HBO has announced a 12th season for its coveted Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm. The veteran comedy, which first aired as a special on October 17, 1999, has racked up 51 Emmy nominations to-date (with two wins). “Curb Your Enthusiasm” is currently nominated for four Emmys, including Outstanding Comedy Series.
“Playing the role of Larry David has been the greatest honor of my life,” Larry David said. “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.”
Similar to “Seinfeld”, David’s earlier hit, “Curb Your Enthusiasm” basically revolves around minutiae of everyday life. Each episode is established in an outline written by David, and the dialogue is largely improvised by the actors. The cast includes Jeff Garlin, Susie Essman, J.B. Smoove, Cheryl Hines, Richard Lewis, Vince Vaughn, and Ted Danson.
There’s no word yet on when “Curb Your Enthusiasm” will begin filming its 12th season, or when it will premiere. At 11 seasons (and 110 episodes), it is HBO’s longest-running series historically.
