HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm and CBS’ Young Sheldon are both celebrating their farewell seasons, and the live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender series will be premiering next month on Netflix. Late Night with Seth Meyers is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and Family Guy is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a live table read.

“We are thrilled to present this star-studded lineup from award-winning shows to a much-anticipated debut, as well as special anniversaries and farewells to some fan-favorites,” said the Paley Center’s President & CEO Maureen J. Reidy. “We look forward to welcoming television fans back to the DOLBY THEATRE this April, and we extend our tremendous thanks to Citi and the William S. Paley Foundation for their generous and continued support of PaleyFest LA.”

“The Curb cast and I are looking forward to seeing you all at PaleyFest! Just a heads up, I may not sound like myself. Since shooting ended I’ve been passing the time by playing the Jew’s harp, which has damaged my teeth and given me a pronounced lisp. I have ordered special dentures from Estonia, but they may not arrive in time. Fingers crossed. In any event, see you there,” said Larry David.

“What better way to say goodbye to a show we love than with people who love it as much as we do at PaleyFest!,” said Young Sheldon Executive Producers Steven Molaro, Steve Holland and Chuck Lorre.

“We’re thrilled and honored to bring Avatar: The Last Airbender to PaleyFest this year, and we look forward to discussing bending, the Four Nations, and, of course, cabbages with all of you,” said Albert Kim, the showrunner, executive producer, and writer.

“While I’d been counting on a 24th-anniversary celebration at PaleyFest, this is the next best thing, and I’m honored to participate,” said Seth MacFarlane.

PaleyFest LA began in 1984 and showcased stars including Lucille Ball, Barbra Streisand, George Lucas, Ava DuVernay, Norman Lear, and the casts and creative teams behind shows such as The West Wing, Stranger Things, The Sopranos, The Simpsons, Mad Men, Mary Tyler Moore, Parks and Recreation, Will & Grace, The Walking Dead, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Outlander, and more.
