It’s been 16 years since “Seinfeld” finished a nine season run on NBC, and there still hasn’t been an official reunion of the cast as their characters from the show. However, it appears that might change very, very soon.
Recently, Jerry Seinfeld appeared on the WFAN’s radio show “Boomer & Carton” to talk football, but of course, the conversation turned to a recent spotting of Seinfeld and Jason Alexander shooting something at Tom’s Restaurant, the infamous New York diner which serves as the exterior establishing shots when the gang gathered for some coffee.
The train of thought had people predicting that Seinfeld was either shooting a Super Bowl commercial (it was a little late for that) or something for his web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.” That apparently wasn’t what they were doing. But Seinfeld cryptically said, it’s “not not those things, either. It’s a secret project.” As vague as that sounds, Seinfeld also said, “I gave you more now than I’ve given anyone. I told you what it isn’t. And then I also told you that it isn’t not that, either.” What the hell are you talking about, Jerry?!
Not satisfied, “Boomer & Carton” producer Al Dukes was able to get Seinfeld to play a game of 20 questions, and here’s what was determined about the “Seinfeld” reunion project:
1. It’s been filmed at several locations, but not Seinfeld’s apartment
2. There were other “Seinfeld” characters involved.
3. “It’s a short-ish form,” longer than 60 seconds, but likely a one-shot deal.
4. Jason Alexander was playing George.
5. Larry David was involved but neither he nor his voice will be seen or heard.
6. We will see this project “very, very soon.”
And that’s all the details Seinfeld divulged. Since “Seinfeld” is an NBC show, is there a chance that that there’s some kind of Olympics related promotion using the characters? If it’s longer than 60 seconds, that may not be the case, but that’s really the best guess we have. Either way, the prospect of having the “Seinfeld” characters (though we don’t know which ones) together again in some capacity is great news, and we can’t wait to see what Seinfeld has cooked up.
