The award-winning comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm, created by and starring Larry David, is coming to an end after 24 years.

The 12th season of the show will be its last, said Warner Brothers-Discovery, which owns the HBO network.

The comedy, which premiered in 2000 and stars David in a fictionalised version of his own life, is HBO’s longest-running scripted comedy series.

Comedians including Jeff Garlin and Susie Essman have featured on the show.

They will be returning for the final season to reprise their roles.

The season will be comprised of 10 episodes and will premiere on 4 February, streaming on Max, with new episodes airing on Sundays at 22:00 EST until the series finale on 7 April.

The first episode of the show aired to critical acclaim in 2000, garnering 51 Emmy nominations and two wins, along with five Golden Globe nominations and one win.

David is also well-known for having created the show Seinfeld alongside comedian Jerry Seinfeld. David was head writer and executive producer on the sitcom for its first seven seasons.

“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,” said David.

The show previously took a six-year hiatus between its eighth and ninth seasons before coming back. But this time it seems it really is the end of series.

“‘Larry David,’ I bid you farewell,” said David.

“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.”

HBO and Max content chairman Casey Bloys said it was “hard to say farewell to such a ground-breaking, brilliantly funny and iconic series”.

Paying tribute to David, executive producer Jeff Schaffer and the rest the team, he added he would “always treasure” the “comedic masterminds” that created the show.

David has remained in the limelight in the US since Curb Your Enthusiasm was last broadcast, parodying Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders on Saturday Night Live.
