Larry David’s ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ has ‘51% chance of returning’, says co-star

David's cult comedy has been on hiatus since 2011

Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm has a “51 per cent” chance of returning for new episodes, David’s co-star Jeff Garlin has revealed.

David, co-creator of Seinfeld, stars as a fictionalised version of himself in the cult comedy, which he also created and writes. Curb Your Enthusiasm launched on HBO in 2000 and returned for its eighth and most recent season in 2011.

Asked about the possibility of new episodes at a US press event earlier this week, Garlin replied: “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”.

Meanwhile, HBO’s president Michael Lombardo has revealed that David recently showed him a notebook containing ideas for the “next season” of Curb Your Enthusiasm. “I don’t think it’s out of his system,” Lombardo said. “When he has something to say, he will come back.”

“I certainly see this as a continuing dialogue with him – a long one, but a continuing one,” Lombardo added.
