The married actors are among the series’ central cast members, including Larry David, Cheryl Hines, Susie Essman and Jeff Garlin — who’ve signed up for the comedy’s long-awaited ninth season. (Somebody nail down Bob Einstein, and quickly — it’s not a party if Funkhouser isn’t around!)
Steenburgen is currently on Fox’s Last Man on Earth; Danson is a series regular on NBC’s The Good Place. Deadline reports that both — as well as Son of Zorn‘s Hines and The Goldbergs‘ Garlin — will coordinate the filming of Curb so it doesn’t interfere with their other jobs.
Production on the comedy is underway; at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, HBO programming president Casey Bloys said Curb will return sometime in 2017.
