Los Angeles:

Garry Shandling’s “The Larry Sanders Show” is returning to HBO after the comedian’s unexpected death on Thursday, a representative for the cable channel confirmed.

The series will also be available via HBO Go and HBO Now.

The Emmy-winning series from Brillstein-Grey Entertainment, Columbia Pictures Television and HBO had limited availability online when Shandling died, not streaming on HBO Go or HBO Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“The Larry Sanders Show” was briefly available on Sony-owned, ad-supported streaming platform Crackle but was recently taken down.

However, episodes are available for purchase through iTunes and Amazon Video.

Shandling co-created and starred in the series, set backstage at a fictional late-night talk show.

The darkly comic show, which starred Shandling as a morose talk show host surrounded by a constantly scheming and bickering staff, took full advantage of its behind-the-scenes Hollywood milieu, with stars regularly appearing as parody versions of themselves, years before Entourage traded in the trope.

The show was the first cable series to be nominated in major Emmy categories.
