HBO has renewed Curb Your Enthusiasm for it’s 11th season, per The Hollywood Reporter. The specific date for when production will start on the 11th season remains unknown, largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The announcement was made three months after the completion of the 10th season.
The series, which first aired in 2001, will continue in the 2020s, marking the beginning of the third decade that the show has been on air. The last episode of the 10th season was the 100th episode of the show.
Larry David (Whatever Works, Seinfeld) created, writes, executive produces, and stars in the show as himself. David jokingly said of the renewal, “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” (Entertainment Weekly).
The success of the series is in large part due to its surprisingly honest humor, which tackles serious, real-life issues through comedy. Vice President Executive of HBO Programming Amy Gravitt praised the show, saying, “This past season tapped into the zeitgeist in such an uncomfortably delightful way. Larry is already busy writing, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store” (The Hollywood Reporter).Perhaps the most notable moment of season 10 was when David wore a Make America Great Again hat in order to avoid conversations with people.
Jeff Schaffer, another executive producer, is sure that it would be very difficult to run out of material for the show, telling Entertainment Weekly, “We’re still in the talking about talking-about-it stage. Between every season, we have to replenish. Luckily, detailing the social shortcomings of the Westside Angelenos is pretty much an evergreen business.” Although Schaffer stresses that they are in the preliminary stages of production, an 11th season will surely be produced.
