Larry David is bringing the cult TV show back next year
Filming on the ninth series of Curb Your Enthusiasm has begun.
Production on the show officially began yesterday (November 11) on the new episodes, which will air on HBO next year.
The network posted a video to their Twitter page confirming the news, featuring actor JB Smoove, who plays the character Leon Black in the show. Watch it below via Consequence Of Sound.
Creator Larry David’s daughter Cazzie also posted to social media from the show’s set, captioning a photo of a crew chair: “A reminder that laughs and smiles are on the way.”
The cult comedy launched on HBO in 2000. David, co-creator of Seinfeld, stars as a fictionalised version of himself in the semi-improvised show, which he also created and writes.
Previous reports had stated there was a “51 per cent” chance of the show returning.
Asked about the possibility of new episodes, David’s co-star Jeff Garlin replied recently: “I’d say [there’s] a decent chance. Not good, not bad, decent.”
Garlin, who plays David’s manager Jeff Greene in the show, went on to describe Curb Your Enthusiasm as “the only show that I know in the history of television that only moves forward because the creator is basing his decision entirely on creativity”. David, he said, is “so rich that he doesn’t have to do anything unless it’s good.”
Several of the main cast are confirmed to return for the new series including Jeff Garlin, Cheryl Hines, Susie Essman, Ted Danson and Marty Steenburgen.
