Curb Your Enthusiasm renewed for 12th series, confirms HBO

Larry David said he was looking forward to reprising his role as himself


Veteran Jewish comedian Larry David has said he's thrilled to be reprising his role as himself after his hit comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm was renewed for another series.

The spry 75-year-old is set to write and star in the 12th season of the critically acclaimed TV comedy, which has been running since 2000.

David, who devised the show after the success of the global smash hit Seinfeld, has been the show's main writer and director as well as starring in every episode.

In a statement, David said: “Playing the role of Larry David has been the greatest honor of my life.”

“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 has often disappeared from screens for multiple years at a time, with the longest break occurring between 2011 and 2017. However, seasons have been released more regularly in recent years, with new shows debuting in both 2020 and 2021.

The show features David and a small cast of comics as well as a wide range of celebrity cameos including Jerry Seinfeld, Lin Manuel Miranda and Vince Vaughn.

In an interview earlier this month, Curb producer and showrunner Jeff Schaeffer told the Hollywood Reporter that the pair write "every season as if it's our last."
