Oh, that wily J.B. Smoove, always giving away something. The Curb Your Enthusiasm star previously teased an October premiere for the long-awaited ninth season, and HBO now confirms with a first teaser and poster.

Just as Smoove said last month, Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 9 will debut on Sunday, October 1 at 10:00 P.M. In addition to the teaser above, check out the regal new poster below, as Larry David pokes fun at his absence.

In addition to Smoove, we know that the new season will also return to their roles Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, Jeff Garlin, Cheryl Hines and Susie Essman, adding Gilmore Girls star Lauren Graham. Additionally, Jeff Schaffer will take a leading executive producer role in the new run between fellow alum David Mandel (Veep) and Alec Berg (Silicon Valley).

HBO should offer more on Season 9 soon, but does October sound pret-ty, pret-ty, pret-ty good for more Curb?
