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!

Off the air since 2011, Curb Your Enthusiasm will officially return for a ninth season at an undetermined date, according to HBO’s confirmation. Says HBO’s new boss Casey Bloys, “We’re thrilled that Larry has decided to do a new season of CURB and can’t wait to see what he has planned.”

As for David himself? Enthusiasm as curbed as ever:

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

Previously, star Jeff Garlin gave slightly better than 50/50 odds Curb would return), while reports last year claimed Curb Season 8 writer and The League co-creator Jeff Schaffer met with David to discuss a possible Curb movie, if not a new season. David himself said in 2014 that a ninth season was unlikely, but then again, time spent with SNL might have created some new inspiration.

More Curb Your Enthusiasm would certainly offer a boon to HBO’s current lineup, but what and when should we expect the new season?
