Much of Curb’s Season 10 revolved around David opening his coffee shop, Latte Larry’s

2020 just got a bit sunnier. Or darker. It all depends on whether you look at things as Larry does. HBO announced today (June 30) that it has renewed the Emmy® and Golden Globe-winning comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm, starring Larry David, for an eleventh season.

“This past season tapped into the zeitgeist in such an uncomfortably delightful way,” said the network’s EVP Programming, Amy Gravitt. “Larry is already busy writing, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store.”

Adds David, “Believe me, I’m as upset about this as you are. One day I can only hope that HBO will come to their senses and grant me the cancellation I so richly deserve.”

Originally debuting on HBO in 2001 and presenting 100 episodes to date, Curb Your Enthusiasm stars Seinfeld co-creator David as an over-the-top version of himself in an unsparing but tongue-in-cheek depiction of his fictionalized life. The series’ ten-episode tenth season debuted January 19, 2020 and brought back series veterans including Susie Essman, Jeff Garlin, Cheryl Hines, Richard Lewis, J.B. Smoove and Emmy® winner Ted Danson.

The comedy series continues to prove how seemingly trivial details of one’s day-to-day life – a cold cup of coffee, a stained shirt, a missing toothbrush – can precipitate a chain of misfortune to hilarious effect. To keep the narrative spontaneous, the series is shot without a script and cast members are given scene outlines and improvise lines as they go.

Through its first nine seasons, CYE has earned 43 primetime Emmy Award nominations. It’s won only two. Despite its eight nominations for Outstanding Comedy Series, it’s never earned one for that category.

Season eleven credits: Curb Your Enthusiasm is created by Larry David; executive producers, Larry David, Jeff Garlin, Jeff Schaffer, Gavin Polone; co-executive producer, Laura Streicher; consulting producer, Jon Hayman.
