additional episodes of the Danny McBride series to return next year. On Monday, HBO renewed two of its dramas - the long-running True Blood and freshman skein The Newsroom.
Eastbound & Down ended its third season in April, with the finale drawing 1.1 million total viewers. Its renewal keeps HBO with three comedies on its schedule, joining Girls and Veep.
