Television fans across the world were overjoyed in June when they learnt that ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ would finally be returning to our screens after a five-year absence. Ever since then they’ve been waiting patiently for news regarding exactly when we’ll get to see Larry David back on the small-screen again.

While that information still isn’t entirely forthcoming, the revelation that production on season 9 of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ has now come to an end suggests that we’re going to find out very, very soon indeed. That’s because Richard Lewis, who has been hilariously jostling with Larry David throughout ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’s’ run, took to Twitter on Monday morning to post an image of himself, his wife Joyce, Larry David, and director David Steinberg while also revealing that production had come to an end.

Richard Lewis wasn’t done, though. That’s because he also uploaded an image of himself, JB Smoove, and, of course, Larry David to once again show that the love is indeed very strong within the ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ family. Even if it doesn’t always seem that way on the show.

HBO are hoping that the new season of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ will be with audiences by the end of 2017. And with production having seemingly gone smoothly there’s no reason to expect that still won’t be the case, especially since five out of the show’s previous eight seasons have premiered in September.

At the moment, though, we’re still none the wiser about what the ninth season of the comedy will actually consist of. All that has been promised is controversy. That’s according to Mary Steenburgen, who will be popping up in the new batch of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ episodes alongside her husband Ted Danson.

When pushed for answers on what the ninth season will actually consist of, all that Mary Steenburgen would tell Entertainment Weekly was, “It will definitely cause people to ask me questions. We’re going to stir up a little bit of a hornet’s nest with it, I’m afraid, but it’s how he saw it and what he wanted to do.”

Steenburgen only added further intrigue when she explained, “There are aspects of it that are a little challenging for me. And I think for Ted, too. But it will be interesting. It will be really interesting … It’s a great experience. It’s the same people, and it’s Larry’s completely unique, bizarre, wonderful voice.”

Considering what Larry David has already put himself and his cast through, Steenburgen’s comments immediately get the mind racing. Hopefully we’ll find out the new ways that Larry David and ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ challenges Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, and the returning Jeff Garlin, Bob Eisenstein, Cheryl Hines, Richard Lewis, JB Smoove, and Susie Essman in the next few months. And if it can somehow top the previous ways that it has done just that then it promises to be pretty, pretty, pretty good.
