After a six-year hiatus, Larry David's beloved HBO improv comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm returns for Season 9 on Sunday, Oct. 1. From what fans know, it's shaping up to be a pret-ty, pret-ty, pret-ty great series return. For starters, David's on-screen, exaggerated persona hasn't lost a bit of that sarcastic, no-BS attitude. And in addition to the return of fan-favorite original characters, newcomers like Lauren Graham, Elizabeth Banks, and Bryan Cranston also make appearances this season. So, which Curb episodes will Lauren Graham be in? That remains to be seen, but for good reason.
Back in February, it was announced that the Gilmore Girls actor would join Curb as a recurring character for several episodes. While details about Graham's role remained unknown for months, executive producer Jeff Schaffer revealed some insight in early September. "Larry’s always had a complicated relationship with NBC censors. Now he’s dating one," he explained to Entertainment Weekly. Multiple reports have claimed Graham will portray a serious love interest for David over a multiple-episode arc.
