Larry David to Return for Sixth Season of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' With HBO

Bald and angry Larry David has finally agreed to return to HBO for a sixth season of "Curb Your Enthusiasm," but has yet to sign a contract with the network.

The comedy, a long-time staple of the pay-cable network's original programming, is expected to return either next summer or fall, according to sources close to the production. Filming could begin as early as October.

"They're debating exactly when it would air right now," an insider said.

It is believed that the entire cast has already inked deals with HBO to return for another 10 episodes and that David has verbally agreed to film a new season. "They're just waiting for signatures [on the contract] now," the source said.

HBO officials declined to comment yesterday.

The show, an improvised comedy loosely based on the life of David, the former executive producer of "Seinfeld," became popular for its wacky, uncomfortable situations that depict David - playing himself - getting into trouble and generally aggravating everyone around him.

It frequently features cameos by many of David's Hollywood friends, including Ted Danson, Wanda Sykes and Ben Stiller.

There's been speculation that "Seinfeld" alum Michael Richards might finally make a cameo appearance this year as he is the only member from the cast of the long-running NBC comedy who has yet to pop up as a guest star on "Curb."

Ratings for the show were down last season from the year before.
