It has been confirmed that Curb Your Enthusiasm will return for a tenth season.
The cult HBO show first premiered in 2000, starring Seinfeld creator Larry David as a fictionalised version of himself. It returned this year after a six year absence for season 9, which concluded at the weekend.
Now, HBO has confirmed that it has commissioned a tenth season of Curb, with production scheduled to begin in early 2018.
Larry David says of the news: “As I’ve said many times, when one has the opportunity to annoy someone, one should do so.”
HBO boss Casey Bloys adds: “We are thrilled that Larry will be back with his uniquely acerbic wit and comedic sensibility.”
The announcement was made in a tweet from the official HBO Twitter account. See below.

Jeff Garlin, who plays David’s manager Jeff Greene in the show, recently described 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.”
Season 9 of the show premiered in October, reuniting David with regular cast members Susie Essman, Jeff Garlin, Cheryl Hines, Ted Danson and JB Smoove.
The season also featured cameos from guest stars such as Lauren Graham, Elizabeth Banks, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Bryan Cranston.
