CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM Is Going to New York for Season Eight

     May 18, 2010

Larry David keeps finding great ways to change up Curb Your Enthusiasm.  Last year was the brilliant Seinfeld reunion and the year before that we had The Blacks.  Now, for the show’s eighth season, David is going back to his roots.  The New York Post reports [via Vulture] that the majority of season eight—which is set to air in 2011—will be shot in New York City.  Susie Essman, who plays Jeff Garlin’s obnoxious wife on the show, let it slip that she’s relieved they’re shooting in NYC because “Now I get to sleep in my own bed. Let [the rest of the cast] stay in hotels.”  Essman also revealed that while she and Garlin usually get to see the season’s outline ahead of time, they haven’t seen anything so far for this season.

Back in March, David mentioned that because of the Toyota recall, there might be a storyline involving his character’s beloved Prius.  David also said that it’s likely JB Smoove would be returning as fan-favorite character Leon.  If that’s still the case, it looks like Larry will have some great company on his trip to New York.
