Everyone’s favorite asshole is coming back as soon as January when the new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm is set to premiere on HBO. The show, which is now in its tenth season, has been fairly quiet about when, exactly, it would be returning to air after its 2017 season wrapped up. HBO had announced that ordered a tenth season, but little detail about it had been released until Tuesday, when Jeff Garlin spilled the beans that the show would be coming back as early as January 19th.
Garlin, who plays Larry’s manager on the show about Larry David written and created by Larry David, said that the upcoming season is his favorite out of all of the seasons thus far. Garlin revealed on The Daily Beast‘s Last Laugh Podcast this week that “I know there are other seasons that people will like as much, if not more, but for me, the premise of [this] season is my favorite one we’ve ever done.”
Season 10 To Honor Bob Einstein Without Killing Character
Little else about the tenth season, though, was revealed. However, Garlin did address the death of Bob Einstein, who played Marty Funkhouser on the show up until now. Einstein passed away in January of this year at age 76. He had been diagnosed with cancer shortly before, but his death came as a surprise to the rest of the cast, but Garlin revealed that the cast won’t talk about his death on season 10 of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
“Why do we need that on a comedy show? That doesn’t fit on our show. There is no melancholy on Curb Your Enthusiasm,” said Garlin on the Last Laugh Podcast. Einstein will, however, be memorialized as one of the show’s favorite characters. While Marty Funkhouser may live on, Garlin also revealed that Einstein’s death hit the rest of the cast hard.
Season 10: What We Can Expect
Neither HBO nor any of the cast and crew of Curb Your Enthusiasm have revealed much detail of what the tenth season will be about. Season 9, which had a six-year gap after season 11 wrapped up back in 2011, saw Larry David become the subject of a Fatwa for his death after he mocked the Ayatollah on a late-night television show.
It’s unlikely that the new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm will be anything short of incredible. But please, for the love of god, give us even more air time of Susie Greene (Susie Essman).
