Seinfeld seems about the least likely sitcom to consider revival, to a point the idea formed the spine for an entire Curb Your Enthusiasm season. That said, Jerry Seinfeld has apparently at least been approached for a live episode return, and may himself return for Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 9.
Curb Your Enthusiasm
The low-maintenance production of Curb Your Enthusiasm offered hope that Larry David’s ninth season wouldn’t take too long to assemble, and things are looking good for 2017. HBO bosses believe Curb Season 9 will start shooting as early as this fall, while Larry David works out the potential returning cast.
It remains unclear exactly how long the ninth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm will take to get Larry David before the camera, but it appears as if yet another familiar face will be joining the fray. In addition to J.B. Smoove, Cheryl Hines is now officially expected to reprise her role as Larry’s ex-wife.
Larry David surprised all of us with the news that, rumors be damned, Curb Your Enthusiasm would officially return for a ninth season on HBO, however light on details it seemed. Now, executive producer Jeff Schaffer says “it won’t be long” before fans have new episodes to look forward to, and perhaps a full ten at that.
Mere days ago, Curb Your Enthusiasm star J.B. Smoove stirred the ever-swirling pot of Season 9 rumors with reports that creator Larry David was thinking about coming back, but few knew how seriously to take them. Well, prettay, pretty, prettay great news for all, as HBO officially confirms Curb Your Enthusiasm returning for Season 9!
Wonderful as it was having Larry David grace our TVs this past season of SNL, fans will always fall back on the hope for another season of Curb Your Enthusiasm down the line. The creator’s HBO invitation remains open, but according to star and comedian J.B. Smoove, David might be actively thinking about a return to his HBO comedy at long last.
If you're going to have the great Larry David host a full episode of SNL, there are two obvious areas of parody. First, you simply have to give him more to do as Vermont senator Bernie Sanders, whose unlikely showing in the recent Democratic presidential primaries have made David a regular guest star this season. Second, you need to riff on Curb Your Enthusiasm, his (possibly) late, great HBO sitcom that redefined cringe comedy. And in this case, SNL found a a way to combine the two.
Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm creator Larry David has been no stranger to SNL in recent months, between the 40th Anniversary and his Bernie Sanders impression, but this Saturday will be a well-deserved homecoming for the former staff writer. Or not, as David doesn’t really want you to watch anyway, judging by the first promos.
Any Curb Your Enthusiam fan well-knows that Larry David comes and goes as he pleases, with HBO extending open invitations to return whenever the Seinfeld creator has a new idea. We thought we’d made peace with waiting, but a new report suggests David has begun discussing a possible Curb movie, if not a new season.
We’ve heard before of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ and ‘Seinfeld’ creator Larry David’s open HBO invitation to return for another season, but the former series may have the latter to blame for its holdup. A recent interview sees David doubting his return for another season of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm,’ as the ‘Seinfeld’ finale may have soured him on wrapping things up.
