Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 12 Renewal Status
Yes, it’s official Curb Your Enthusiasm has been picked up by HBO for another season, making it the 12th season in the series. “Larry outdoes himself season after season and always manages to come back when the audience needs him most,” said HBO Programming EVP Amy Gravitt in a statement. “We’re thrilled for him, Jeff Schaffer, and our phenomenal cast to continue making us laugh and cringe in equal measure.”
The official Twitter handle of HBO also shared the renewal update by quoting, “P.S. He isn’t apologizing for anything. #CurbYourEnthusiasm has been renewed for Season 12.” Take a look at the official post below with a quote from one and only Larry Dacvide stating, “Playing the role of Larry David has been the greatest honor of my life,” added David in a statement.
Further added, “In researching this multi-faceted, multi-talented man, I discovered that there’s more to him than I ever could have imagined: He speaks six languages, brines his own pickles, and spearheads a national movement to install a bidet in every home. I’ve also been told from numerous sources that he is the most generous of lovers. I am so excited to once again transform into this force of nature. I only pray that I can do him justice.”

We’re still brick-by-brick building all the houses. There is some really funny stuff.”

Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 11: What happened in the finale episode?
The finale episode, The Mormon Advantage, was released on December 26, 2021. The episode is directed by Jeff Schaffer and written by Larry David & Jeff Schaffer. It is estimated to be viewed by 0.450 million US viewers. In the episode, the viewers got to see that Irma, who lives with Larry, fights with Leon all the time. Larry is informed by Irma that she or Leon must occupy the home. After Jeff goes on his trip, Leon stays with Jeff and Susie, but Larry still needs Irma to overturn the fence rule.
Susie wants to host a celebration in honor of Alexander Vindman at Larry’s home in return. Larry converses with Micah Johnson, a Mormon who is the husband of Melinda, one of the councilwomen, at a council meeting. Larry wonders if Micah might be interested in having several wives. When a man hugs him too tightly and proceeds to wander around the event in his socks, Larry winds up stepping in dog excrement and destroying his shoes at a Vindman event at the Holocaust Museum of Los Angeles. On the occasion, Leon meets Larry’s wife, Mary Ferguson, and introduces them.
Larry also observes Micah with a different woman. After the ceremony, Larry removes a pair of shoes from the Holocaust display as it starts to rain. Mary expresses an interest in Vindman at Larry’s party. Melinda decides not to vote for the repeal after learning what Larry and Micah discussed. On the phone, Larry apologizes to Melinda and commits to giving to their church. Vindman overhears the talk and deduces that it is a bribe. He plans to alert the head councilman, Weinblatt, of this. Vindman also deduces that Larry stole the shoes from the display, which is right.
After being in recovery, Irma finds out that the shoes Larry stole were actually her grandfather’s, which prompts her to relapse into drinking. In order to steal the documents provided by Vindman, Larry travels to Weinblatt’s residence. When Larry leaves the house with the documents, he trips over some chairs and plunges into their pool. Due to Irma’s absence from the council meeting, the vote was deadlocked, preventing the repeal of the statute. While everything is going on, Mary steals Leon’s passport and goes on the trip with Vindman.
