Larry David’s Emmy and Golden Globe-winning comedy series “Curb Your Enthusiasm” will be back for an 11th season, HBO confirmed Tuesday.

“Believe me, I’m as upset about this as you are. One day I can only hope that HBO will come to their senses and grant me the cancellation I so richly deserve,” David quipped.

The show, which originally debuted on HBO in October 2000, stars the “Seinfeld” co-creator as an over-the-top version of himself in an unsparing but tongue-in-cheek depiction of his fictionalized life.

“This past season tapped into the zeitgeist in such an uncomfortably delightful way,” said Amy Gravitt, executive vice president, HBO Programming. “Larry is already busy writing, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store.”

The series’ 10-episode 10th season debuted Jan. 19 and brought back series veterans Susie Essman, Jeff Garlin, Cheryl Hines, Richard Lewis, J.B. Smoove and Ted Danson.

The series is shot without a script and cast members are given scene outlines and improvise lines as they go.
