Curb Your Enthusiasm to Return for Season 9, HBO Officially Confirms

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.”

Are you enthusiastic there’ll be more Curb? Sound off in the comments!

    Now get the Deadwood movie signed up and in production and I will be good for the rest of the year.

  7. Nate Mayhew says:

    Any chance that SNL has been having “TV’s Larry David” and not the “Real” Larry David? As in this entire season of SNL has been akin to The Producers??

  8. Rita says:

    Can;t get enough of Larry!

  9. HAP says:

    Larry David certainly marches to a different drum. He left Seinfeld, which he co-created after 7 seasons. Then, he now looks to come back after 5 years wit CYE.
