Another season is a significant development for a show that doesn’t fit the mould.
Curb Your Enthusiasm fans have waited patiently since the end of Season 11 in December for any official announcement on a Season 12.
Fans can now get excited about the program thanks to a discussion on the show conducted last night that featured creator and star Larry David.
In spite of David’s lack of specifics, he did affirm that the show’s next season will air last night, at an Emmys panel for the show.
Richard Lewis and Jeff Schaffer, the show’s executive producer, moderated a discussion following the screening of an episode from Season 11.
The event was hosted by Rich Eisen and featured actors David, Jeff Garlin, Susie Essman and J.B. Smoove. Eisen made the announcement through Twitter after the panel:
So, I was honored to emcee an @TheEmmys panel for “Curb Your Enthusiasm” tonight here in LA with most of the cast and asked Larry David the ultimate question:
Will there be another season of Curb?
He said yes.

For Curb Your Enthusiasm fans, the announcement of a new season is more than most can imagine.
There are eleven seasons in twenty-two years since HBO’s comedy does not follow a conventional release schedule and simply goes into production when David has an idea.
After a six-year break between Seasons 8 and 9, fans of the show were forced to wait for another three years between Seasons 9 and 10 to see what happened.
Even if there is no release date for Season 12, the announcement of a Season 12 is enough to thrill enthusiasts!
A recurring theme in the show’s episodes is David’s dissatisfaction with the amount of social convention he believes others are sticking to.
Many of the show’s cringe-inducing moments are caused by these embarrassing scenarios.
Famous guest stars who get to play fictionalized versions of their public personas on David’s show are likewise well-known.
Only in Season 11 did Albert Brooks, Ted Danson, Jon Hamm, Woody Harrelson, Richard Lewis, Lucy Liu, Dylan O’Brien, and Seth Rogen all portray themselves and get into a disagreement with David over a trivial issue.
HBO has yet to make a formal statement about the following season, and Season 12 has no planned start date for production.
