'Curb Your Enthusiasm' will experience a New York state of mind when the show returns for its highly anticipated eighth season.
In an interview with the NY Post, actress Susie Essman, who plays Jeff's wife Susie, says that most of the upcoming season will be filmed in New York.
"For seven seasons, I've been schlepping out there. Now I get to sleep in my own bed. Let them stay in hotels," she quipped.
So far, there have been no spoilers about why the characters on 'Curb' will be in New York City, but that's typical. Larry rarely reveals the season long arc of stories beforehand, preferring to keep the world waiting.
He doesn't even let the actors know ahead of time. "I have not seen any outlines. The reason Larry does that is that he doesn't want anybody lying in bed at night coming up with what they think are funny lines," she said.
Filming in Manhattan could be a good catalyst for David and company. The characters are all originally New York types, much like the 'Seinfeld' folks were all city-dwellers. So while we won't be seeing Larry and Jeff playing as much golf as season's past, we will probably see them eating pastrami sandwiches at the Carnegie Deli.
A season of New York-centric episodes sounds inspired. The last time Larry was thinking about New York was the year he was going to star in 'The Producers.' That was a hilarious set of shows, culminating with the joke of the season -- Larry was a hit, much to Mel Brooks' disappointment.
