Jerry Seinfeld confirms 'Seinfeld' reunion project, says it's coming soon

In an interview on WFAN-TV’s “Boomer & Carton” show on Thursday, comedian Jerry Seinfeld confirmed that a “Seinfeld” reunion of sorts is coming soon.

What form the reunion will come in is still a mystery.

Seinfeld and Jason Alexander – who played George Costanza – were recently spotted together in New York City near Tom’s Restaurant, which served as the face of the sitcom’s fictional diner, Monk’s Cafe.

The sighting fueled speculation that the reunion was for a Super Bowl commercial or for an episode of Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” web series.

Seinfeld denied both theories, adding that they were “not not those things, either. It’s a secret project.”

The comedian also confirmed that the “one-and-done” project was filmed at several locations and involved multiple characters from the long running sitcom, which ran from 1989-98.

Co-creator Larry David was also involved in the project, which Seinfeld said fans will see “very, very soon.”

Personal Take

After several seasons of struggling to find its place on the NBC lineup, “Seinfeld” finally found its spot in the early 1990s and became one of our favorite sitcoms of all time.

When the series ended with a whimper instead of a bang in 1998, fans felt slighted. None of this took away from the show’s status as one of the most successful in TV history.

After years of hoping for a “Seinfeld” reunion, it appears the time is near.

It’s probably not the reunion special or resuscitated series some were hoping for, but when we’re talking about shows about nothing, anything is better than its alternative.

Odds are the “one-and-done” project is a Super Bowl commercial, which are often more entertaining than the game itself.

Giddy up!
