Behind the scenes, executive producer and director Jeff Schaffer will be joined by fellow directors Larry Charles, Robert B. Weide, Jessie Nelson and Bryan Gordon.

This season on Curb Your Enthusiasm, Larry David will be taking one of his many grievances to court... and he's inviting another TV star to pass judgment on him. But the show has never had a lineup quite as loaded as the one lined up for Season Nine.

"I'm not a misser", he clarified. "They told me not to say anything", he admitted.

As for how Curb landed Judge Judy herself, David said it was fairly. "I don't really miss things or people that much". I think there's a ton, a ton of stories this year.

Talking at TCA about the new season, one TV critic told him that now he's got competition when it comes to saying offensive and inappropriate things in our newly elected President Donald Trump, and wondered if he saw any similarities.


When asked why he made a decision to come back, David added, "In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, 'I left, I did nothing, I returned'". "So I don't see the competition", Garlin said.

There's no word yet on when Larry David's Finding Your Roots episode about Bernie Sanders will air, but his series Curb Your Enthusiasm is returning for its ninth season after six years off the air on October 1, and David confirmed it will have guest stars including Bryan Cranston, Jimmy Kimmel, and Judge Judy. "It really thematically follows Pirates of the Caribbean", he joked.

David also will be seen on the upcoming season of PBS' genealogy series "Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates Jr". David was reluctant to discuss that spoiler at first, but then said of the revelation: "I was very happy about that", he said.

"I guess it might have been Fiddler on the Roof" if he had said no", David says. The reason he picked her and not another TV judge, David said, is he knew Sheindlin because she's part of his ex-wife's family.
