The show is set to return Jan. 19 on the premium cabler, with David once again playing a fictionalized version of himself as he stumbles from one faux-pas to the next.
“As I’ve said many times, when one has the opportunity to annoy someone, one should do so,” as David put it when the season 10 renewal was announced almost exactly two years ago.
Season 10 will “continue to prove how seemingly trivial details of one’s day-to-day life – a cold cup of coffee, a stained shirt, a missing toothbrush – can precipitate a chain of misfortune to hilarious effect,” per HBO. The series is famously shot without a script, as cast members are given only outlines of scenes and often improvise lines.
“Curb Your Enthusiasm” returned for a ninth season in 2017 following a six year absence from television. Season 9 garnered four Emmy nominations in 2018, including for best comedy series and best lead actor in a comedy series for David.
Returning series regulars for season 10 include David, Susie Essman, Jeff Garlin, Cheryl Hines, Richard Lewis and JB Smoove. Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy is one of the new cast members joining for season 10, as Variety exclusively reported. The exact nature of Tweedy’s role is being kept under wraps.
“Curb Your Enthusiasm” was created by and stars Larry David. David executive produces along with Garlin, Jeff Schaffer and Gavin Polone. Bob Einstein also starred in the series as Marty Funkhouser, but he passed away in January of this year.
HBO also released a trailer for the new season:
