HBO Renews Curb Your Enthusiasm For An Eleventh Season 

After being revived in 2017 and giving the network two hit seasons, the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm created by and starring Larry David is set to return at HBO for an eleventh season!

Originally debuting on HBO in 2001 and presenting 100 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. The series’ ten-episode tenth season debuted January 19, 2020 and brought back series veterans including Susie Essman (Broad City), Jeff Garlin (The Goldbergs), Emmy nominee Cheryl Hines (Suburgatory), Richard Lewis (Anything But Love), J.B. Smoove (The Millers) and Emmy winner Ted Danson (The Good Place).

“Believe me, I’m as upset about this as you are,” David said in a statement. “One day I can only hope that HBO will come to their senses and grant me the cancellation I so richly deserve.”

Watch The Trailer For HBO’s I’ll Be Gone In The Dark

HBO has released the official I’ll Be Gone in the Dark trailer for the upcoming six-part documentary series from Oscar nominee and Emmy winning director Liz Garbus, premiering on Sunday, June 28.

I’ll Be Gone In The Dark explores writer Michelle McNamara’s investigation into the dark world of the violent predator she dubbed the Golden State Killer. McNamara lived a quiet life as a writer, mother, and wife, preferring to stay on the periphery of the Hollywood world of her comedian husband Patton Oswalt. But every night, as her family slept, she indulged her obsession with unsolved cases, beginning her investigation into the man who terrorized California in the 1970s and 80s and is responsible for 50 home-invasion rapes and 12 murders.

The six-part docuseries is a comprehensive exploration of the case of an elusive, violent predator by McNamara, who suddenly died at the age of 46 due to an accidental overdose while investigating the unsolved crimes. It is also a haunting personal memoir and self-examination of McNamara’s obsessive quest for justice on behalf of the victims and survivors of the crimes. Framed by an introduction by Gillian Flynn and afterword by McNamara’s husband, comedian Patton Oswalt, the book was completed by McNamara’s lead researcher, Paul Haynes, and a close colleague, Billy Jenkins.
