Running for more than 20 years, "Curb Your Enthusiasm" has become iconic for its swear-filled humour, improvised dialogue and absurdist take on modern life. Season 12 arrived over two years after the previous season concluded, but that’s not unusual for the LA-based satire, with gaps of up to six years between previous seasons.

The usual faces return this season, with Cheryl Hines as Larry’s ex-wife Cheryl, Jeff Garlin as his best friend and manager Jeff, Susie Essman as his wife Susie and J.B. Smoove as Larry’s roommate, Leon. Also back are Ted Danson, Vince Vaughn and Tracey Ullman and, of course, there's plenty of guest stars.

'Curb Your Enthusiasm' season 12: What you need to know

'Curb Your Enthusiasm' season 12 trailer

What can we expect from 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' season 12

The official synopsis reads: "Starring Larry David as an over-the-top version of himself, the iconic Emmy and Golden Globe-winning comedy series "Curb Your Enthusiasm" offers a tongue-in-cheek depiction of the writer/producer/comedian’s fictionalized life. The comedy series continues to prove how seemingly trivial details of one’s day-to-day life can precipitate a catastrophic chain of events. To keep the narrative spontaneous, the series is shot without a script and cast members are given scene outlines and improvise lines as they go."

Creator and star Larry David says: “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. 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.”
