Garry Shandling Made Deal to Bring 'The Larry Sanders Show' Back to HBO Shortly Before His Death
By Alex Ungerman
The Larry Sanders Show is coming back to HBO.
ET can confirm that shortly before his tragic death at age 66 on Thursday, Garry Shandling completed a deal to bring his beloved show exclusively to the network and its streaming sites, HBOGo and HBO NOW.
"Garry ushered in the modern period of original programming at HBO with his brilliant masterpiece, The Larry Sanders Show, HBO said in a statement. "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 Wrap first reported that the Sony Pictures Television-owned series -- which starred Shandling as the host of a fictional late-night talk show, and aired from 1992-'98 on HBO -- would be brought back to the premium cable channel. It was previously available on Sony-owned Crackle, but was removed earlier this year when the video streaming site lost the rights.
