Larry Sanders Show returning to HBO
Larry and Hank will soon return to late night.
An HBO spokeswoman confirmed to EW that reruns of The Larry Sanders Show, which aired from 1992 to 1998 on the premium network, will come back at some point. Though there is no timetable, the episodes eventually will run on HBO and its streaming platforms.
The Larry Sanders Show was a show within a show starring Garry Shandling, who died Thursday at 66. Some of TV’s best comedy writers cycled through Shandling’s writers room, including Judd Apatow, Steve Levitan, Peter Tolan, and Carol Leifer.
In a recent episode of Jerry Seinfeld’s web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Shandling and the Seinfeld star reminisced about how their critically-acclaimed sitcoms shot on the same lot and at the same time in Studio City, Calif.
Shandling’s publicist said the 66-year-old funny man died of a heart attack.
