This week, Larry David has been rather busy promoting the upcoming season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” He has intimidated reporters on the red carpet at the premiere and attacked Elmo on live television. Before saying goodbye, the 76-year-old comedian is prepared to create a few more enemies since he believes that this season of the popular comedy will indeed be its last.
On Sunday, February 4 at 7 p.m. PT/10 p.m. ET, Season 12 debuts on Max. Creating a Max account is the best option to stream the upcoming season, which will release weekly episodes every Sunday. Plans for a Max subscription start at $9.99 per month.
“Larry heads to Georgia to appear at the birthday party of a prominent businessman, while Leon takes the opportunity to visit his Auntie Rae,” reads the logline for the first episode, “Atlanta.”
The Season 12 teaser was unveiled last month, and it features Larry arguing with his regular opponents, Cheryl Hines, Richard Lewis, Ted Danson, and of course Susie Essman, in addition to a number of special guests, such as Dan Levy, Sean Hayes, Vince Vaughn, and Tracey Ullman, who plays City Councilwoman Irma Kostroski once more. Jeff Garlin and J.B. Smoove, two series mainstays, are also back.
While David has frequently declared that the show will end, the cable network is now officially teasing the upcoming episodes as David’s “final season” for the first time.
According to a statement released by David, “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.”
David will be traveling throughout Season 12 to talk about “Seinfeld,” “Curb,” and other topics at two live tour dates. The comedian will appear with an unidentified moderator in two locations: The Anthem in Washington, D.C. on March 29 and the MGM Music Hall at Fenway in Boston on April 1.
