The last episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm aired in 2011, and star/creator Larry David has given no indication that a ninth season would be coming anytime soon — if ever.
However, bread crumbs of clues have been dropping during the Television Critics Association press tour, currently underway in L.A., of a Curb comeback.
Last week, HBO president Michael Lombardo claimed that David actually showed him script pages — although he admitted there was no further discussion beyond that — and now Curb co-star/exec producer Jeff Garlin reveals there’s a “decent”; chance we’ll see season nine… eventually.
During a session to promote ABC sitcom The Goldbergs, Garlin revealed a recent conversation with David gives him hope that the HBO hit will return.
“I’d say decent chance,”; said Garlin. “Not good. Not great. Decent — 51 per cent.”;
Of course, as he explained, the ultimate decision is up to one person: Larry David.
“Curb Your Enthusiasm is the only show that I know of in the history of television that only moves forward because the creator is basing his decision entirely on creativity,”; Garlin said. “Larry David is so ***damn rich he doesn’t have to do anything unless it’s good. He doesn’t want to embarrass himself. So it’s pretty pure. And I don’t know any shows that disregard that completely, whether or not how much money we’ll get.”;
