Larry David has revealed that he is always reluctant to commit to a new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm because of the many hassles that come with producing the show.

His co-star Susie Essman recently joked that David constantly threatens to end Curb Your Enthusiasm after each season, but eventually revives the improvisational sitcom after a lengthy break.

David admitted that that he frequently considers bringing Curb Your Enthusiasm to a close, explaining that filming the HBO series is incredibly draining.

He told The Huffington Post: "I get intimidated by the prospect of trying to come up with ten good shows. And after you go through a season, you want to get away from it for a while. You can't quite see yourself doing it again because of how difficult it was. But then usually after I'm away for a while, it's like an ex-girlfriend... when you break up with them you start to miss them.

"You forget the reason you even broke up with them. And then you go back and go, 'Oh, that's why'. So that's what happens with the show. I start to miss it like the ex-girlfriend. I don't know why I ever wanted not to go back with it. And then I go back, and go, 'Oh, that was a mistake'."

David also discussed the difficulties of moving Curb Your Enthusiasm from LA to New York City for the show's eighth run.

"There were very big crowds watching us film in New York as opposed to LA, where you can't get one person to stop. In New York, they're very vocal and really tend to be enthusiastic," he said. "In L.A. they're pretty blasé about TV shows filming there, I guess because so many do. Nobody really cares, because they see so much of it."

David recently vowed to return to stand-up comedy at some point.

Curb Your Enthusiasm continues with new episode 'The Safe House' on Sunday on HBO.
