Will Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm be ending with season 12? Writer/producer Jon Hayman certainly thinks so.
After more than two decades on HBO, Curb Your Enthusiasm may finally be ending.
Production on Curb Your Enthusiasm season 12 recently wrapped, and sources told THR that this could be the last season of the long-running comedy series. In a since-deleted tweet, Curb Your Enthusiasm writer/producer Jon Hayman shared a photo from what he called the final episode and wrote, “Maybe you love the show. Maybe you hate the show. Maybe you don’t give a shit. In any event, shooting the last scene of the last episode of the final season.” HBO declined to comment.
Curb Your Enthusiasm hasn’t exactly stuck to a regular schedule throughout its history. HBO has more or less let Larry David decide when he wants to return, which has led to some large gaps between seasons, most notably six years between seasons 8 and 9. It’s also important to note that previous seasons have been thought to have been the last, but this time may be different as Larry David’s contract with HBO is up this year.
Curb Your Enthusiasm co-star Richard Lewis also tweeted about filming his last scene for the potentially final season. “There I was a few hours ago in my trailer on location to shoot my last scene of #Curb12,” Lewis wrote. “Hard to believe we started in 2000. The cast and crew all knew we were working for a genius. When that rarity happens, no one ever takes a moment for granted. We love you LD.“
When it was confirmed last year that Curb Your Enthusiasm would be returning for a twelfth season, Larry 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 season 12 doesn’t have a release date yet, but do you think the series really will be ending?
