Palisadian Larry David will return to the small screen for the 11th season of the hit comedy series “Curb Your Enthusiasm” on HBO, according to a recent announcement by Amy Gravitt, executive vice president of programming.
In “Curb,” David portrays a fictionalized version of himself as a semi-retired television writer and producer surrounded by a steady cast of characters.
With the pandemic underway, it is anyone’s guess what show creator David, who also writes for the series, has planned.
“This past season tapped into the zeitgeist in such an uncomfortably delightful way,” Gravitt shared in a statement. “Larry is already busy writing, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store.”
The cast includes Jeff Garlin (“Arrested Development,” “The Goldbergs”) as his best friend and manager, Susie Essman (“Broad City”) as Garlin’s wife, Cheryl Hines (“Suburgatory”) as his now-ex-wife and J.B. Smoove (“The Millers”) as David’s housemate and pal.
In recurring roles, comic actor Ted Danson (“The Good Place”) and comedian Richard Lewis (“Anything But Love”) played fictionalized versions of themselves.
The locales shot in the series are in and around Los Angeles, except one season was filmed in New York. Local Palisades neighborhoods are featured prominently in earlier episodes, including a home in The Huntington.
“To keep the narrative spontaneous, the series is shot without a script and cast members are given scene outlines and improvise lines as they go,” according to an HBO statement.
The series, which originally premiered in 2000, has aired over 100 episodes to date. The series ended in 2011 after eight seasons, but then came back in 2017.
Prior to “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” Executive Producer Jeff Schaffer and David formerly worked together on “Seinfeld.”
Episodes run about 28 minutes. The release date has not been set.
