"Curb Your Enthusiasm" is still going strong! Larry David has revealed that the improvisational comedy series will return for a 12th season.
David broke the news at an Emmys event at the DGA presented by HBO Max. The event included a screening of Season 11 episode “The Watermelon” as well as a live panel discussion hosted by Rich Eisen and featuring David, executive producer Jeff Schaffer, Jeff Garlin, Susie Essman, J.B. Smoove, Cheryl Hines, and Richard Lewis.
So, I was honored to emcee an @TheEmmys panel for \u201cCurb Your Enthusiasm\u201d tonight here in LA with most of the cast and asked Larry David the ultimate question: \n\nWill there be another season of Curb?\n\nHe said yes.— Rich Eisen (@Rich Eisen) 1649649576
A “Curb’s” return is never a sure thing. With 11 seasons spread out over 21 years, the series operates only when David feels inspired to write more of it. The show took a significant break between 2011 and 2017.
The 11th season of the HBO comedy finished airing in December and followed Larry after a burglar drowns in his pool, which is not enclosed by a 5-foot fence, as required by a local ordinance. Facing blackmail, Larry hires the dead burglar’s niece, Maria Sofia, for a new show he’s developing.
As a result, he was forced to hire Maria Sofia, a somewhat untalented actress and niece of the dead burglar, for his new show, "Young Larry." David starts dating councilwoman Irma Kostroski to help while Leon searches for another Mary Ferguson to take to Asia with him.
Season 11 featured guest stars such as Tracey Ullman, Woody Harrelson, Julie Bowen, Jon Hamm, Bill Hader, Lucy Liu, Seth Rogen, Elon Gold, Josh Gad, and Albert Brooks.
