THE pandemic-delayed 11th season of Larry David’s iconic series Curb Your Enthusiasm is set to debut on HBO in October, it has been announced.
“You’re allowed to be happy, but not in front of me,” read a social media post last month, above a production photo of David hoisting up a small dog.
HBO announced in June last year it was renewing the series, but did not announce a date because of delays related to the pandemic.
David was among the many celebrities urging Americans to take COVID precautions, recording a video for the Los Angeles County Department of Health last year telling his fans to “stay in the house, sit on the couch and watch TV”.

Meanwhile, David “screamed” at prominent Jewish lawyer Alan Dershowitz at a popular convenience store on Martha’s Vineyard last month, the New York Post reported, over the latter’s ties to the Donald Trump camp in recent years.
“It’s disgusting. Your whole enclave – it’s disgusting. You’re disgusting!” said David.
After David critiqued him for cozying up to former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Dershowitz told the Post that he worked with Pompeo, a former student of his at Harvard, on the Trump administration’s Israel policy.
“While [David] was writing bad jokes, I was helping to bring about peace in the Middle East,” he said.
