HBO has confirmed the guest cast for the upcoming ninth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Joining the festivities will be Elizabeth Banks (Pitch Perfect), Ed Begley, Jr. (Ghostbusters), Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls), Jimmy Kimmel (Jimmy Kimmel Live), Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), Nasim Pedrad (Scream Queens), and Elizabeth Perkins (Weeds). Typically Curb guest stars play themselves, but even if every guest listed here does the same, information about how they’ll come into the orbit of Larry and company has yet to be released.
Coming six years after the acclaimed eighth season, Curb Your Enthusiasm season nine will be welcoming back its full cast of regulars, including creator Larry David (Seinfeld), Cheryl Hines (Suburgatory), Jeff Garlin (The Goldbergs), Susie Essman (Those Who Can’t), and J.B. Smoove (The Millers), as well as series veterans Richard Lewis (Blunt Talk), Bob Einstein (Van Dyke and Company), Ted Danson (The Good Place), and Mary Steenburgen (The Last Man on Earth).
Curb Your Enthusiasm stars David as a semi-fictionalized version of himself – a semi-retired television writer/producer living in Los Angeles. The series features largely improvised dialogue and often involves the minutiae of daily life alongside the intrinsic awkwardness involved in a career in show business.
Season nine of Curb Your Enthusiasm is set to premiere Sunday, October 1st at 10:00 on HBO.
