HBO has released the official trailer for season two of their comedy series “Eastbound & Down.” The show will mark the return of Danny McBride and his alter ego Kenny Powers getting into a new batch of trouble thanks to a change in his location. The first season of the show didn’t have amazing ratings but it developed a serious following online, hence the renewal. Hopefully, these new episodes build on that. Check out the trailer…
If you watch the trailer multiple times you might see a few familiar faces including Efren Ramirez who played Pedro in Napoleon Dynamite. It looks like he’s playing a bartender of some sort. After experiencing so much loss, Kenny has moved south of the border to Mexico where apparently he sees beyond color. In his words, “I transcend race hombre.”
We don’t know what we’re more excited about, the actual show returning or the reappearance of his cornrows. There’s nothing more perplexing yet mesmerizing than a white dude with braids.
“Eastbound and Down” is slated to return on September 26th at 10:30 PM.
What do you think of the trailer for Eastbound & Down? Are you looking forward to the new season? Do you think the show will catch on?
