What Did Larry David Say to Seinfield Finale Haters? 

Curb Your Enthusiasm cast sat together for the first time since the show was wrapped two weeks ago. At a recent PaleyFest event in Los Angeles, the Curb creator and star discussed his decision to draw parallels between the endings of the two hit comedy series he created.


Jeff Schaffer, a Curb executive producer, kicked things off by mentioning how satisfying it was to mirror the endings of both shows. He jokingly referred to a comment made by Jerry Seinfeld himself, calling it "a joke 26 years in the making." Schaffer concluded by highlighting the unique privilege of being able to create such a long-lasting comedic legacy.


"It was just incredible, by the way, getting to bring all that full-circle and then getting to do it one last time in the season finale. As Jerry [Seinfeld] said, it was a joke 26 years in the making. It's neat that you can stick around long enough to do that."

David then shared a message to his critics. "F--- you!" he quipped. "You didn't like the first one? F--- you!"

David co-created Seinfeld with the titular comic, but he left the series after its seventh season. However, he returned to write the 1998 series finale At the time, I think it did bother me, David said at PaleyFest, adding that he saw "probably a couple" negative reviews.
