'Eastbound & Down' star Danny McBride and co-creator Jody Hill told the audience at the show's PaleyFest 2011 panel yesterday that they don't foresee anything past a third season for the show, Entertainment Weekly reports.

"We never really had an interest in turning the show into anything traditional," McBride said. "We approach each season like it's one long movie."

Season 3, which McBride and Hill are writing right now, will most likely air in 2012.
