Is Curb Your Enthusiasm done? Larry David seemed to indicate that the popular HBO comedy series may not return, but he won’t say for sure what’s up with the show.
Fans of HBO series like Curb Your Enthusiasm are accustomed to long waits for their favorite shows to return, and like The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, True Blood, and now The Newsroom before it, Curb is on a long hiatus.
How long? Try two years — that’s how much time has passed since Curb Your Enthusiasm episodes have hit the small screen. And as David’s new HBO project Clear History is set to debut, the star admits that he did the movie because he was still on the fence about Curb.
David was queried on Curb Your Enthusiasm’s future at Thursday’s Television Critics Association’s fall TV previews, and he replied honestly:
“That’s not such a good question. I have not [made a decision.] I don’t know. I really don’t know. I couldn’t say. Ask me in six months.”
Larry continued in a Curb-like way, adding:
“I’m just an indecisive fellow. You should see me at a restaurants. It’s a big decision to decide to do a season of that show. I don’t take it lightly.”
Of Clear History, he explains the impetus to change it up:
“I was thinking about Curb or thinking about doing a movie and I thought, you know, perhaps it’s time I try something else so I decided to do the movie. I was thinking of either doing one or the other. I just thought it was time to try something else.”
If you’re among the Curb Your Enthusiasm fans hoping for a new season, the news may not be great — but you can catch David when Clear History premieres Saturday, August 10 on HBO.
