While it would be easy to focus on the success HBO had had with its recent run of new series like Watchmen, Euphoria, The Outsider, and Perry Mason, we're pretty sure the old, funny curmudgeon in the corner over there would make it a point of reminding us that he's not going anywhere. And that he's hungry but can figure out what he wants, or something like that. That's right, the cable giant announced on Tuesday that viewers will have Larry David (Seinfeld) to kick around for at least one more season, with Curb Your Enthusiasm set to return for an eleventh season (and putting it over the "100th episode" mark).
Series creator David will executive produce along with Jeff Garlin, Jeff Schaffer, and Gavin Polone, with Laura Streicher co-executive producing and Jon Hayman serving as a consulting producer. Joining David for the tenth season were David, Garlin, Susie Essman, Cheryl Hines, Richard Lewis, J.B. Smoove, and Ted Danson, with most if not all expected to return. While still too early for a specific premiere window, viewers should pencil in 2021 for the show's return.
HBO has pretty much given David and the team the keys to the cable network, stating in the past that the series would have a home there for however long the CYE crew wants to continue the series. "This past season tapped into the zeitgeist in such an uncomfortably delightful way," explained Amy Gravitt, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming. "Larry is already busy writing, and we can't wait to see what he has in store." Considering David's on-screen need to suffer in order to live, viewers shouldn't be looking for that ending any time soon: "Believe me, I'm as upset about this as you are. One day I can only hope that HBO will come to their senses and grant me the cancellation I so richly deserve."
