HBO's Curb To Run Again In 2011


Larry David will give fans of his curmudgeonly comedy another season.

Premium network HBO has renewed Curb Your Enthusiasm for a 10-episode eighth season, with production set to begin this summer in Los Angeles and New York.

The eighth season is scheduled to make its debut on HBO in 2011. The most recent Curb season, featuring the Seinfeld reunion arc, concluded in November.

"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?' But he always finds a way. We can't wait to see what he does in season eight," said Michael Lombardo, president programming group and west coast operations at HBO, in announcing the renewal.

"After much soul searching -- and by the way, it was nowhere to be found -- I have decided to do another season of Curb," said David 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."

Those interested in getting a fresh dose of Enthusiasm can turn to TV Guide Network in June, when the service will begin running the syndicated version of the series, replete with a forum where panelists can dissect David's misanthropic musings and actions.
