LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - You don’t have to curb your enthusiasm much longer -- the seventh season of Larry David’s HBO comedy will premiere September 20.

The announcement was made during the “Curb Your Enthusiasm” TCA panel in which creator/star David revealed some details about the show’s “Seinfeld” cast reunion.

The “Curb” story line features the NBC sitcom’s cast members -- Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Richards -- playing themselves as they agree to a series revival. The “Seinfeld” cast will appear in five episodes that track the process of restarting the classic sitcom, picking up the characters’ lives 11 years later.

“For years, I’ve been asked about a ‘Seinfeld’ reunion,” said David, co-creator of the hit NBC comedy. “We’ll see the read-through, parts of rehearsals, the show being filmed. You won’t see the entire (mock ‘Seinfeld’ episode).”

The “Seinfeld” reunion idea will be introduced a couple of episodes in and will be the main arc this season, which might wrap with an hourlong finale.
