Larry David was virtually lifeless. Fairly fairly fairly fairly prettyyyyyyyyy lifeless.
That’s the stunning perception into the earlier season of the present offered by Curb Your Enthusiasm showrunner Jeff Schaffer. In a brand new interview, Schaffer revealed that there was an excellent likelihood that Season 11 might have been the collection’ final. And if that was the case … Larry would have died.
That’s one solution to finish a comedy present!
Schaffer instructed The Hollywood Reporter they “shot as if [Season 11] was going to be the final one ever” as a way to be ready for the true chance that David would determine he didn’t need to make extra episodes. (Curb has now been on the air for over 22 years, and produced 110 exhibits.) After a season constructed round Larry making an attempt to get out of constructing a fence round his pool after a burglar drowned in it, the top of the present — and fictional Larry’s complete life! — would have seen him falling right into a pool with no fence round it after which drowning as properly.
Right here’s extra, from Schaffer:
I do know I say this on a regular basis, however each season is the final season. And I needed to arrange as if it was the final one. So Larry saved falling into that pool with out the fence and banging his head [for the scene]. We even have a shot after he’d fallen in, of the nonetheless pool with simply the envelope floating within the center, and possibly including one bubble.
Whereas the present was absolutely prepared for a super-dark (but additionally hilariously becoming) finale if Larry had determined he was able to wrap issues up, he in the end determined, in keeping with Schaffer, “I’m not able to die.” And so fictional Larry was spared from his poetic destiny
HBO has already renewed Curb Your Enthusiasm for a twelfth season. Who is aware of how the present will finally finish, but it surely’s going to be powerful to high that drowning thought. That basically looks like the last word Curb means for Larry to go.
