Curb Your Enthusiasm returning for 9th season calls for a celebration
It’s been four years, nine months, three days and 17 hours since we were blessed with our last episode of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” not that we’re counting. And today we got some of our best news in years — Curb will be returning for a 9th season.
HBO announced Tuesday that beloved comedy show Curb starring our man LD will return for a ninth season.
“We’re thrilled that Larry has decided to do a new season of CURB and can’t wait to see what he has planned,” said Casey Bloys, president of HBO programming.
Larry David of course joked about his return in his typical self-deprecating fashion. “In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, ‘I left, I did nothing, I returned.’”
Since the last season aired in 2011, LD gave us “Clear History,” an underrated movie by all means and definitely satisfying if you’re a Curb fan. It was like a bonus few episodes. But that was in 2013, and three years have passed since then. Getting Curb back is a true treat.
First airing in 2000, Curb is HBO’s longest running show. There were hints from JB Smoove last week on Rich Eisen’s show that Larry was getting restless and perhaps interested in relaunching the show. His decision to do so is a gift to fans everywhere.
Thank you, oh thank you, LD.
