AceShowbiz - While it took six years to get a ninth season of "Curb Your Enthusiasm", fans won't wait for too long to get a season 10. HBO has renewed the Larry David-starring comedy, which debuted in 2000, for another season, the network announced on Thursday, December 14.
"As I've said many times, when one has the opportunity to annoy someone, one should do so," David said in a statement. "We are thrilled that Larry will be back with his uniquely acerbic wit and comedic sensibility," HBO programming president Casey Bloys added.
The filming for the tenth season is expected to start in the spring.
When asked why the season 10 renewal came so quickly compared to the previous one, EP Jeff Schaffer told Entertainment Weekly, "Before we came back it was, 'You've been away for so long.' Now it's 'You're coming back so soon?' The TV scheduling Gods are very hard to please!" He added, "The truth is, Larry had so much fun last season that he wants to do it again. Usually, at the end of a shoot, he's absolutely sure he's never doing it again. But this season was different, during our last days of shooting he was already thinking about reloading."
Schaffer didn't specifically detail what to expect from the upcoming tenth season, saying, "I wish I could tell you everything about next year because that would mean that we're actually done writing it." However, he promised one thing "that didn't happen: Larry wasn't killed."
"Curb Your Enthusiasm" returned for its ninth season in 2017, six years after season 8 premiered in 2011. The new season of the comedy nabbed two SAG Award nominations, which included outstanding ensemble in a comedy and outstanding male performer in a comedy series for star David.
A slew of longtime "Curb Your Enthusiasm" stars made a return for season 9. Jeff Garlin, Susie Essman, J.B. Smoove, Cheryl Hines, Richard Lewis, Bob Einstein, Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen were among the returning actors. It also featured guest stars such as Elizabeth Banks, Lauren Graham, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Nick Offerman and Bryan Cranston.
