‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ gets new season on HBO
Larry David is bringing his curmudgeonly grumblings back to HBO with a ninth season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” nearly five years since the meta comedy was last on the air.
HBO announced no further details about the new season, or when it will premiere.
“Curb,” which stars the “Seinfeld” co-creator as an over-the-top version of himself, previously ran for 80 episodes from 2000 to 2011. During that run, David would frequently take two years between seasons, and after Season 8, network executives said they would maintain an open-door policy should he want to do additional episodes.
David, a Brooklyn native, has been experiencing a pop culture renaissance in the last year, doing his spot-on impersonation of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on “Saturday Night Live” and posing in photos with his Instagram-famous daughter.
Since “Curb” ended, David starred in and co-wrote the 2013 HBO film “Clear History,” appeared on the 2014 premiere episode of pal Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee” and made his Broadway debut in “Fish in the Dark” last year.
