With the distinct possibility of divorce from Cheryl on the horizon, Larry faces major changes in his life. Will he be able to cope?

CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM stars "Seinfeld" co-creator David as an over-the-top version of himself in an unsparing but tongue-in-cheek depiction of his life. The series also stars Jeff Garlin as David's manager Jeff and Susie Essman as Jeff's wife Susie.

The new season finds Larry continuing to face challenges both in Los Angeles and New York. Guest stars this season include series veterans Bob Einstein, Richard Lewis, Rosie O'Donnell, J.B. Smoove and Wanda Sykes, as well as Jonathan Ames, Bill Buckner, Rebecca Creskoff, Gary Cole, Michael J. Fox, Ana Gasteyer, Ricky Gervais, Michael Gross, Harry Hamlin, Larry Miller, Robert Smigel, Aida Turturro, Mookie Wilson and Jo Anne Worley.
