HBO's beloved series "Curb Your Enthusiasm" is set to return for a ninth season, the cable network has announced.
The series ran for eight critically hailed seasons on HBO before signing off in 2011, however, creator Larry David always left the door open for a possible continuation. It remains HBO's longest-running show to date.
“We’re thrilled that Larry has decided to do a new season of CURB and can’t wait to see what he has planned,” said Casey Bloys, president of programming for the network. "Curb Your Enthusiasm" stars David -- who also co-created "Seinfeld" -- as an exaggerated version of himself and follows his adventures with friends and total strangers.
When asked why he decided to return to the series, David waxed poetic: “In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, ‘I left, I did nothing, I returned.’”
