HBO's 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' to End After 12 Seasons

HBO has today announced that the upcoming twelfth season of its original comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm will be its last. The premium cable network also revealed the premiere date for the final season.

The 10-episode twelfth and final season will launch on Sunday, February 4 at 10/9c. The series finale will air on Sunday, April 7.

Starring Larry David as an over-the-top version of himself, the comedy offers a tongue-in-cheek depiction of the writer/producer/comedian's fictionalized life. The series continues to prove how seemingly trivial details of one's day-to-day life can precipitate a catastrophic chain of events. To keep the narrative spontaneous, the series is shot without a script and cast members are given scene outlines and improvise lines as they go.

The cast in the final season also includes Jeff Garlin, Susie Essman, Cheryl Hines, J.B. Smoove, Richard Lewis, Ted Danson, Vince Vaughn and Tracey Ullman.

David created the comedy. He executive produces with Jeff Garlin and Jeff Schaffer. Laura Streicher and Jennifer Corey serve as co-executive producers.

"As Curb comes to an end, I will now have the opportunity to finally shed this 'Larry David' persona and become the person God intended me to be - the thoughtful, kind, caring, considerate human being I was until I got derailed by portraying this malignant character," said David. "And so 'Larry David,' I bid you farewell. Your misanthropy will not be missed. And for those of you who would like to get in touch with me, you can reach me at Doctors Without Borders."

"It's hard to say farewell to such a ground-breaking, brilliantly funny and iconic series like Curb Your Enthusiasm, which has left its mark across television and the comedy genre," added Casey Bloys, Chairman and CEO, HBO & Max. "Working alongside Larry David and Jeff Schaffer as well as all of the comedic masterminds that comprise our producers, cast and crew has been a joy that I will always treasure."
