Dying for more Curb Your Enthusiasm? Jeff Garlin teases ’51 percent’ chance

Hoping to see more of Larry David’s uncomfortably hilarious antics with a new season of HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm? According to cast member Jeff Garlin, who now stars in the popular ABC series The Goldbergs, there’s about a 51 percent chance of that happening, reports Deadline.

During a Q&A at the Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour, Garlin quipped that creator David is “so goddamned rich, he doesn’t have to do anything unless it’s good.”

He called working with David an “honor,” saying that David was the “best guy to do an improvised show with.” No arguments there. Each episode of David’s Curb famously starts with a script about 3 pages long — a general idea for the players to follow, as David works his socially-challenged magic.

The bottom line is that Curb Your Enthusiasm will only return if David gets his creative juices flowing and decides to pen another season’s worth of episode ideas. And it seems even The Goldbergs creator and executive producer Adam Goldberg is hoping for Garlin to continue his gig on his other show, noting that for Garlin to do The Goldbergs, it was made clear that Curb Your Enthusiasm would remain his priority as long as it was on the air – or should it return, rather.

While Garlin’s 51 percent estimation is a clever way of saying he believes the chances are just slightly in favor of a return, he did add that there’s a “decent chance” we’ll see more episodes of the show.

For those unfamiliar, Curb Your Enthusiam is a meta-comedy series that’s an evolution of sorts of David’s other mega-hit series, Seinfeld. In it, David plays a fictional version of himself (much like Jerry Seinfeld played a kinda-sorta version of himself) as he goes through his often mundane daily life as a semi-retired writer and producer in LA. Since a large portion of the dialogue in the show isn’t scripted, it requires a great deal of improv talent from the cast. David’s deadpan style makes it look easy.

The show ran for eight seasons, the last of which aired in 2011, after which the show went on an indefinite hiatus. David told Grantland last December that the “odds were against” a new season.

A lot can change in a few months.
