Richard Lewis has pretty, pretty, pretty good news for Curb Your Enthusiasm fans as he tweeted that he will return for season 12. He had been playing the fictionalized version of himself since the HBO series’ debut season in 2010. He was last seen in one episode of last year’s outing due to health issues, like surgeries on his back and shoulders. It is unconfirmed how many episodes he will star in for the next season of the comedy series.
In the tweet (seen below), Richard Lewis shared a picture with Curb Your Enthusiasm star and creator Larry David. He wrote that he was a “lucky cat” to work again with his “oldest pal who just so happens to be a genius.” He joked to not “tell him I called him that or he’ll mock me to my grave.”
Curb Your Enthusiasm season 12 sees return of Richard Lewis
I’m back shooting Curb! I’m a lucky cat to be with my oldest pal who just so happens to be a genius. Don’t tell him I called him that or he’ll mock me to my grave. A 22 year ride so far! 🤡RL

When it comes to David’s show, it was almost the end with the last season. A death scene of his was shot but ultimately not used to continue its long run on HBO. While each season is made to be the possible last, shooting the leading star drowning did solidify the idea when the show ends, so will the life of the fictionalized version of the Seinfeld creator.
Richard Lewis has starred in 40 episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm as a fictionalized version of himself. The Leaving Las Vegas actor stars next to others who play exaggerated versions of themselves, like David, Jeff Garlin, J.B. Smoove, Ted Danson, Cheryl Hines, and Wanda Sykes.
Production has begun for season 12 of Curb Your Enthusiasm, as confirmed by Smoove, who posted on his Instagram that he was on set shooting. We got to see Garlin was back as he sat next to David. Besides the main cast, who have maintained tenure across the 22-year-old series, not much has been confirmed on what or who to expect.
