Jerry Seinfeld has announced that he is in talks with Netflix to bring his ground breaking Nineties sitcom, Seinfeld, to the streaming service. The show, which ran from 1989 until 1998, has so far been unavailable for streaming.
As part of his second Reddit Ask Me Anything session this year, the comedian confirmed that “conversations were currently taking place” when asked if the series was making the move to Netflix. One fan replied, “The day Seinfeld is on Netflix is the day that I never see anyone ever again.”
There was no indication if the creators of Seinfeld had previously been in negotiations, but this is a promising sign for anyone who wanted finally watch the 180-episode “show about nothing”. The series is reported to have generated $3 billion in syndication fees for Seinfeld and co-creator Larry David since the show went off the air.
Aside from this question, Seinfeld also answered a number of other wide ranging questions about his webseries Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, his favourite moments in Seinfeld, what it was like to make Seinfeld, and where that notorious second button should sit ("it shouldn't pull the fabric, and it shouldn't show, you know, more than a certain amount of breastbone").
