HBO announced Thursday that Curb Your Enthusiasm will return for a 10th season.
“We are thrilled that Larry will be back with his uniquely acerbic wit and comedic sensibility,” said HBO president of programming Casey Bloys in a statement.
“As I’ve said many times, when one has the opportunity to annoy someone, one should do so,” series creator and star Larry David added.
Season 9 featured the fictional Larry promoting his new project,”Fatwa! The musical,” based on Salman Rushdie’s real life experiences after Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini called for his death. On the show, this spurred the Ayatollah to call for a fatwa on Larry, forcing him to look over his shoulder at every turn, all the while confronting one awkward social interaction after another in everyday life.
Why we care: Besides it being an absolutely brilliant show, Iranian-American actress/comedian Nasim Pedrad was a guest in season 9. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that she will be back for season 10!
In case you missed it: In season 9, Larry offends a lesbian couple (Julie Goldman, Nasim Pedrad) planning their wedding by insisting the wrong woman has chosen to be the groom. “I don’t see the bride vibe,” he informs Goldman’s more masculine character, Betty, who is Jeff’s barber.
