7. Curb Your Enthusiasm
Yesterday, the Curb Your Enthusiasm season 11 trailer was released. This hilarious, long running comedy has made the decision to set season 11 in a post pandemic world. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter Jeff Schaffer, a producer, writer, and director on the show, said, "the real factor was when we would be premiering. We figured we would be coming out in the fall of 2021 and we didn't want what we were writing in March of 2020 to be so timely that it would feel dated more than a year later." We can't wait to see Larry David's nitpicking character back in his on screen hilarity.
8. Jack Ryan
Jack Ryan, starring The Office alum John Krasinski, has been renewed for a fourth season. Ant Man's Michael Peña will be joining the season four cast of this spy drama. We can't wait to find out when this next season will be released on Amazon Prime.
