Curb your disappointment cause season 12 of HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm might be its last season! Without Larry David, who’s going to tell us what to find annoying??? The rumor comes from a now-deleted tweet by one of the show’s writers and producers, Jon Hayman, who shared a picture of himself with Larry and executive producer Jeff Schaffer with the caption, “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.” You’d think someone who wrote for Curb Your Enthusiasm would know deleting a tweet is the greatest social transgression of all.
So now you might be thinking, “Jon deleted his tweet, so maybe he misspoke.” But Curb co-star Richard Lewis damned us when he tweeted a picture of himself with a sentimental send-off saying, “There I was a few hours ago in my trailer on location to shoot my last scene of #Curb12. 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.” It’s giving camp counselor reciting, “don’t cry because it’s over, smile cause it happened,” while you and your bunk mates hug and cry on the last day of camp.

HBO hasn’t commented on the claims yet, but probably cause they’ve been through this with Larry enough times to know he’ll say he’s done with the show until he gets annoyed at someone or something then suddenly, he’s bursting with fresh ideas! Larry’s contract with HBO is expiring this year, so if he wants to stay, all he’s gotta do is prick his finger and sign. According to The Hollywood Reporter:
One caveat is that HBO has long had an open-door policy with Curb, and defers to the creator and star on whether or not David wants to return. As his longtime collaborator Schaffer has explained previously, every season is always the last, until David decides creatively that he has more ideas.
A source says David’s current pact with HBO is up this year, so if he opts to return to Curb — which he’s done in the past — it would require him to ink a new pact with HBO.
Any fan of the show is crossing their arms in disgust Larry David-style after hearing that the show might be coming to an end. So if Larry knows what’s good for him, the ending to Curb will be NOTHING like how he ended Seinfeld.
