Earlier in the year, Larry David mischievously waved a “next season notebook” under the nose of the president of HBO, who has pretty much given David a carte blanche to make new Curb Your Enthusiasm episodes anytime he wants.
The fact that he has a ton of notes for a potential season 9 was a good sign, but far from confirmation that fictionalised Larry would be returning to our screens.
It seems the idea of a comeback is lingering with David though, who apparently has this week been discussing a new season and possibly a movie with Curb director Jeff Schaffer.
Radio host and friend of Schaffer, Chris Law, tweeted:
Jeff Schaffer says he had dinner this weekend w Larry David. A Curb Your Enthusiasm movie was discussed, as was an additional season #CYE— Chris Law (@ChrisLaw) September 15, 2015
It's very encouraging news that David is courting his old collaborator with regards to new episodes, and maybe if I keep writing enough of these damn stories HBO will finally get the wheels in motion.
Though David has been coy about the prospect of new Curb, the show is definitely not out of his system.
Last year, HBO president Michael Lombardo asked him if he should ”emotionally get Curb out of [his] head," to which the Seinfeld creator replied: "No, no, no, no, no."
