The hit HBO show Curb Your Enthusiasm, which originally started back in 2000. Created and led by Larry David, whose creation of Seinfeld already made him legendary, the show follows him going through a close-to-real-life version of himself going through all kinds of weird and off-kilter predicaments and mishaps he gets into with friends and complete strangers.
Over the past 19 years, the show has had 9 seasons' worth of episodes. And now, Curb star Jeff Garlin, who plays Larry's best friend Jeff and is also Executive Producer, announced that the show will return for a 10th season starting Sunday, January 19th.
Garlin revealed some details on The Last Laugh podcast, and here's what he said:
“It’s my favorite season. I know there are other seasons that people will like as much, if not more, but for me, the premise of [this] season is my favorite one we’ve ever done.”
One challenge was dealing with the loss of comedian Bob Einstein, who was famous as stuntman Super Dave Osborne but also played Marty Funkhouser on the show. Garlin said, "That was such a hit to all of us at Curb Your Enthusiasm, because he was our friend. And we rose above it, but boy that hurt." Garlin mentioned on the podcast, "No, we don’t talk about his character dying on the show. Why do we need that on a comedy show? That doesn’t fit on our show. There is no melancholy on Curb Your Enthusiasm.”
There is, however, a lot of quirkiness. Another character Garlin mentioned for Season 10 will be played by Vince Vaughn - and he will not be playing himself on the show.
Stay tuned, Season 10 of Curb Your Enthusiasm starts Sunday, January 19th on HBO! Like you couldn't wait for 2020 to get here anyway, right?
