The latest season of the hit sitcom Curb Your Enthusiasm sadly came to a close on Monday, December 26th. Fans of the hilarious Larry David show have already been wondering whether or not the series will return for season 12. Here's what we know so far.

Season 11 had many familiar faces - like Seth Rogen, Jon Hamm, Woody Harrelson, Tracey Ullman, Lucy Liu, and Dylan O'Brien. The 10-episode segment had various storylines play out, from the mayoral elections to COVID-19 issues, leaving fans (and us) cracking up.

But loyal viewers aren't the only ones hoping for more hilarious content from David. Jeff Garlin exclaimed that he "certainly would love to" film a new season. Garlin has been portraying Jeff Greene on the series since Curb first aired back in 2000. The comedian recently exited ABC's show The Goldbergs after he was involved in an investigation for inappropriate behavior. Garlin claimed that the show was too "politically correct," and he would much rather just work on Curb Your Enthusiasm. He explained he preferred to work with David because his true comedic talent can be revealed.

The sitcom has become one of the longest-running comedy shows when compared to others. However, that may have to do with the extended periods of time between several seasons. After airing the 8th season in 2011, the cast and crew went on a break that lasted 6 whole years! The whole time fans were anticipating the show's return. Hopefully, this time around, we won't have to wait so long for the comedy's return.

David is usually hesitant on commenting about the show's return, but Garlin took it upon himself to explain that it's possible David may not be up for the job: "We could maybe do one more [season], maybe. You know, Larry is in his 70s. Don't get me wrong, he's in good shape."

Curb Your Enthusiasm has done so well during its 20 years on air, because of the awkward yet funny interactions that occur in the series. The script is typically written by David and a few other writers. But the actors also tend to improvise, creating humorous material for viewers to enjoy. We guess we'll have to wait and see if they will continue.
