Season 9 aired back in 2017
Curb Your Enthusiasm fans will have to wait a little longer for new episodes to air, with its next season not due on screens until next year.
The cult HBO show, which stars Seinfeld creator Larry David as a fictionalised version of himself, premiered in 2000. It returned to screens in 2017 for season 9 following a six-year absence.
After being commissioned for a tenth instalment shortly afterward, it was confirmed in October 2018 that production had finally begun. No plot details or further information were shared.
Now, Collider reports that Curb isn’t due to air until 2020. The publication cites David’s schedule as the reason for the delay, with the actor believing that the show won’t be ready in 2019.
It’s also suggested that HBO could be holding new episodes back because the network wants to wait until Emmy voting season next spring.
Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s upcoming new season was initially due to begin production at the start of 2018.
Executive producer Jeff Schaffer previously told Entertainment Weekly that the whole cast will return – hinting that “a few more old friends from the Curb universe” could appear.
Speaking of the upcoming series in 2017, David said: “As I’ve said many times, when one has the opportunity to annoy someone, one should do so.”
HBO boss Casey Bloys added: “We are thrilled that Larry will be back with his uniquely acerbic wit and comedic sensibility.”
Earlier this year, Bob Einstein, best known for his role as Curb‘s Marty Funkhouser, passed away.
