Fans of Curb Your Enthusiasm are accustomed to long waits between seasons of Larry David‘s HBO series, with six years between the release of the 8th and 9th seasons, but thankfully we haven’t had to wait quite so long for the upcoming 10th season. Larry David’s long-running comedy series will be returning to our screens next month and HBO has released a short teaser for the new season which finds David struggling with a toaster. That is all.
Jeff Garlin, who plays Larry’s best friend and manager, teased on The Last Laugh podcast last month that the tenth season is his favourite. “It’s my favorite season. 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,” Garlin said. Unfortunately, the 10th season won’t include the character of Marty Funkhouser due to the death of Bob Einstein earlier this year. “That was such a hit to all of us at Curb Your Enthusiasm, because he was our friend,” Garlin said. “And we rose above it, but boy that hurt.” Garlin added that while Marty won’t appear in the new season, his character will be mentioned, but they won’t be killing him off. “By the way, no, we don’t talk about his character dying on the show,” Garlin said. “Why do we need that on a comedy show? That doesn’t fit on our show. There is no melancholy on Curb Your Enthusiasm.“
The tenth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm will debut on HBO in January.
