PASADENA, Calif., July 13 (UPI) -- The head of Home Box Office announced there likely will be another season of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" but refused to reveal the secret behind "The Sopranos."

Chris Albrecht, chief executive officer at HBO, was asked Wednesday if "The Sopranos" will end with the death of Tony Soprano, but refused to directly answer, the Chicago Tribune reported.

"Are you high?" Albrecht responded. "I might as well shoot myself in the head if I tell you that."

"Sopranos" will likely be returning in March for its last season.

Albrecht also revealed that "Curb Your Enthusiasm" is not 100 percent locked in for another season, but it is "pretty definitive" that the Larry David show is coming back for at least another year.

HBO also announced that Kelly Clarkson will headline an HBO concert on Feb. 3. "Rome" will return for its second and final season at the beginning of next year. And the network will produce "Life Support," a film that examines "the African-American community's HIV crisis through the eyes of a survivor who is a mother, an ex-crack addict and an AIDS activist."

The network also will also be screening the Spike Lee-directed documentary on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina for New Orleans residents on Aug. 16.
