Just a month after J.B. Smoove revealed the Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 9 premiere date will be on October 1, during the Roots Picninc in Philadelphia, HBO has released the first trailer and poster that confirm the date. Both the trailer and poster reveal the new tagline for this season, "He left. He did nothing. He returned," with series creator/star Larry David seen wearing a Julius Caesar costume. The actor/writer is dressed like Julius Caesar not because the show will go back to ancient times, but because the tagline is a riff on a famous quote attributed to the historical figure.
Back in June 2016, HBO issued a press release confirming that Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 9 is in fact happening, which included a quote from Larry David, who stated, "In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, I left, I did nothing, I returned." Of course, this was actually a riff on Julius Caesar's quote, "I came, I saw, I conquered." The trailer, which comes courtesy of HBO YouTube, doesn't feature any actual footage from this season, only showcasing Larry David doing his best Julius Caesar impressing while standing on a rotating pedestal, with the actor/writer/producer asking to go around again, because it's fun.
The Emmy-winning comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm, starring Larry David, returns for its ten-episode ninth season Sunday, October 1 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT), on HBO. The show brings back cast favorites Jeff Garlin, Susie Essman and JB Smoove, among many others. Larry David created and executive produces the series with Jeff Garlin and Jeff Schaffer. Production began on this new season back in November, which JB Smoove commemorated with a special video from the set, where he was trying to find Larry David. Now that the premiere date has finally been confirmed, it's possible that HBO may reveal a full cast list for this season in the near future.
While production was under way earlier this year, a number of other guest stars were ultimately revealed, but haven't been confirmed by HBO yet. Elizabeth Perkins and Lauren Graham have signed on for unspecified guest starring spots, while it was also revealed that Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen will return, with both actors playing themselves as they have since the series started back in 2000. While it has been 17 years since the series started, Larry David and HBO have come to an arrangement where he can essentially work on the show at his leisure, since he writes all of the episodes himself. Long before this season was confirmed, executive producer Jeff Schaffer teased that Larry David was discussing plans for a ninth season, plus a Curb Your Enthusiasm movie, but there has been nothing official about the movie just yet.
This trailer and poster arrives exactly six years after Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 8 premiered on HBO on Sunday, July 10, 2011. While the first three seasons aired in consecutive years, between 2000 and 2002, the fourth season debuted two years later in 2004, with the fifth arriving a year later in 2005 and Season 6 debuting in 2007. Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 7 debuted in 2008, with Season 8 arriving in 2011, making the six-year gap between Season 8 and Season 9 the longest in the show's history. Take a look at the new trailer and poster for Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 9, as the countdown begins towards the October 1 premiere date.
