One of the most beloved/hated characters on the hit show ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ has confirmed he’s returning!

Richard Lewis informed fans by tweeting about his imminent return to the world of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Lewis, who’s appeared off and on the series for more than two decades, struggled with numerous health issues that made his participation uncertain.

“I’m back shooting Curb! I’m a lucky cat to be with my oldest pal who just so happens to be a genius,” Lewis tweeted. “Don’t tell him I called him that or he’ll mock me to my grave. A 22 year ride so far!”

As Deadline noted, Lewis only appeared in one episode in season 11. The comedian spent time away from the show while recovering from multiple surgeries on his back and shoulders.
