Curb Your Enthusiasm season 12: preview

All pretty, pretty, pretty good things must come to an end. And now, after a quarter of a decade and more than 100 episodes, the old comedy warhorse Larry David is bringing the curtain down on the hilarious, irreverent Curb Your Enthusiasm with season 12. It will go out on HBO and the network's Max platform in the USA.

Originally made as a one-off special, David's creation perhaps even eclipses the mighty Seinfeld as the jewel in the comedian's crown. Playing an amplified version of his irascible self, he's made us squirm, gasp, blush and belly laugh in equal measure since the show's debut back in 1999.

Back with the usual excellent cast featuring Cheryl Hines, Jeff Garlin, Susie Essman and, J. B. Smoove, fictionalized versions of Richard Lewis and Ted Danson, and a revolving door of guest stars, you can expect Larry to get himself into another 10 episodes' worth of embarrassing situations and cringeworthy scrapes.

This time the end really does seem to be in sight for Curb – although optimists would cite the many previous occasions when David has ultimately incorrectly suggested the show would be ending.

Considering the size and superb quality of Max's offering, $9.99 is a very reasonable monthly fee and you can cancel any time. $15.99 a month removes the ads and lets you download content to watch offline, while the Ultimate plan for $19.99 a month throws in 4K UHD, Dolby Atmos, and streaming on up to four devices at once. Or commit to a whole year for big savings.

Watch Curb Your Enthusiasm from anywhere

Max is only available in the USA and will be blocked if you try to watch it when overseas. The same thing will happen whatever domestic streaming service you try to use abroad.

However, it's actually quite simple for subscribers to access their service while traveling outside the US, by using a reliable VPN (Virtual Private Network).

We rate ExpressVPN as the best VPN. It offers a 30-day guarantee for all your money back in the unlikely event you're not happy with the service.

How to use a VPN to stream Curb Your Enthusiasm

Using a VPN to access your streaming service overseas is incredibly easy:

1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.

2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. So for HBO Max, you'd choose a server in the United States.

3. Head over to Max on your browser or device and enjoy watching Curb Your Enthusiasm online.

Do I need a US credit card for HBO Max?

If you don't have a credit card issued in the US the best option is to use PayPal or subscribe on your iPhone/iPad or Android phone/tablet. 

How to sign up to Max without a US credit card:

1. Launch your chosen VPN and select US as your country 

2. Create a new Apple ID/ Google account remembering to have US as your country. (Apple users can use a UK phone number but should head to the Apple ID website to sign up, rather than using an app on their device). 

3. Use your new Apple ID/Google account to access the US Apple App Store or US Google Play Store and download the HBO Max app.

4. Subscribe to Max through the Max app, using PayPal (this can be a UK account) as your method of payment.

5. You should now be able to sign in to your Max account from any device.

Fun fact: you can use this method to subscribe to other US streaming services, including Hulu and Peacock TV, too.

Do remember that if you can't get this working, you can always get your money back from ExpressVPN within 30 days if you've changed your mind about using its VPN service.
