Fans of the hit comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm have been left devastated after it was confirmed the show would be coming to an end.

It has been announced by Larry David that Curb Your Enthusiasm, which followed stories surrounding the fictionalized version of himself, will be ending after the next season.

The Seinfeld co-creator has played an ill-humored version of himself in the hit comedy series on HBO since 2000, and while it may be the longest-running comedy on the network, we now bid a fond farewell to it.

Curb Your Enthusiasm originally aired for eight seasons between 2000 and 2011, then took a six-year hiatus before starting again in 2017. The 12th and final season is due to air in February before the entire show draws to a close.

Speaking of the news, David said: "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 on Thursday, confirming the final season.

"And so 'Larry David,' I bid you farewell," he continued before adding: "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."

Casey Bloys, chairman and chief executive of HBO & Max Content, also spoke of the show's departure, stating: "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."

Taking to Twitter, better known now as X, fans expressed their sadness at the loss of the iconic show.

"Sad to hear Curb Your Enthusiasm is ending but man has it been a ride. Larry David has been my most relatable tv character since we both possess similar idiosyncrasies that shake up the monotony of seemingly meaningless everyday tasks. With that said..." one user wrote, including a GIF of David looking clearly unimpressed.

Another recalled a personal memory, writing: "one time i ate an edible and then got in n out burger and then went home and put on curb your enthusiasm and then the edible was way stronger than i thought and i started sobbing like tears pouring down my cheeks thinking about how much genius can be contained in one man."

A third also stated: "I remember never caring about this show for so long then finally actually sitting down to give it a shot and binged every season in like 2 weeks or so because I ended up loving it."

But who knows? Even though the 76-year-old actor will be calling it quits on Curb, he might be reprising another one of his notorious roles.

Back in October, David appeared alongside Jerry Seinfeld after teasing a potential return to their iconic show.

"Something is going to happen that has to do with that ending. Hasn’t happened yet," Seinfeld said at the event in Boston. "And just what you are thinking about, Larry and I have also been thinking about it. So you’ll see, we’ll see."

Of course, the crowd were excited, cheering, and clapping for the stars, but so far nothing else has been revealed.

Curb Your Enthusiasm will end after the final season, which is due to air on February 4.
