Garry Shandling's 'The Larry Sanders Show' To Return To HBO

Garry Shandling fans will soon be able to revisit the late comedian on the small screen. "The Larry Sanders Show" is coming back to HBO, Access Hollywood has confirmed. 

On Friday, the premium network announced plans to air reruns of Shandling's landmark comedy series, and include it on streaming platforms HBO Go and HBO Now.

The news comes just one day after Shandling passed away unexpectedly at age 66. According to the Associated Press, his doctors believe the likely cause of death was a heart attack. 

While HBO has yet to confirm a launch date, the network did issue a statement regarding Shandling's legacy and the return of "Larry Sanders" to its lineup. 

"Garry ushered in the modern period of original programming at HBO with his brilliant masterpieceThe Larry Sanders Show," the statement read. "All of us at HBO have a special place in our hearts for him not only for his enormous talent but for his kindness and decency. We will miss him terribly."

"The Larry Sanders Show" told the behind-the-scenes story of a fictional late night talk show and its colorful host and production staff. It's considered an influential predecessor to similarly self-aware comedies like "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Louie," and "Arrested Development."

Shandling's most recent project was a January guest appearance on Jerry Seinfeld's Web series "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee."
