Curb Your Enthusiasm renewed for season 10

Alec Bojalad Dec 15, 2017

HBO doesn't want to wait another six years this time, as it's renewed Curb Your Enthusiasm for a 10th season...

HBO will not be foisting Larry David on any other network, as it announced yesterday that it will be bringing back Curb Your Enthusiasm for a 10th season.

The announcement comes in a surprisingly painless fashion, and much quicker than Curb Your Enthusiasm is accustomed to. Larry David tends to like to make the people wait. The gap between season 8 and season 9 was six full years. This time around, however, the Curb crew is getting right back to work after early December's season 9 finale, with production starting as soon as a few months from now.

"As I’ve said many times, when one has the opportunity to annoy someone, one should do so," David said in a statement

Season 9 started off a bit roughly, but eventually reached

Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season 10? Sunday's Finale Could End the HBO Series

Curb Your Enthusiasm aired its finale on Sunday, and the episode could end the series once again. It had been several years since the end of season nine when this season was announced, so another season is always possible.Jeff Schaffer spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the possibility of this finale being an end to the HBO series. He said the following:“The end of next week's episode could easily be the final Curb ever — or not. It's built that it could go either way. In Curb-land, season finales are usually series finales in Larry's mind. How could he ever do another episode? Where are those ideas going to come from? Larry is the only one who doubts he'll ever have another good story for the show. So when we wrote this season finale, our goal was to come up with a good ending that

'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Boss on Lin-Manuel Miranda's Influence Over Larry David's Musical

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Sunday's episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, "The Shucker."]

Pop culture worlds collided in Sunday's supersized Curb Your Enthusiasm, the penultimate episode of Larry David's comeback season of the HBO comedy.

David and executive producer Jeff Schaffer pulled off two major cameos that managed to stay a secret until Sunday's show. One, a hinted-at visit from Lin-Manuel Miranda, as the world-famous star is the only actor the Muftis wanted to see starring in David's Fatwa! The Musical if they allowed it to go on from last week's episode; and the...

Why 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Is Putting Its Fatwa Storyline on Hold — for Now

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Sunday's episode of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, titled "The Accidental Text on Purpose."]

From one idea, the "accidental text on purpose," a supersized episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm was born.

Clocking in at 40 minutes, Sunday's episode of the HBO comedy's ninth season has, so far, only been outdone in length by the premiere, "Foisted," which set the stage for the season-long fatwa storyline. This episode, however, ignored the death threat that continues to hang over Larry David's TV alter ego's head entirely. Instead, as executive Jeff Schaffer tells The Hollywood Reporter,...

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Sunday's episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, "Thank You For Your Service."]

Over on HBO on Sunday night, Larry David delivered a different Ptsd-centered story in an episode also titled "Thank You For Your Service."

After two episodes, the long-awaited ninth season of Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” is finally start to shape its ultimate narrative. Little dignities, big hijinks, and Palestinian chicken aside, the HBO series lives and dies by the strength of its overall arc, a backbone that’s helped deliver such classic storylines as “that time Larry did Broadway” and “hey, Richard Lewis is dying.” This year, it’s all about the fatwa.

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’: Larry David Invented Hot Takes, and He Isn’t Looking For Yours
After six years off the air, Larry David and his beloved HBO series “Curb Your Enthusiasm” return to a world that is, well, a lot more like Larry David and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Just as the “Curb” Larry is known for his unsolicited, and often unwelcome opinions, we now live in a social media age awash with too many hot takes.

Can the cringe comedy maintain its gleefully malcontent attitude in a culture where everyone has their own awkward, awful opinion? The TV version of “Larry David” is the king of offensive behavior, typically meted out by his own hand, waged against a world that just doesn’t understand him. “Curb” did it first, and no matter your take, it’s not going to change.

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Stars Reveal Whether They Think Larry David Is Up For Another Season
Leave it to the inimitable Susie Essman to tell it like it is. When asked about the possibility of still more seasons of Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” finally back on the small screen after six years away, Essman kept the door wide open. “I mean, did he come back after six years just to do one more season? Maybe they’ll be 11, 12, 13, who knows,” she told IndieWire.

And she’s got a point. After “Curb” wrapped up its eighth season in the fall of 2011, even David’s own cohorts were concerned that the bold and brash HBO comedy series had come to an end. Essman, who said she was sure the series was going to return (until she very, very much sure that it wasn’t), remembered speaking to David about seven months after the last season finale, set in Paris.

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’: How Trump’s Election Almost Derailed The Returning Comedy’s First Day of Production
Consider it the greatest indignity of them all for Larry David. After almost six years away, David’s lauded comedy series “Curb Your Enthusiasm” was finally set to kick off production on its long-awaited ninth season last November — the day after the presidential election.

Stars and staffers were expecting to return to set in a celebratory mood. Instead, David and his cast and crew — including long-time on-screen sidekick J.B. Smoove and executive producer Jeff Schaffer — reunited on a day that seemed to make it clear just how much things had changed since the series’ eighth season wrapped in September 2011.

“I was up all night, I couldn’t sleep,” Smoove told IndieWire. “I said, ‘You know what? I’m gonna go to sleep and wake up and this shit is gonna be fine.’ It was the weirdest day. It felt like a weird dream, I was like, ‘Really?’ I couldn’t believe it.

Larry David Is Back and as Unhappy as Ever in ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Trailer (Watch)

Larry David Is Back and as Unhappy as Ever in ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Trailer (Watch)
Judging by the new trailer for “Curb Your Enthusiasm” just released by HBO, everyone’s favorite misanthrope hasn’t changed one bit.

Larry David shushes a crying woman at a funeral. He knocks over a woman spraying perfume in a department store. He chases away two people who are kissing in front of him. “You’re allowed to be happy, but not in front of me,” he tells them.

“A grave injustice has been done here. We are no better than the beasts in the field!” he intones to a judge before committing the ultimate sin in court: Saying “yoo-hoo” to the judge, who’s none too pleased.

“You can’t yoo-hoo a judge?” David retorts.

It falls to “Curb” star Richard Lewis to deliver the ultimate judgment: “You’re devoid of anything that’s remotely caring or empathetic.” To which David naturally responds, “That’s a great compliment.”

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ EP: Season 9 is a ‘Five-Year Log-Jam of Indignities’
When “Curb Your Enthusiasm” returns to HBO for its ninth season, it will be doing so in a very different political climate – and a very different television landscape. When the show last aired in 2011, Larry David planned for that finale episode to act as a series-ender, executive producer Jeff Schaffer tells Variety.

“At the end of a season, Larry has put all of the ideas he has into that season, and he would never want to write a new season without ideas, so how could there ever be a new season?” Schaffer says. “So writing a new season of ‘Curb’ was tricky, especially because this time there was a longer break than usual.”

But HBO was more than willing to wait through the five-year break between the eighth season ending and David and Schaffer calling to say they wanted to do more. Here, Schaffer talks with Variety about what’s changed (and what hasn’t) for the

Larry David would like you to know that there is very little difference between “TV Larry” and “real Larry.”

“TV Larry is about a quarter of an inch away from Real Larry,” the creator and star of HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” told reporters Wednesday at the Television Critics Association press tour. “Real Larry plays golf, so TV Larry plays golf.”

TV Larry and Real Larry both get into their fair share of rude spots, but neither version of Larry, David said, really compares to Donald Trump. “I don’t consider myself to be a prick!” he said.
