Fate of HBO shows filmed in Wilmington?

The Star-News is reporting that HBO's "Eastbound and Down," which is filmed in the Wilmington area, has been renewed for a second season. Unfortunately, HBO's "Little Britain USA," also filmed in the Port City, likely will not return in the same form. Instead, it will likely return as a special or series of specials.

More likely is the return of 'Eastbound and Down' to the Port City. The raunchy half-hour comedy starring Danny McBride filmed in Wilmington last fall and aired on HBO this spring. That show has been renewed for a second season, which could start production as soon as this fall. And though it is not definite that season two will film in Wilmington, the creators have said they want to return.
