Larry David, still searching for his soul, will do another season of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'
HBO’s favorite misanthrope is coming back for more.
The network announced Tuesday that Larry David has agreed to do an eighth season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” the comedy in which he plays a more neurotic version of himself.
“After much soul-searching – and by the way, it was nowhere to be found – I have decided to do another season of ‘Curb,’ ” David said in a statement. “I look forward to the end of shooting, when I can once again resume the hunt for my elusive soul. I know it’s here somewhere or perhaps in the rugged mountainous regions of Pakistan.”
The program, which featured a reunion of David’s “Seinfeld” colleagues last season, ranks as HBO’s longest-running scripted series. The upcoming 10-episode season will air in 2011.
“Larry always loves to paint himself into a corner, and after the incredibly wonderful seventh season of ‘Curb,’ you have to ask, ‘How does he ever top this?’” said Michael Lombardo, president of HBO’s programming group and West Coast operations. "But he always finds a way. We can’t wait to see what he does in Season 8.”
