During the Television Critics Association executive sessions today, plenty of news about the future of HBO’s ongoing original programming came out of the woodwork. Quentin Schaffer, Executive Vice President of Corporate Communications, and Casey Bloys, president of HBO Programming, offered some updates on the future of shows like True Detective, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Ballers, The Leftovers and Project Greenlight.
In addition, you’ll be happy to hear that a Deadwood movie is still in the works, along with plenty of other original movie projects Plus, HBO subscribers with either HBO GO or HBO Now will soon be able to stream all the episodes of The Larry Sanders Show, in honor of the passing of Garry Shandling earlier this year.
Find out about True Detective season 3, the long-awaited return of Curb Your Enthusiasm and much more below. Read More »
HBO has some pretty, pretty, pretty good news for us today. The network has officially announced a ninth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, nearly five years after it last aired an episode. The news doesn’t come entirely as a surprise — it was just a few days ago that actor J.B. Smoove was telling press Larry David wanted to bring back the show — but now those plans look much firmer.

Season eight of Curb Your Enthusiasm ended on an exceedingly satisfying note. Larry and Leon (JB Smoove) were enjoying a beautiful day in Paris, but, Larry David being Larry David, they quickly found themselves in an argument with a stranger over something. If that ends up being the series finale, it’s a fitting conclusion. According to Smoove, though, that may not have been the end of HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Below, Smoove discusses a conversation he had with Larry David about more Curb Your Enthusiasm. Thankfully, David sounds more interested than ever before.

What happens when actor Michael Richards meets The Blacks or Krazee-Eyez Killa? Talk about Trial and Error. I’m pretty sure we’ll be satisfied by the results this fall, as the four cast members of Seinfeld are reuniting for multiple episodes of HBO‘s Curb Your Enthusiasm. While this marks Richards’s first appearance on the uncensored and legendary sitcom of Larry David (Seinfeld co-creator), Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus have all appeared to play and send-up themselves during Curb‘s six-season run. According to EW, the cast hasn’t appeared together on a scripted TV series since their show’s underwhelming finale 11 years ago.
It’ll be veddy cool to see the old sparks fly inside the Bald One’s neurotic, mishap-prone world; but I’m possibly more excited just to see Leon (J.B. Smoove) talk shit and lady advice to Larry again. Let us know what you and Bill Gates think in the comments.
You know something is funny when you ask yourself, “Oh f***, did her brother die from that,” before sending out an annoying, massive CC: July 4th email to your family’s family. Here we have the simplest of premises: Larry David, clad in signature blazer and T-shirt, delivering an anti-“The More You Know” PSA informing why the Silent Killer is cramping the style of the follicle-doomed. I have a flawed, patented pre-rehab theory that Jack Nicholson’s hair loss inspired him to become the greatest actor of a generation, but Larry David pwns the cul-de-sac to the point where it’s a eugenic advantage. Balding men haven’t received such a bold mission statement since Kingpin. Enjoy or die.
