There's more Curb coming soon.
They might be axing other programming left and right, but HBO is bringing back beloved Larry David comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm for a 12th season. "Larry outdoes himself season after season and always manages to come back when the audience needs him most," HBO Programming EVP Amy Gravitt said in a statement. Curb Your Enthusiasm debuted back in 2000 and stars David as a fictionalized version of himself alongside other performers including Cheryl Hines, Jeff Garlin, Richard Lewis, Ted Danson, and more. The comedy aired mostly consecutively until 2011, and then resumed in 2017 and again in 2020.
"Playing the role of Larry David has been the greatest honor of my life," said David in a statement delivered in his trademark tongue-in-cheek style. "In researching this multi-faceted, multi-talented man, I discovered that there’s more to him than I ever could have imagined: He speaks six languages, brines his own pickles, and spearheads a national movement to install a bidet in every home. I’ve also been told from numerous sources that he is the most generous of lovers. I am so excited to once again transform into this force of nature. I only pray that I can do him justice."
Curb Your Enthusiasm Seasons 1-11 are streaming on HBO Max.
