Well, it’s about damn time! The Emmy and Golden Globe winning Curb Your Enthusiasm has finally been confirmed for a ninth season after years of Larry David seemingly making it clear that he has no intentions to return to the critically acclaimed comedy series on HBO.

While we don’t have a confirmed air date, the news was made official today by Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming. “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 quite brief press release.

As for why he has decided to return to the show which sees the Seinfeld co-creator play a wildly over the top version of himself in an unsparing but tongue-in-cheek depiction of his life, David added: “In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, ‘I left, I did nothing, I returned.’”

It’s a return which is sure to be met with open arms by fans of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Whether this will be the final season is unclear, though it definitely feels like this is a series which has years left in the tank despite having already aired 80 episodes in total to date.
