There’s no curbing this. Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm TV show is finally returning to HBO for a ninth season! We’re feeling pretty good. Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good. David put the show on hiatus after the eighth season in 2011, leaving Curb Your Enthusiasm effectively cancelled.
Back in November, we reported HBO was ready to bring back Curb Your Enthusiasm anytime the Seinfeld co-creator (and inspiration for Jason Alexander’s George Costanza) was ready. Last week we heard the star was considering it. David stars in the sitcom as a semi-fictional version himself. The Curb Your Enthusiasm TV show cast also includes Jeff Garlin, Cheryl Hines, and Susie Essman.
Here is the HBO press release announcing Curb Your Enthusiasm, season nine.
HIT HBO COMEDY SERIES CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM,
STARRING LARRY DAVID, TO RETURN FOR ITS NINTH SEASON
LOS ANGELES, June 14, 2016 – The Emmy®- and Golden Globe-winning comedy series CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, starring Larry David, will return to HBO for its ninth season, it was announced today by Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming. Details of the new season will be announced as they are confirmed.
“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 Bloys.
Asked why he decided to come back, David said, “In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, ‘I left, I did nothing, I returned’.”
CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM stars “Seinfeld” co-creator David as an over-the-top version of himself in an unsparing but tongue-in-cheek depiction of his life. With 80 episodes to date, the show is HBO’s longest-running scripted comedy or drama series. David also starred in and co-wrote the 2013 HBO Films presentation “Clear History.”
