Kenny Powers is back! HBO has released the trailer for "Eastbound & Down" Season 3, and things are looking up for the over-the-hill antihero. He's back in the states and throwing heat for the semi-pro Myrtle Beach Mermen after last season's sojourn in Mexico.
Much to Stevie Janowski's chagrin, Kenny becomes fast friends with his catcher Shane, played by "Saturday Night Live" star Jason Sudeikis. Together, they set out to take over the party town. "Me and Shane-Dawg, two youngbloods, are runnin' this town, ownin' this team, and chasin' down our goddamn dreams," Kenny announces with glee.
Kenny also still seems to be with his buxom first-love April Buchanon, who told him she was pregnant with his child at the end of Season 2. In the trailer, they shotgun beers, race bumper cars and gaze at sunsets together.
But despite the new developments, it's still the same Kenny Powers. He rides the waves on a boogie board emblazoned with a Confederate flag and a marijuana leaf, gets into wrestling matches with his teammates in the bullpen, doles out hilariously offensive catch-phrases and rides his jet-ski like a champion.
Season 3 of "Eastbound & Down" premieres Sunday, Feb. 19 at 10 p.m. EST on HBO.
