So THAT’S what Jerry Seinfeld was talking about when he said a ‘Seinfeld’ reunion was happening! In a huge surprise, he and Jason Alexander went back to the famous Tom’s Restaurant to argue about nothing during halftime of Super Bowl XLVIII on Feb. 2.
It’s been a decade-plus since Seinfeld was on the air, so we were giddy when Jerry Seinfeld revealed on Jan. 30 that a reunion was inevitable. And it happened much sooner than we expected, as he and George Costanza (aka Jason Alexander) reunited for a surprise appearance to promote Jerry’s web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
‘Seinfeld’ Reunites For The Super Bowl
It was just like the old days — Jerry and George sitting in their booth at Tom’s Restaurant and arguing about basically nothing: the amount of chips at a party, George’s horrible etiquette, and meaningless invites from the Wassermans. And just as the two were getting ready to head back to watch the Super Bowl halftime show, they were met by another Seinfeld alum — Newman!
It was obviously a shock to see Jerry and Jason together again. And while the boys have aged a little, they really haven’t lost an ounce of that chemistry they had on the show.
And in a nice homage to one of the most famous episodes, Jerry’s car wouldn’t start when they tried to head back to the party.
Jerry Seinfeld Teases ‘Seinfeld’ Reunion
To be fair, Jerry did warn us that this was coming. During an interview on WFAN’s Boomer & Carton Jerry said that we could expect to see a few of the castmembers back together “very soon.”
The reunion was all essentially an ad for the full version of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee starring Jerry and Jason (which you can see here). But honestly it doesn’t matter — we got to see a new “episode” of Seinfeld, and it was everything.
