“Curb Your Enthusiasm” fans can rest assured, their favorite comedy will be coming back to HBO next year. Following the comedy’s season-nine finale on December 3, the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning comedy series will return to HBO for its tenth season in 2018. The renewal was announced today by Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming. The network also confirmed that production will begin next spring, with additional details to be announced as the show moves further along in production.

The show has been on a bit of a winning-streak with critics these past few months. The series just received two Screen Actors Guild Award nominations, one for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series (Larry David) and another for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. The show originally debuted back in 2001, and since its first season has offered up 90 hilarious episodes. “Curb Your Enthusiasm” stars “Seinfeld” co-creator Larry David as an over-the-top version of himself in an unsparing but tongue-in-cheek depiction of his fictionalized life. Season nine brought back series veterans Jeff Garlin, Susie Essman, J.B. Smoove, Cheryl Hines, Richard Lewis, Bob Einstein, Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen.

“We are thrilled that Larry will be back with his uniquely acerbic wit and comedic sensibility,” said Bloys.

Larry David added, “As I’ve said many times, when one has the opportunity to annoy someone, one should do so.”

The comedy series was created by Larry David; and is executive produced by Larry David, Jeff Garlin and Jeff Schaffer. If you need a comedy to hold you over while HBO shows like “Game of Thrones” and “Silicone Valley” are filming, we highly recommend it.

HBO also had a terrific showing during the Golden Globes nominations. The network picked up 6 nominations for “Big Little Lies,” including Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, 2 for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television (Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon), Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television (Alexander Skarsgård) and 2 for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television (Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley).
