HBO orders 8th season of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’

Larry David has confirmed that HBO is on board for another season of the popular unscripted comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm.

The show, which features Larry David as himself generally flung into any manner of awkward situations, has been critically acclaimed since it premiered in 2000. Of the decision to do another season, David says:

“After much soul-searching – and by the way, it was nowhere to be found – I have decided to do another season of Curb,” creator Larry David said 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 here somewhere or perhaps in the rugged mountainous regions of Pakistan.”

Production of the series will begin sometime this summer and episodes will be shot in New York and Los Angeles. Fans will have to wait until “sometime in 2011,” however, for new episodes of the show. David hasn’t disclosed details on what the new episodes may center around, but has ruled out any further appearances of the Seinfeld cast.
