As the star of the cult series might say, today was a "pretty, prett-tt-y, prett-tt-tt-y good" day for fans of the series. HBO announced today that Larry David's 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' will be returning to the premium cable network on October 1st. "Curb" will return to HBO after a five-year absence from Television. This also makes 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' HBO's longest-running comedy having premiered in 2000 and having aired 80 episodes since. HBO president Casey Bloys previously stated, “We’re thrilled that Larry has decided to do a new season of ‘Curb’ and can’t wait to see what he has planned.”

HBO releases 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' trailer alongside release date

In addition to announcing the release date, HBO also released a teaser trailer to compliment the announcement.

The trailer opens with a man wearing a toga. As the camera pushes in, triumphant music begins to play as words incrementally pop-up to read, "He left, he did nothing, he returned." paraphrasing the words of the great Julius Caesar. It is then revealed that the man wearing the toga is no one other than the one and only Larry David. He interrupts the triumphant music to say, "That was good. Let's go around again. That's fun." after which the 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' theme music starts playing. You can check out the trailer below:

The whole 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' gang will return

For its ninth season, Variety reports the whole main 'Curb' cast will return. This includes David, Jeff Garlin ('The Goldbergs'), Cheryl Hines ('Son of Zorn'), JB Smoove ('Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles') and Susie Essman ('Those Who Can't).

Also, reportedly returning to the series is David's 'Curb' nemesis, Ted Danson ('The Good Place'), in addition to Danson's on-screen (and real world) wife, Mary Steenburgen ('The Last Man on Earth'). It is uncertain at this point whether other recurring characters of the show will return such as Richard Lewis ('Sandy Wexler'), Julia Louis-Dreyfus ('Veep'), Jerry Seinfeld ('Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee'), Jason Alexander ('TripTank'), Ben Stiller ('Zoolander 2'), David Schwimmer ('American Crime Story'), Kaitlin Olson ('Always Sunny in Philadelphia', 'The Mick'), Rosie O'Donnell ('The View') and Wanda Sykes ('Black-ish'). Working behind the scenes, HBO has brought back comedic geniuses Alec Berg and David Mandel who have since started their own successful HBO series with Silicon Valley and Veep respectfully.
