Everyone’s favorite curmudgeon is finally coming back to the small screen…and we’re having a pretty, pretty hard time controlling our excitement right now.

A teaser for the upcoming ninth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm dropped today, along with an announcement that the show’s premiere date is set for October 1st on HBO. So all of you small talkers, stop-and-chatters, and non-coaster users out there, take cover. LD is not going to be holding back.

We don’t know a whole lot about the new season, but the few tidbits we do have are solid gold. Like the fact that Lauren Graham (aka our TV mom forever, Lorelai Gilmore), is going to be making a guest appearance — and it’s not going to be the Stars Hollow stuff we’re used to.

We cannot WAIT to see that all go down.

Expect familiar faces to return, including Jeff Garlin, Cheryl Hines, JB Smoove, and Susie Essman (who, we hope, has just grown morefurious with time).

Oh, and 2017 Larry David hasn’t changed. At all.

We cannot wait for October when the delightful cringefest that is Curb Your Enthusiasm returns.
