After six (!!) years without new episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm, Larry David & Co. are returning to HBO for a ninth season. The 10-episode season will premiere October 1 at 10 p.m. David confirmed the ninth season last June, explaining his decision to return to the show by saying, "In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, ‘I left, I did nothing, I returned.’”

The eighth season finale was written to serve as a possible series finale, in case David decided not to do another season of Curb. In 2012, HBO chairman and CEO Richard Plepler said David "essentially has carte blanche with us," according to Variety, so it was merely a waiting game to see when David wanted to shoot new episodes.

Those episodes wrapped production in March. Most of the show's main cast is set to return, including Jeff Garlin, Cheryl Hines, Susie Essman, and JB Smoove.

During the Curb hiatus, David starred in HBO's Clear History and performed one of the best political impressions SNL has ever seen, cameo-ing as Bernie Sanders during the 2016 presidential campaign.
