We already knew Kenny Powers would return to our lives when HBO announced a third season for the incendiary comedy last October, but now it appears the actual return of the unctuous reliever is more in focus.

According to Vice, Danny McBride and director David Gordon Green will sit down to write the third season soon, with eyes to shooting in the late summer/early fall. Eastbound and Down would the premiere in early 2012. So, good news! If that is the final year of human existence (those damn Mayans and their calendar), at least it will start off on a hilarious note.
