Curb Your Enthusiasm has reached the end of its ninth season revival, but will the series return in 2018 or beyond?
If you do come back, would you pick up with the fatwa right where it left off? Or not, given the open ended-ness of it?
What this means for next season, if there is a next season — I’ll just say that we’re talking about talking about it. That’s the phase we are in right now. But I promise if we do do it again, there won’t be as long of a wait. When we’re thinking about ending a season, it’s not just in the back of your mind but also in the front of your mind that “This may be it.” If Curb never existed again, is this an OK way to go out? And Larry getting chased by an angry Iranian who wants to kill him seems like as good of a way to go as any. One thing that I thought was going to happen at the end of this season that didn’t happen is that Larry did not get an actual fatwa. Real Larry David getting a real fatwa for playing fake Larry David who got a fake fatwa for doing a musical about Salman Rushdie getting a real fatwa didn’t happen. The real fatwa has remained elusive, but I’m very hopeful.
So if this were to be the end, do you both feel satisfied today?
If that were the last Curb, I would be pretty satisfied. I thought the season finale was a great way to wrap up all the different story threads we’d been exploring all year. But I will say this to anyone who is now going, “Oh no, it’s never coming back” — the only way there can be another season is if Larry feels creatively that he has ideas for it. I’m willing to bet that he’s going to get himself into some more awkward situations.
Do you want Curb Your Enthusiasm to be cancelled or renewed for a 10th season? Stay tuned for the final verdict…
