Curb Your Enthusiasm, Larry David’s iconic comedy series, is coming to an end.
Curb’s upcoming season, season 12, will be its final, the actor stated on Thursday.
Curb ran for eight seasons before going on hiatus for six years before returning for four more series.
Larry has now stated that season 12, which will premiere in February of next yeara, will contain the last ten episodes.
In a statement, he said: ‘As Curb comes to an end, I will now have the opportunity to finally shed this “Larry David” persona and become the person God intended me to be — the thoughtful, kind, caring, considerate human being I was until I got derailed by portraying this malignant character.
‘And so “Larry David,” I bid you farewell. Your misanthropy will not be missed.
‘And for those of you who would like to get in touch with me, you can reach me at Doctors Without Borders,’ he said as reported by Deadline.
The revelation has left fans distraught, prompting many to take to Twitter, nicknamed X, to express their sentiments.
User Dan Marcus acknowledged ’12 seasons is a phenomenal run but I am going to miss Larry David so much.’
DJ Martinez said it was ‘absolutely heartbreaking,’ while Charlie Wilson dramatically declared it the ‘top three worst days of my life.’
Andy Sappington agreed it was a ‘sad day,’ while plenty described it as ‘the end of an era.’
It was previously reported this year that season 12 would be the last, however executive producer Jeff Schaffer insisted ‘reports of our demise have been greatly exaggerated.’
Larry plays an exaggerated fictitious version of himself in the programme, which is HBO’s longest-running series and has received several honours, including two Emmys and a Golden Globe.
