'Curb Your Enthusiasm': Larry David says 'pretty good chance' we'll get more. YES!
Here is possibly the best news I can imagine seeing on a rainy Monday morning: At a recent Curb Your Enthusiasm panel, Reuters reports that Larry David said “I think there’s a pretty good chance” he’ll do another season of his HBO series. “Not definite yet, but we’re working on some stuff,” he added. It’s never a sure thing that LD will decide to keep going with Curb — and if he’d wanted to end on the Costanzan high note of last year’s brilliant season 7, I wouldn’t have blamed him. But this is so much better.
Reuters leads with the fact that David has ruled out any further Seinfeld reunions, which seems fairly obvious. The reunion was one of my favorite arcs on any television program ever, but there’s no need to revisit something he’s nailed so well already. (Did he also rule out any further organ-transplant plotlines?) Otherwise, the potential season 8 is wide open. Are Larry and on-screen wife Cheryl actually together again? Who knows! David did say that the great Leon Black (J.B. Smoove) will “probably” be back, which is just wonderful. The more Leon time we get, the happier I’ll be. I wouldn’t even mind if the next season of Curb resembled Leon Black: How We Dos It, the hypothetical Leon-centric spin-off that Smoove pitched in a Vibe.com Q&A last fall.
What would you like to see on the next season of Curb Your Enthusiasm? Bear in mind: Jeff Garlin told the same panel that of all the thousands of plot suggestions strangers have given him, “I’ve never heard one funny one.” Having said that, maybe yours will be the first idea the show takes seriously…
