David had his own statement to make in the renewal announcement, and it was predictably self-deprecating. “Believe me, I’m as upset about this as you are,” the comedian joked. “One day I can only hope that HBO will come to their senses and grant me the cancellation I so richly deserve.”
All kidding aside, David appears to be the one with the power to pull the plug. Ahead of the premiere of season 10, Casey Bloys, the President of Programming at HBO, explained to Deadline, “The deal with Larry is that he tells us when he is ready to go. If he tells us he wants to do more, we’ll do more.”
So, don’t count out more seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm down the road. At the time of writing, we’ve got no news about casting or a release date for season 11. In addition to David, the other core cast members from the show — Cheryl Hines, Jeff Garlin, Susie Essman, and J. B. Smoove — returned for season 10. The latest season also featured frequent guest stars Jon Hamm and Ted Danson, among others. Here’s hoping they return for season 11.
Similarly, no plot details have been released. However, considering the last season tackled #MeToo and Trump, expect the news of the day to make its way onto the show.
