HBO announced today that it has renewed Curb Your Enthusiasm for an eighth season. Production on the next 10 episodes will begin this summer in Los Angeles and New York; the comedy will return to the schedule sometime in 2011.
“After much soul searching — and by the way, it was nowhere to be found — I have decided to do another season of Curb,” said Larry David in a statement. “I look forward to the end of shooting, when I can once again resume the hunt for my elusive soul. I know it’s here somewhere or perhaps in the rugged mountainous regions of Pakistan.”
The single-camera series also stars Cheryl Hines as David’s wife Cheryl, Jeff Garlin as David’s manager Jeff and Susie Essman as Jeff’s wife Susie. After 70 episodes, Curb is HBO’s longest-running scripted series.
