What’s in store for the big return of Curb Your Enthusiasm? Recently, the cast and producers of the HBO TV show discussed what fans can expect from season nine, via The Hollywood Reporter.
The comedy, which stars Larry David as himself, has been on a hiatus since its eighth season ended in 2011. Returning cast members include JB Smoove, Cheryl Hines, Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, Jeff Garlin, and Susie Essman.
At the summer TCA press conference, Larry David explained why he brought Curb Your Enthusiasm back for another season:
I’m not a misser. I don’t really miss things, people that much, but I was missing it and I was missing these idiots so I thought, ‘Yeah, what the hell? And I got tired of people asking is the show coming back? I couldn’t get asked that question anymore and I wasn’t ready to say no, never.”
Later, executive producer Jeff Schaffer revealed that season nine will get “crazy”:
You’re going to find out very quickly when the show starts what’ he’s been up to the for last five years and what everyone has been up to for the last five years. Once the show starts to air, it will be self-evident. … It goes to this really strange, fun, crazy place and then you’ll never expect where it ends.”
