Time to set your DVRs. HBO has announced that season two of the Will Ferrell/Adam McKay-produced baseball comedy “Eastbound & Down” will debut Sunday, September 26 at 10:30 PM.

The network has ordered seven episodes for seson two, with new editions set to run in that time period over the following six Sundays.
