Don’t expect a ‘Seinfeld’ reunion episode any time soon. Jerry Seinfeld revealed in a recent interview that someone had made an offer to do a live reunion episode, but he gave the idea a hard pass. C’mon, Jerry!
Jerry sat down for an interview and was asked about the possibility of a reunion. “We did have an offer — I won’t say who from — to do a new, live episode of Seinfeld on TV,” Jerry told The Hollywood Reporter. When the outlet wanted to know if Jerry had considered it, the actor laughed and said, “No!”
Well, it looks like Jerry is set on keeping another Seinfeld reunion dead in the ground. Yada, yada, yada, Jerry. Just give the people what they want! But in a world of remakes and reboots and revivals, there are some TV shows that are just too sacred to touch.
The fabulous foursome of Seinfeld most recently staged a reunion on season 7 of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Jerry, Julia Louis Dreyfus (Elaine), Jason Alexander (George) and Michael Richards (Kramer) all reunited for an episode, which focused on planning a Seinfeld reunion show. In 2004, Oprah Winfrey got the cast together for the first time since the show ended.
The cast has stayed close over the years, with the 4 main cast members all appearing on Jerry’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Now we just need to get Jerry, Jason and Michael on Julia’s show Veep!
Seinfeld, which was created by Larry David and Jerry, ran from 1989 to 1998. The show won 10 Emmys over the course of its run and has been declared by many as the best TV series of all time. Hopefully Jerry will change his mind about live reunion episode soon!
