It appears that “Seinfeld,” the cherished sitcom, may get a second ending more than 25 years after its series finale.
Jerry Seinfeld revealed to a Boston crowd that he “has a little secret” regarding the “Seinfeld” series finale when asked if he enjoyed the way the show ended during a stand-up performance on Saturday night.
“Something is going to happen that has to do with that ending. It hasn’t happened yet,” Seinfeld said to big cheers. “Just what you are thinking about, Larry [David] and I have also been thinking about. So, you’ll see.”
On “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in 2018, the comic hinted that a “Seinfeld” comeback was “possible,” although he did not go into any detail.
At the end of “Seinfeld,” Jerry (Seinfeld), Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), George (Jason Alexander), and Kramer (Michael Richards) are all detained and put in jail. One of the most viewed television broadcasts in history, more than 76 million people watched it live.
However, the series’ last episode attracted a lot of criticism, and Seinfeld later expressed sorrow about the way the show ended.
In 2009, Seinfeld and David staged a resurrection of the NBC comedy within the “Curb Your Enthusiasm” universe, giving “Seinfeld” a sort of reboot. Seinfeld, Louis-Dreyfus, Alexander, and Richards co-star in a multi-episode arc in Season 7 of the HBO comedy that brings the stars back together to film a special episode ten years after “Seinfeld” ended.
The impending 12th season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” which has been filmed but does not yet have a release date, may be connected to whatever Seinfeld is hinting at.
Seinfeld and Alexander once more played Jerry and George in a 2014 Super Bowl commercial that was filmed on the set of the venerable Tom’s Restaurant.
