Premiere of HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" Season 7 - ArrivalsA "Friends" reunion may never happen, but another beloved comedy could be returning to the airwaves: Larry David is reportedly interested in making a ninth season of his improvisational HBO show "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

That's the word from "Curb" co-star J.B. Smoove, who revealed in an interview on "The Rich Eisen Show" that he recently spoke with David about the possibility. According to the actor, he called David about a month ago, and the creator brought up the subject himself, telling Smoove, "I'm thinking about coming back" for more "Curb."

"He has not said no, which puts us in a great position," Smoove told Eisen. " ... And if Larry does not say no, there's a possibility he may say yes."

Smoove also said that David asked him if he'd reprise his "Curb" role if the series does indeed return. The actor told Eisen he was definitely on board.

"I'll move anything I'm doing to the side for 'Curb Your Enthusiasm,'" Smoove said. "Which would be a fabulous thing to do. Season nine would be fabulous."

And Smoove isn't the only one talking about more "Curb." David Mandel, who worked alongside David as a producer and director on the series, recently spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the subject, and said the likelihood of a revival is high.

"The neat thing about Larry David is actually I do believe one day he will do it," Mandel told THR. "And if he picks up five years from now, it'll be really fascinating to see what 'Curb' is like in five years."

We agree. We'll try to curb our own enthusiasm while we wait for definitive word from David.
