Jerry Seinfeld Hints That ‘Seinfeld’ Might Be Headed to Netflix
Not unlike one of Kramer’s spirited pops into Jerry’s apartment, the “Seinfeld” TV show could soon burst onto Netflix.
In his second Reddit AMA interview in six months, Jerry Seinfeld tipped as much, saying, “These conversations are presently taking place.”
Seinfeld’s comment was in response to a redditor asking, “Any word on Seinfeld coming to Netflix?” followed by a plea of ”please convince Larry [David] to let [‘Seinfeld’ on Netflix] happen.” The show’s star and co-creator gave the above answer and called the inquirer a “smart and progressive person.”
This sounds all well and good to us and we certainly hope it happens, but wouldn’t “Seinfeld” on Netflix feel a little more “modarn” than” progressive,” Jerry? And by that, we mean the news of “Seinfeld”landing on Netflix would fit perfectly inside a tweet from @seinfeld2000, the popular, glitchy-English Twitter account devoted to “imagening” what the show that first aired 25 years ago would be like today.
It’s not as if Seinfeld (the real comedian, not the character in the show) isn’t aware of @seinfeld2000’s work. In the same AMA Reddit interview, Seinfeld admitted his kids are “very excited” about the new "Seinfeld"-themed iPhone emoji, which launched this week and is the brainchild of @seinfeld2000’s creator. But Seinfeld added that his kids ”tried to get them, and they couldn’t.” He concluded, “There is some problem with the emojis.”
