Watch the new 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' teaser trailer

By Liz Kelly

What is the deal with shows that won't go away?

When we're talking about the "Real Housewives" franchise, the deal is raw, my friends. But we're not. We're talking about Larry David and his quirky, acquired-taste HBO comedy "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and so we're cautiously optimistic.

Yes, the show we all thought was pretty, pretty finished when it last aired in 2009 -- when the "Seinfeld" principals (Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Michael Richards and Julia Louis-Dreyfus) reunited and finally ended both shows (or so we thought) in a rare chance at re-doing the original (lame) "Seinfeld" closer -- is coming back sometime this year.

More after the jump, including the new HBO teaser...

The newly-released HBO teaser doesn't tell us much aside from the fact that Larry will be all over New York like Godzilla on Tokyo:

At the end of season seven, Larry seemed to be on the cusp of a reunion with estranged wife Cheryl (Cheryl Hines). Will she follow Larry to New York? What about the show's other L.A.-based regulars: Agent Jeff Greene (Jeff Garlin), Richard Lewis, Ted Danson and Mary Steenbergen, Marty Funkhouser (Bob Einstein) and Leon (J.B. Smoove)?

Will Larry hang out in coffee shops, order big salads and come into contact with characters from the fictional "Seinfeld" universe? I can't say I'd mind seeing him get into it with Frank Costanza.

We do already know that another guy who is a master of making people uncomfortable, Ricky Gervais, is set to guest star in season eight. As is, reportedly, Michael J. Fox.
