Next month will mark the fifth anniversary of Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s last episode. And by I mean last, I mean the latest episode, since Curb hasn’t really ended officially. This is typical Larry David, “ehhhh” decision-making at its best. To him, bringing back his beloved show is like the character Larry making a decision on which pair of pants to buy, and that’s why we love him. But, his run as Bernie Sanders on SNL looks to be coming to a close, and even though he’s busy, maybe now is the time for the soon-to-be 69-year-old to get back on HBO to share his comic genius. His co-star JB Smoove seems to think it might be happening, finally.
He said as much on the Rich Eisen show.
“I call Larry every two weeks and I check on him because he’s old,” Smoove joked. “He’s busy, he’s a busy man so I always check on older people. No offense, Larry. So I check on Larry to make sure he’s good. I’ve been seeing him on SNL a lot, making sure he’s not over exerting himself. Just making sure that he’s good and not overly exerting himself.
So I called Larry like two weeks ago and I said, ‘Hey, Larry man.’ I just talk about regular stuff with him. It’s not always Curb stuff. But this time, aha! This time, he brought up Curb Your Enthusiasm. I don’t ever bring it up. He brought it up this time.”
David has said in the past that he might be down to make a Curb movie, and any fan would be willing to have that over nothing, but a final season to wrap up everything would be great. Just don’t stress the final episode, Larry. We know you don’t like them.
