Curb Your Enthusiasm is sticking around. 

HBO has decided to renew the show for a 12th season in what is pretty, pretty, pretty good news for fans of the Larry David comedy. 

The star will naturally return to play the exaggerated version of himself that has made audiences snigger and cringe since 2001. He will be joined by series regulars, Jeff Garlin, Susie Essman, J.B. Smoove, Cheryl Hines, Richard Lewis, Vince Vaughn, and Ted Danson. 

“Playing the role of Larry David has been the greatest honor of my life,” stated the tongue-in-cheek creator. “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 has been nominated for 51 Primetime Emmy Awards during its 11-season run, including 10 nominations for Outstanding Comedy Series and 6 for Outstanding Lead Actor. 

Season 12 is scheduled to start filming later this year.
