Good news for those of us who are major fans of actor, comedian and producer Larry David. HBO has announced that Larry will be back for more comedy and angst when their hit series “Curb Your Enthusiasm” returns for an eighth season.
Larry David says the decision to do more was reached “after much soul-searching — and by the way, it was nowhere to be found.”
“Curb” is a larger-than-life depiction of its star’s neurotic world. It begins taping 10 new episodes in Los Angeles and New York this summer. HBO said in its announcement Tuesday that they are slated to debut next year.
Along with “Seinfeld” co-creator David, “Curb” stars Cheryl Hines as his wife, Cheryl. Jeff Garlin plays his manager, Jeff, and Susie Essman is Jeff’s wife, Susie. More good news- if these means Larry and wonderful Cheryl Hines are back as a couple.
“Curb” had concluded its seventh season in November with the excellent Seinfeld reunion episodes. The series already is HBO’s longest-running scripted comedy or drama series. Scripted is an interesting term to apply to this largely improvised format. The actors work from an outline….no dialogue to learn.
