If 2016 wasn't already the best year for TV show revivals and returns, HBO's latest announcement makes it pretty ... pretty ... pretty good.
In a plot twist almost as unexpected as Larry David pulling off his performance in The Producers, the Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning sitcom Curb Your Enthusiasm is coming back to HBO.
Casey Bloys, the president of HBO programming, announced the ninth season return of the cult classic on June 14. ""We're thrilled that Larry has decided to do a new season of CURB and can't wait to see what he has planned," he said in a press release.
David had a "typical Larry" explanation for coming back to HBO: "In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, 'I left, I did nothing, I returned.' "
Many details of the ninth season are still unknown and will be announced as they are confirmed. Though if Curb's planning process is anything like its improv-based writing process, those details won't emerge until the show does.
