When Eastbound and Down season three came to an end, many fans of the show thought that it was the end of the series as a whole, as this is what we were led to believe. Fortunately though, they decided that they wanted to end the series in a specific way, so set to work about getting the cast back together for one last season.
One cast member who they were unsure of being able to get back, was actress Katy Mixon, who plays the role of Kenny Powers girlfriend. While speaking about Eastbound and Down season 4, Katy revealed how Danny McBride text her to ask if she would return for the new season.
Mixon explained, "Danny was shooting a movie in New Orleans and he texted me and he was like, ‘Kate, you want to be part of a fourth season?’ I was like, ‘Rock and roll!’"
As well as seeing the return of Danny McBride and Katy Mixon, Eastbound and Down season 4 will also see the familiar faces of Jennifer Irwin, Elizabeth de Razzo and Steve Little, while also adding the likes of Tim Heidecker and Ken Marino to the cast. Eastbound and Down season 4 premiered on HBO on September 29.
