Larry David will finally bring Curb Your Enthusiasm for an end – and “let go of this Larry David persona” – after its 12th season airs next year on HBO.
The 10-episode final season will premiere on February 4th, with new episodes airing weekly until the series finale on April 7th. In a statement, David joked about ditching the “Larry David” persona and finally becoming “the person God intended me to be — the thoughtful, kind, considerate, caring human being that I was until I was derailed by portraying this evil character. ”.
He continued: “And so, 'Larry David,' I bid you farewell. His misanthropy will not be missed. And for those who want to contact me, they can contact me at Doctors Without Borders.”
The main cast for CurbThe 2019 final season will feature all the usual long-time players, plus some newer additions: Jeff Garlin, Susie Essman, Cheryl Hines, JB Smoove, Richard Lewis, Ted Danson, Vince Vaughn and Tracey Ullman.
Curb Your Enthusiasm premiered in 2000, spun off from David's 1999 HBO comedy special, Larry David: Control Your Enthusiasm. The show was widely acclaimed for its delightfully uncomfortable brand of comedy combined with a bare-bones budget, practically cinéma-vérité style. The show's first eight seasons aired at a steady pace, but after the eighth season ended in 2011, Curb went on a six-year hiatus, not returning for a ninth season until 2017. Over the course of its run, Curb has received an impressive 47 Emmy nominations, although it has only won twice so far.
As for what David plans to do post-Curbhis former collaborator Jerry Seinfeld recently teased something related to the infamous Seinfeld end of 25 years ago. Asked about the episode at a stand-up show, Seinfeld said he had “a little secret,” saying: “Something is going to happen that has to do with this ending. It hasn't happened yet. Exactly what you're thinking, Larry (David) and I are thinking too. Then you will see.
