The wait is almost over. The second season of "Eastbound and Down" will officially send K F*CKING P south of the border to Mexico, where the drugs are more dangerous and nobody works past noon. Michael Pena and Ana de la Reguera join the cast while most of season one’s cast sit this one out. Everyone except for Kenny’s stalker Stevie Janowski, thankfully.
In Season 2, hiding from his problems, Kenny finds himself in Mexico where he joins a local baseball team. Crash co-star Pena will play Kenny’s friend and owner of the baseball team he joins. De la Reguera will play Kenny’s love interest in Mexico.
Because of the new setting, most of the cast members from Season 1 of the show will have little or no presence next season with the exception of Steve Little whose character Stevie Janowski will track Danny down in Mexico. Casting is underway for the role of Kenny’s father.
Filming begins in May, but that’s just not soon enough for me. I’ll scrape a chalk dash for everyday that passes without a new episode on the side of my television. Like they do in the fancier prisons. (Deadline)
