'Curb Your Enthusiasm' aired its final episode of Season 8 on September 11th, 2011. For the past few years, fans have been speculating if the show would ever return. Larry David would never officially rule out season 9 and as we learned from one of David's co-stars, J.B.Smoove, who plays Leon on the show that, "If Larry doesn't say no... there's always a possibility he is going to say yes."
In an interview with 'The Rich Eisen Show,' Smoove revealed that he frequently calls Larry David to check in on him because J.B. "always checks in on older people." During one of these calls, Larry David told Smoove that he is "seriously considering bringing the show back," and even went as far to ask Smoove his availability. Smoove replied that he "would move anything aside for another season of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.'"
Smoove is the second star of the show to suggest that there is a good chance season nine of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' could get made. Jeff Garlin, who plays Larry David's manager on the show, said he frequently talks to David and believes there is a "51% chance" that season 9 of the show happens.
Nothing is confirmed until we hear from Larry David himself. However, the probability of a season 9 of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' is looking, as Larry would say "pretty...pretty...good." Certainly enough time has passed for Michael J. Fox to accept Larry's excuse!
