Netflix releases a trailer for the new season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Created by Jerry Seinfeld, the series debuted in 2012 and originally aired for nine seasons on Crackle. Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee moved to Netflix for season 10, which released on July 6, 2018.
The premise for Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is mostly explained in the title. Seinfeld, the former star of NBC’s iconic sitcom of the same name, converses with fellow comedians about life and their industry experiences. Each episode features a vintage car, and reportedly costs approximately $100,000 to produce. Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee season 10 consists of 12 episodes that take place in various United States cities, bookended by appearances from Zach Galifianakis and the late comedy icon Jerry Lewis. The latest season also includes popular comedians like John Mulaney, Hasan Minhaj, and Neal Brennan. Since 2015, the series has won the Producers Guild of America Award for Outstanding Digital Series three times.
Netflix released a full-length trailer for Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee season 11. Subtitled “New 2019: Freshly Brewed,” the clip begins with a lively Seinfeld monologue, in which he emphasizes the show’s cultural influence by ratting off several fictional variations on the premise. Seinfeld also wears a suit and tie while riding a hoverboard. After the opening comedic rant, the trailer focuses on the car theme with a montage featuring vintage rides. Seth Rogen is the first celebrity to appear, followed by appearances from Martin Short and Bridget Everett. The trailer takes an off-beat turn with the arrival of Ricky Gervais, who stares awkwardly into the camera before chomping down on guacamole toast. Midway through, Eddie Murphy joins the fun, and essentially steals the show with spontaneous bits that call back to his ‘80s stand-up routines. By the final minute, the trailer focuses more on coffee and food than cars, with Seinfeld doing his best to provoke reactions from his guests. Check out the Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee trailer below.
Prior to releasing the Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee trailer, Netflix unveiled the full celebrity line-up. Seinfeld’s guests include the aforementioned Murphy (Dolemite Is My Name), Rogen (Long Shot), Gervais (After Life), Short (The Willoughbys), and Everett (Camping), along with Matthew Broderick (Wonder Park), Jamie Foxx (Robin Hood), Sebastian Maniscalco (Green Book), Mario Joyner (Everybody Hates Chris), Melissa Villaseñor (Saturday Night Live), and comedian Barry Marder.
The new Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee trailer doesn’t actually include “season 11.” Perhaps Netflix is looking to capitalize on the fresh comedic vibes and big names attached, rather than dating itself by specifically promoting the 11th installment. As long as the conversations are timely and/or revelatory, and as long as Seinfeld can keep up with his fellow comics, then Netflix subscribers can expect plenty more seasons of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
