Renewed: Bored to Death, Eastbound & Down
Two HBO US comedies airing on Showcase win new seasons, as well as returning to Aussie screens in December.
HBO has renewed comedy series Bored to Death which stars Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis.
It’s second premiere audience in the US was a modest 1.1 million viewers despite following Boardwalk Empire, but has remained relatively steady in the ratings in addition to winning critical praise.
Season Two will premiere in Australia on Showcase as double episodes from 8:30pm Tuesday December 7th.
HBO also renewed the Will Ferrell-produced comedy Eastbound & Down for a third season. It stars Danny McBride as a former professional baseball pitcher who is forced to return to his hometown as a substitute physical education teacher.
It returns to Showcase 8:30pm Monday December 13th.
