Yeah, we’ll say it: Here’s some pretty, pretty, pretty good news.
Curb Your Enthusiasm will return for a ninth season, nearly five years after Larry David’s curmudgeonly HBO comedy aired its Season 8 finale. HBO announced the news Tuesday.
No word yet on how many episodes, when the new season will premiere, which famous faces will guest-star or how often Susie will throw Larry out of her house in anger.
“We’re thrilled that Larry has decided to do a new season of Curb and can’t wait to see what he has planned,” Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming, said in a statement. The official release also included David’s thoughts on the new episodes: “In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, ‘I left, I did nothing, I returned.'”
Two years ago, Bloys’ predecessor Michael Lombardo told reporters at the Television Critics Association summer press tour that they shouldn’t count out another installment of the Seinfeld co-creator’s HBO series. “I said, ‘So Larry, should I emotionally get Curb out of my head?’ He says, ‘No, no, no.’ As long as he’s still thinking about it, we have a place for him.”
