Eighth season of HBO comedy will air in 2011

HBO has ordered another season of Larry David's "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

The network renewed the series for its standard 10 episodes, which will debut next year.

"After much soul searching -- and by the way, it was nowhere to be found – I have decided to do another season of 'Curb,' " creator David said. "I look forward to the end of shooting, when I can once again resume the hunt for my elusive soul. I know it's here somewhere or perhaps in the rugged mountainous regions of Pakistan."

Adds HBO programming president Michael Lombardo: "Larry always loves to paint himself into a corner, and after the incredibly wonderful seventh season of 'Curb,' you have to ask, 'How does he ever top this?' But he always finds a way. We can't wait to see what he does in season eight."

With 70 episodes to date, "Curb" has become HBO's longest-running scripted series.
