HBO Curb Your Enthusiasm: Larry David Sticks To His Words, Finally Calls It Quits After 24 Years
After much speculation, Larry David has confirmed that the upcoming 12th season of Curb Your Enthusiasm will be the show’s last. The HBO comedy, which premiered in 2000, has been on and off the air for 24 years, with a six-year hiatus between 2011 and 2017. David announced the show’s end in December, saying in a statement that he “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.”
“I’m Not Lying“- Larry David Insists On Ending Curb Your Enthusiasm
When asked why now was the time to come to a close, David had a simple answer: “Because I said so.” He insisted that it is really the end this time, saying, “I’m not lying. People think I’m lying — I’m not a liar.”
David went on to say that deciding how to end the show was not a long-term idea but something that “came about early on this season.” He also said that he doesn’t know what he’ll do next, but that he’ll “go into my office, I’ll patchke around.”
Despite Larry David’s Claims, His Cast Members Are A Little Skeptical
While David is adamant about the show’s end, his cast members are a little more mixed on whether they believe the show is truly done. Susie Essman and Cheryl Hines both admitted that they didn’t initially believe David when he said this season would be the last, but they now trust that the show is ending.
However, J.B. Smoove remains skeptical. He said, “I don’t believe that man.” Smoove went on to say that he thinks David will eventually get bored and decide to come back to the show. “He’s going to sit there and get bored at the house, say ‘I’ve got to do something,'” Smoove said. “He did take off six years one time, he did a play, did a movie, but it’s therapeutic — how do you take a therapeutic show away from people?”
Will There Be Any Spinoffs?
Despite the show’s end, Essman, Hines and Smoove expressed interest in pursuing Curb spinoffs. Essman joked, “I would love to pursue that. Let’s discuss it with Larry!”
Curb Your Enthusiasm season 12 premiers Feb. 4 on HBO.
