Jerry Seinfeld Confirms A ‘Seinfeld’ Reunion With Jason Alexander

seinfeld Jerry Seinfeld Confirms A Seinfeld Reunion With Jason Alexander

Few television comedies are as beloved as Seinfeld. The series – which ran from 1989 to 1998 – is still widely considered one of the best written shows ever conceived, and fans are still clamoring for more, despite the 2009 pseudo-reunion that took place on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, which stars Seinfeld co-creator Larry David.

Recent word that David and Seinfeld were working on a “secret project” got the rumor mill swirling again about a potential extension of the Seinfeld brand, but few details were disclosed, leaving the mystery very much under wraps. However, new insight into exactly what the duo has been up to may give Seinfeld fans a reason to break out the Festivus pole once again.

Seinfeld recently appeared on WFAN‘s Boomer and Carton radio show in New York, and the hosts questioned him at great lengths about a photo (see below) of the comedian and Seinfeld co-star Jason Alexander in front of Tom’s Restaurant, the real-life Manhattan eatery that served as the exterior for the show’s Monk’s Café. Seinfeld confirmed that the project was not a Super Bowl commercial nor an episode of his web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee but also said it is a “secret project.”

The show’s hosts managed to convince Seinfeld to play a game of 20 questions over the project, and here’s what we’ve learned. The filmed “secret project” runs over one minute in length and features Alexander reprising his role of George Costanza, with other Seinfeld characters having a part of it as well. David is also involved but does not appear either onscreen or as voice talent (meaning that he’s not returning as the voice of New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner). Other locations are involved, but Jerry’s apartment from the show is not one of them, Seinfeld confirmed. Whatever the project is, he said that it’s probably a “one and done” affair and that fans should be seeing it “very, very soon.”

Seinfeld fans may be scratching their heads to figure out exactly what this project could be, but based on the details Seinfeld provided (as well as his mention that Alexander was not surprised to receive the call), there is one most likely scenario. On the DVD box set for the show’s final season, Seinfeld mentioned that he and Alexander discussed filming one final scene at the coffee shop, which would take place after the gang completed the prison sentence they were charged with in the series finale and has since mentioned that it could still happen. Fans may remember that Jerry and his friends were only sentenced to one year behind bars, but if Seinfeld and David have finally scripted this coda to their series, the fact that 16 years have passed since that episode aired could punctuate the comedy of how traumatic life in prison was.

This possibility would satisfy all of the criteria Seinfeld disclosed and could perhaps lend a bit more closure to a series finale that some feel was anti-climactic. This is all purely speculation at this point, but fans would probably jump at the chance to see Seinfeld and company back in character, even if it’s likely to be a one-time opportunity.

  1. I would love to see them back together again, but I hope it is at least for an hour-long episode or TV movie, if not a theatrical movie or new TV series. By the way, I loved the finale, as I thought it was genius how they put them on trial for their ten years of self-absorption without consequence and brought back so many memorable characters in the process.

  2. I love how Jason Alexander is still wearing 90s colors in the photo. He most likely did that on purpose bcuz of his visit to Tom’s that day. I’d do the same thing.

  3. its obvious that it will air at the superbowls halftime

  4. I work for sony distribution and I can confirm that it is more then one scene and that they will be included as bonuses on the upcoming bluray season releases. jerry, Jason, Julia and Michael along with Larry have all recorded commentaries as well as interview footage for a massive 3 hour documentary on the series

  5. I think it is an ending that will satisfy the people that didn’t enjoy the finale. I am super excited for this. I still watch Seinfeld reruns when I have a chance. Classic great show.

  6. Ohhh 1 minute. I wish it could be longer.

  7. i hope Newman and Soup Nazi will make an appearance.

  8. I think its a case of the first guess being right.
    A final scene…after the prison sentence.

    It would be nice way to relive the show…and still have it end.

  9. Well, since Friends doesn’t seem to re-unite anytime soon I hope Seinfeld will. The “Curb”-episode was really cool, but it would be awesome to have a movie or another season of the show.

  10. 1 minute? whats the point, give us something more to go on

  11. How strange would it be to be sightseeing in NYC and walking past the restaurant and suddenly seeing George and Jerry?

  12. Aaah Seinfeld… Classic

  13. Can this be updated with the Superbowl spot they shot for this “secret project”?
