No further details were announced by HBO on Tuesday, but word that "Curb Your Enthusiasm" will live again should be enough to thrill its fans for now.

The eighth season aired in 2011, and, since then, David has remained tight-lipped over whether there would be more.

Premiering in 2000, the series was created by and stars David in a fictionalized version of himself as he stumbles into socially awkward situations. "Curb" has logged 80 episodes to date, which makes it HBO's longest-running scripted series.

Among David's projects since curbing his series: a hit Broadway play, "Fish in the Dark," which he wrote and starred in last year.
