Since its run on-air ended in 1998, the millions of fans of the beloved sitcom Seinfeld have been itching for some sort of reunion. In 2009 we got a brief reunion when the cast appeared together on an episode of Seinfeld co-creator Larry David’s own sitcom Curb Your Enthusiasm, but that’s all we’ve been able to feed off since.
Now, Jerry Seinfeld himself confirms that there will be a Seinfeld reunion….of sorts.
It was recently rumored that Jerry and Larry David were working together on some sort of secret project, though nothing was confirmed and no details were revealed. Then, a photo (see below) was recently taken by someone witnessing Jerry and his Seinfeld co-star Jason Alexander (George Costanza) walking towards Tom’s Restaurant, the famous restaurant that served as the exterior to the show’s famous Monk’s coffee shop hangout in New York, leading to a lot more speculation.
Jerry then appeared on New York talk-show “WFAN’s Boomer and Carton”, where the hosts questioned him about the viral photo. He denied that it was part of a Super Bowl ad scheme, or even an episode of his web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee; where he has other comedians join him for a day out on the town, conversing over coffee. Jason Alexander would make sense as a guest star, as Seinfeld’s Michael Richards has appeared on the show, but apparently that’s not the case. Instead, Jerry said it is indeed a “secret project”.
So far, we’ve learned that Jason Alexander will be reprising his role as George Costanza, as well as other Seinfeld characters. Larry David is also involved, most likely as a director, writer or producer for whatever it is. Also, we learned that other locations from the Seinfeld world will be involved, though not Jerry’s apartment (oddly…). Jerry then went on to say that the project will be a “one-and-done” deal and that we will be seeing it “very, very soon”.
The video interview can be seen below:
Are you guys excited for a much-anticipated Seinfeld reunion, even if it’s a short-term privilege? I know I am. I can basically recite each episode of the nine seasons, watched them each at least 20 times over.
