Jerry Seinfeld Turned Down an Offer for a New, Live 'Seinfeld' Episode
Published Aug 12, 2016While some people spend their entire lives dreaming of what Seinfeld would be like if it were still on TV today, it's definitely never going to happen. After all, Jerry Seinfeld has just turned down an offer to make a new episode.
Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Seinfeld explained that he just turned down yet another offer for a new episode of his show, which went off the air in 1998.
When asked if he'd ever revisit the series, Seinfeld said, "No. But we did have an offer — I won't say who from — to do a new, live episode of Seinfeld on TV." He added that the reunion idea was a hard no on his end.
Further, he said that he doesn't ever watch the show when he stumbles upon reruns on TV. "I don't know why it makes me so uncomfortable," he said, adding, "Whenever I see a clip of it, I think, 'This is a very funny show.'"
There is a chance that Seinfeld will return to television with a recut version of his Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee series. The show, which currently airs on the streaming service Crackle, might be recut for more traditional broadcasting services.
"We're talking to television and cable and streaming [outlets], and so there are a variety of forms that this show might take," he said. "Nothing is set yet. It's just conversations now, but there's been a lot of interest."
