Curb Your Enthusiasm will seemingly conclude with the next season after a producer on the series said so in a now-deleted Tweet.

The HBO show stars Larry David as a fictionalised version of himself living in Los Angeles after the success of hit show, Seinfield, which he co-created.

It has emerged as one of the most popular and critically acclaimed television comedies in history. Curb has been nominated for no less than 47 Primetime Emmy Awards and has been nominated for Best Comedy on nine occasions.

A 12th season was confirmed in 2022 to air in 2023, but that may be all we get.

Jon Hayman, a producer on Curb, Tweeted this week:

“Maybe you love the show. Maybe you hate the show. Maybe you don’t give a s—t. In any event, shooting the last scene of the last episode of the final season."

The post has since been taken down, so there is no definitive confirmation that the series is ending, but it does suggest David might be done after season 12.

How Larry David nearly died in Curb Your Enthusiasm

Curb Your Enthusiasm executive producer Jeff Schaffer previously revealed that the character of Larry David nearly met his end in the 11th season of the show, as a death scene - of sorts - was filmed.

The narrative of season 11 is kicked off with a botched burglary at Larry's house as the perpetrator falls to his death in the swimming pool, which is supposed to be fenced off.

Schaffer says the plan was always to end the series with Larry falling into the pool in a similar manner, though no death would actually have been confirmed as Curb Your Enthusiasm is usually renewed after production on a series has finished.

"I am very proud of this season," Schaffer told The Hollywood Reporter.

"Some­times we don’t know where we are going, but this season when we started with Larry finding the dead guy in the pool, right away I knew that we were going to end it with Larry falling into a pool because there was no fence.

"Sometimes it’s obvious. With the season before, we knew that spite store was going to meet its demise, somehow. But this one, it just felt right. I know I say this all the time, but every season is the last season.

"And I wanted to prepare as if it was the last one. So Larry kept falling into that pool without the fence and banging his head . We actually have a shot after he’d fallen in, of the still pool with just the envelope floating in the middle, and maybe adding one bubble.

"We shot as if it was going to be the last one ever. I had to at least prepare for it.

"This one lent itself too perfectly. We just got high and wide on the pool, with one light shining on it and the envelope floating in the middle. And we said, 'OK, if this is how we go, this is how we go!'"
