“Curb Your Enthusiasm”—created by Palisadian Larry David—has been renewed by HBO for its 12th season.
The comedy television series stars David, who plays a fictionalized version of himself. It follows his journey as a semi-retired TV writer and producer in Los Angeles, with one season set in New York City.
“Playing the role of Larry David has been the greatest honor of my life,” David shared in a tongue-in-cheek statement posted by the show and network on social media. “In researching this multi-faceted, multi-talented man, I discovered that there’s more to him that 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.”
The show also stars Cheryl Hines as his wife/ex-wife, Jeff Garlin as his manager and best friend, Susie Essman as Jeff’s wife, and J. B. Smoove as Leon Black.
During the series, the fictionalized version of David lives a married, child-free life in LA with his wife. His main confidant on the show is Garlin, and he is frequently at odds with Garlin’s wife, played by Essman. Smoove plays David’s friend and later housemate.
Filming is often set in Westside communities across LA, including the Palisades, as well as the cities of Beverly Hills, Culver City and Santa Monica.
Over the course of its run, “Curb Your Enthusiasm” has featured many notable guest appearances by Palisadians, including Mary Steenburgen and Martin Short, who played fictionalized versions of themselves. Fellow Palisadian Ted Danson has appeared in dozens of episodes since the start of the show.
The 11th season ran from October 24 to December 26 in 2021 and picked up four Emmy nominations, including best comedy series and best guest actor in a comedy series for Palisadian Bill Hader.
“I am so excited to once again transform into this force of nature,” David concluded in the statement. “I only pray that I can do him justice.”
The release date for the 12th season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” was not available as the Palisadian-Post went to print.
