Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” will return for Season 9 on HBO, the premium cabler announced Tuesday.

“We’re thrilled that Larry has decided to do a new season of ‘Curb’ and can’t wait to see what he has planned,” said Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming.

Asked why he decided to come back, David said, “In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, ‘I left, I did nothing, I returned.’”

The hit comedy stars “Seinfeld” co-creator David as an over-the-top version of himself in an unsparing but tongue-in-cheek depiction of his life. With 80 episodes to date, the show is HBO’s longest-running scripted comedy or drama series. David also starred in and co-wrote the 2013 HBO Films presentation “Clear History.”

No details on a Season 9 premiere date or additional casting have been announced at this time. The show hasn’t aired new episodes since 2011, but back in 2012, HBO chairman and CEO Richard Plepler told reporters at the annual Television Critics Assn. press tour that David “essentially has carte blanche with us … And when he wants to come back and do ‘Curb,’ we’d be thrilled.”

    My prayers are being answered! I can hardly wait to see Larry and Susie fighting again – they put a matador music every time Susie is about to tear Larry a new one – and that is funny, real funny. Thanks Larry and HBO and keep up the good work, please!

  7. Jonathan Mase Loves Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    Curb is the funniest series in the history of television and HBO (it’s not TV). It’s basically Seinfeld on steroids. It’s articles like this that make Variety great.

    “Life Daily” and “Choice or Life” being advertised here on the Variety page are conservative-biased and full of misinformation as well. Variety might want to be more discriminating.
