Is a Seinfeld reunion coming soon?
Seinfeld is widely regarded as the best comedy to ever air on Television…
And sorry Friends fans, it’s not even close.
Seinfeld is actually FUNNY — you know, something you kind of want in comedy.
Friends was just a warm blanket when you needed to put on some warm noise and feel good. But it wasn’t “funny”.
Say whatever you want below in the comments but I’m sticking to that.
If you want to challenge Seinfeld, you don’t do it with Friends.
You maybe do it with Arrested Development, that’s an argument I’ll listen to.
Anyway, back to our main story….
Even as the best comedy to ever air on TV, it also had one of the most hated finales of all time.
For over 25 years, Jerry Seinfeld has refused to acknowledge that and has held to the belief that the finale was well done.
It was good on paper, but very unsatisfying in reality.
That brings us to today.
Suddenly, while taking Q&A after a standup show recently, Seinfeld randomly broke the news that something new may be coming!
The show about nothing is cooking up something.

Would it be a one-time show?
A new season?
A new series?
From Fox News:
“Seinfeld” co-creator and actor Jerry Seinfeld hinted that a reunion for the popular sitcom may be in the works.
During a recent performance for his comedy show, Seinfeld, 69, teased that he and co-creator Larry David were working on a special project for fans.
“Well, I have a little secret for you about the ending. But I can’t really tell it, because it is a secret. Here’s what I’ll tell you. OK? But you can’t tell anybody,” Seinfeld began in an Instagram video shared by Boston Global Media CEO Linda Henry.
“Something is going to happen that has to do with that ending. Hasn’t happened yet. And just what you are thinking about, Larry and I have also been thinking about it. So you’ll see.”
The audience was heard cheering in the background as Seinfeld participated in a Q&A session after his stand-up show at the Wang Theatre in Boston, Saturday.
Meanwhile, this is hilarious:
people point out that we already had a reunion via curb & that was great but i think its funny that there's this feeling that the actual seinfeld finale is something that must be atoned for or corrected when i think its about as good a finale as you could do for a show like that https://t.co/Lt45Ff5Cnt pic.twitter.com/FvlbiRruhI

A reunion could be problematic as many beloved actors have died, including both of George’s parents.
The Costanzas were one of my favorite parts of that show.
It could survive without them, but they would be missed.
Many others have also died since the show went off the air in 1998.
According to Fox News, in 2021 Jerry Seinfeld said he would “fix some things” about the finale if he had a time machine:
Jerry Seinfeld is not one for regretful thinking or wishing he could change the past.
That said, he would like to go back and amend some “Seinfeld” episodes. Seinfeld spoke to reporters during a press conference Wednesday as he was promoting the Netflix debut of his comedy series on the streaming platform.
“There’s a number of them that I would love another crack at, but I don’t really believe philosophically in changing or even thinking about the past,” Seinfeld admitted but he wouldn’t divulge which episodes specifically.
“It’s just my philosophy of life,” he added. “It just happened the way it happened and we’re going to go from here and that’s the best way to live. I think regret is a philosophical position that I disagree with. That kind of assumes you could have changed the past but if you forced me or and you gave me a time machine, yeah, there’s a few where I would fix some things.”
Seinfeld was also firm in his stance about never watching the iconic sitcom despite its popularity. “I don’t watch the show,” he said. “How often have you pulled out your high school yearbook?”
The stand-up comedian, 67, spoke about how comedy can often be a hard medium to work in.
“It’s just hard to be funny,” Seinfeld told reporters. “Everybody kind of thinks they’re funny or wants to be funny, but even the people that are great at being funny aren’t funny a lot of the time because it’s just a tricky, subtle thing that evokes that response of laughter [from an audience].”
