Production on the next 10 episodes will begin this summer in Los Angeles and New York; the comedy will return to the pay cabler’s schedule sometime in 2011.

“After much soul searching — and by the way, it was nowhere to be found — I have decided to do another season of Curb,” said Larry David in a statement. “I look forward to the end of shooting, when I can once again resume the hunt for my elusive soul. I know it’s heresomewhere or perhaps in the rugged mountainous regions of Pakistan.” The single-camera series also stars Cheryl Hines as David’s wife Cheryl, Jeff Garlin as David’s manager Jeff and Susie Essman as Jeff’s wife Susie.

After 70 episodes, Curb is HBO’s longest-running scripted series. It concluded its seventh season last November.
