The show stars David as a heightened version of himself – the enormously successful co-creator of the hit sitcom Seinfeld – as he navigates the frivolous minutia of everyday social interactions. The series, which has a signature style marked by improvised dialogue and scene work, also stars Cheryl Hines, Jeff Garlin, Susie Essman, and J.B. Smoove.
“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, who recently took over the position of president of HBO programming.
David produces the show with Garlin, Robert Wade, Alec Berg, David Mandel, Jeff Schaffer, Larry Charles, Gavin Polone, Tim Gibbons, and Erin O’Malley.
After Season 8 aired in 2011, whether or not David would return for another season was very much up in the air – as it has been for much of Curb Your Enthusiasm’s run. Curb, which premiered on HBO in 2000, now has 80 episodes under its belt and is the network’s longest-running sitcom. David has a rare situation at HBO, which essentially allows him the freedom to pick up the show if and when he chooses to do so (Louis C.K. shares a similar relationship with his series Louie at FX).
Details regarding episode stories, casting, or a premiere date have not yet been announced.
David is repped by WME.
