After speculation that the series was coming to an end, Larry David has confirmed that Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 12 will indeed be the last.

The creator and star of the HBO series revealed that the long-running comedy series will conclude with its twelfth season and joked that ending the show will allow him to “finally shed” the “malignant character” of Larry David that he portrayed for years.

“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,” David said in a statement (via The Hollywood Reporter). “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.”

“It’s hard to say farewell to such a ground-breaking, brilliantly funny and iconic series like Curb Your Enthusiasm, which has left its mark across television and the comedy genre,” CEO and chairman of HBO and Max Content Casey Bloys said in his own statement. “Working alongside Larry David and [executive producer] Jeff Schaffer as well as all of the comedic masterminds that comprise our producers, cast, and crew has been a joy that I will always treasure.”

A new poster for the final season was also revealed, which you can see below:
