Larry David once said, "I always think of nice things but I never act on them."
Well this time, he's acting on it, because Larry David—and all of his annoyances—are officially coming back to HBO for a ninth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Of the news to do another season, David said, "'In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, ‘I left, I did nothing, I returned.’” He always had the freedom from HBO to only come back when he had something he wanted to write about. But hints from former EP and current VEEP showrunner David Mandel, as well as Larry's chatty co-star J.B. Smoove, gave a clue that something was brewing in David's very funny brain.
Curb Your Enthusiasm follows David as an over-the-top version of himself whose many behavioral annoyances put him in awkward social situations. It ran 80 episodes from 2000-2011, making it the longest-running HBO scripted comedy or drama series, and was nominated for 39 Primetime Emmy Awards, winning twice. It also took home the 2003 Golden Globe for Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy.
“We’re thrilled that Larry has decided to do a new season of CURB and can’t wait to see what he has planned,” said Casey Bloys, president of HBO programming.
The return of series favorites including Cheryl Hines (who left the show at the beginning of season eight) and Jeff Garlin, as well as a release date, have yet to be announced.
