'Eastbound & Down: The Complete Third Season' Announced and Detailed for Blu-ray

Posted Wed Sep 12, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

Eight more episodes of the HBO comedy series arrive on Blu-ray in December.

In an early announcement to retailers, HBO is working on 'Eastbound & Down: The Complete Third Season' for Blu-ray on December 4.

This season Kenny Powers throws a curve ball that lands himself in the "Redneck Riviera" to revive his baseball career.

Powers, whose boorish behavior and fading fastball led to a spectacular career flame-out now finds himself back on the mound in the USA. Picking up a year after season two, the third season finds Kenny in action on the "Redneck Riviera" (aka Myrtle Beach, SC), somehow resurrecting his baseball career by becoming the closer for the minor-league Myrtle Beach Mermen. Even as he tries to pass himself off as the "King of Myrtle Beach," Kenny struggles to come to terms with growing older and accepting the responsibilities of being a new father.

The Blu-ray set will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Bloopers Reel, Deleted Scenes, "Dinner at Schaeffer's", and 8 Audio commentaries with Danny McBride, Jody Hill, Steve Little & David Gordon Green.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.98.
