Jerry Seinfeld hints that his show might be coming to Netflix

 Opening Night for Broadway's Beautiful - Arrivals


Seinfeld, still the most popular sitcom of all time, has also been one of the longest Netflix holdouts.

Much like The Beatles waiting forever to release their catalog on iTunes, co-creators Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David have been waiting for a deal involving all of their terms before letting us get our streaming fix.

But that might be changing: and changing faster than Kramer popping into Jerry’s apartment.

Seinfeld suggested as much during a recent Reddit AMA. The question: “Jerry, any word on Seinfeld coming to Netflix? Can you please convince Larry to let it happen? There are so many people who still have not experienced Seinfeld first hand and having it available through Netflix will surely be the easiest way.”

And the answer? From the man himself: “You are a very smart and progressive person. These conversations are presently taking place.”

True, that doesn’t necessarily mean anything concrete is happening.

But Seinfeld is notoriously tight-lipped about matters relating to his most prized property. And he usually doesn’t say anything about speculation until what’s done is already done.

For example, when he reunited with former Seinfeld co-star Jason Alexander to shoot a Super Bowl commercial early this year, Seinfeld didn’t allude to the reunion until just before the game–even though speculation about some reunion had been rampant.

Even more interesting is this potential nugget from Bloomberg. Seinfeld‘s current cable and broadcast syndication deals expire this fall, which means Netflix could be pushing to replace traditional broadcasters.
