Jeff Garlin Estimates a “51 Percent” Chance of More ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Episodes


At a promotional appearance for his ABC sitcom The Goldbergs, Jeff Garlin told television critics the chances for a return of his other TV show—Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm—fall firmly into the realm of possible, if not probable.

Hitfix reports Garlin gauged the chances for a Curb return at “51 percent.”

Discussing The Goldbergs’ third season at the biannual Television Critics Association press tour, Garlin reiterated that his Goldbergs contract includes an escape clause, should David decide he’s up for another season of Curb—which they “have talked about… but that’s the extent of it.” The eighth season closer of Curb, which was neither advertised nor devised as a series finale, aired in September of 2011; David’s deal with HBO allows him to do more shows if he’d like, but he’s under no obligation to.

“It’s the only show in all of television that only moves forward because the creator is only basing his decision on creativity,” Garlin told the television critics. “Larry David is so goddamn rich that he doesn’t have to do anything unless it’s good! He doesn’t want to embarrass himself. So it’s pretty pure. I don’t know how many shows disregard that completely.”
