Turns out Larry David had a pretty, pretty good time filming the HBO staple’s ninth season—so much so that he’s already game for more. HBO has officially announced that the Seinfeld creator’s cynical, yet lovable fictional self will return for season 10.
“As I’ve said many times, when one has the opportunity to annoy someone, one should do so,” said David in a statement.
Curb premiered in 2000, with new seasons airing every year or two through season 8 in 2011. The show then went on indefinite hiatus until this year’s ninth season which concluded Dec. 3. The season reunited the cast of David, Jeff Garlin, Cheryl Hines, Susie Essman, and JB Smoove, and featured guest stars such as Elizabeth Banks, Lauren Graham, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Nick Offerman, and Bryan Cranston, among others.
“The truth is, Larry had so much fun last season that he wants to do it again,” executive producer Jeff Schaffer told EW. “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.”
What will Schaffer spill about 10th go-around? Not much.
“I wish I could tell you everything about next year because that would mean that we’re actually done writing it. But that is not the case. Here’s one thing I can tell you that did not happen. Larry wasn’t killed. He does not come back like in the movie Ghost and make sweet love to Cheryl at a Brentwood Color Me Mine.”
