The long-awaited return of Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm came this year with the ninth season finale airing earlier this month on HBO. Now, the premium cable network has announced the Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning comedy series will return to HBO for its tenth season. Unlike the six-year gap between the eighth and ninth seasons, there will not be an extended hiatus for the next season as production on the new episodes will begin in the spring.
“We are thrilled that Larry will be back with his uniquely acerbic wit and comedic sensibility,” said Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming.
Adds Larry David, “As I’ve said many times, when one has the opportunity to annoy someone, one should do so.”
Curb Your Enthusiasm has just received two Screen Actors Guild Award nominations, for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series (Larry David) and Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.
Debuting on HBO in 2001 and presenting 90 episodes to date, Curb Your Enthusiasm stars Seinfeld co-creator David as an over-the-top version of himself in an unsparing but tongue-in-cheek depiction of his fictionalized life.
Season nine brought back series veterans Jeff Garlin, Susie Essman, J.B. Smoove, Cheryl Hines, Richard Lewis, Bob Einstein, Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen.
