Cue a funky '90s bass line, put on a Gore-Tex jacket, watch out for that wine display, and wish someone a "Top of the muffin to you," because Jerry Seinfeld is moseying on over to Netflix. According to Variety, Crackle web series Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee will move to the streaming service this year. New episodes of Seinfeld's Emmy-nominated web show will hit Netflix in late 2017, and the previous nine seasons will be added to the streaming service's library. In addition to the Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee acquisition, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Seinfeld's Netflix deal also includes two new stand-up specials, plus the development of scripted and unscripted original content. This Seinfeld and Netflix situation is as big as a salad from Monk's, eh?
OK, enough of the heavy-handed references to the show about nothing, let me cut to the chase already: Might this mean all of Seinfeld is finally heading to Netflix? Will Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer ever join the Netflix party? Ehhhh, probably not anytime soon. As Variety pointed out, Seinfeld is not part of the deal; the beloved '90s sitcom continues to stream on Hulu and on Hulu only. ...Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Can't wait to see Seinfeld drink coffee, ride in cars, and chat up celebs on Netflix.
