It's pretty incredible to think that\u00a0Curb Your Enthusiasm\u00a0has been around since 2000. The scent of the\u00a0Seinfeld finale was still fresh in our slightly underwhelmed nostrils when Larry David, that era-defining show's co-creator, embarked on his second masterpiece. In its off-and-on progression,\u00a0Curb\u00a0has already lasted many years more than\u00a0Seinfeld, and with the announcement that Season 10 is a go, it'll outstrip its predecessor in terms of number of seasons as well.\r\n\r\nThis is no rumour: we've got official confirmation that\u00a0Curb\u00a0Mk 10 has begun filming. It'll presumably hit our screens sometime in 2019, having forced us all to wait over a year since Season 9: though that's nothing new by the standards of this show, which left six years between Seasons 8 and 9, and spaced out Seasons 5-8 with two years between each. There's something inspiring in the sporadic nature of\u00a0Curb's scheduling: if you work hard enough at crafting a groundbreaking comedic institution, you too can do whatever the hell you like on your next project and not bother about normal schedules.\r\n\r\nNot a lot of sitcoms make it into double figures, and even fewer stay at their peak for that long. It'd hardly be surprising if the fire has dimmed a little after all these years. But the continuation of\u00a0Curb Your Enthusiasm\u00a0is nevertheless good news, both because it's that all-too-rare case of an artist getting rewards they actually deserve, and because television can always do with a nice dose of gleeful sourness and misanthropy in the mix, to remind us all that it's not just us who can't stand everyone we meet.
