For fans of classic ’90s sitcoms, this week was all about the return of “Frasier.” But Jerry Seinfeld briefly snagged the limelight for himself when he teased that he might be working with Larry David to revisit the “Seinfeld” finale.
During a Q&A segment of a stand-up show in Boston, the comedian revealed that a new project involving the series’ controversial ending might be in the works.
“Something is going to happen that has to do with that ending. It hasn’t happened yet,” Seinfeld said. “Just what you are thinking about, Larry (David) and I have also been thinking about. So, you’ll see.”
Many fans quickly speculated that the project would be an upcoming Super Bowl ad, as Seinfeld has used characters from his iconic show in multiple commercials in the past. His only other attempt at revisiting the show came in the form of a season-long meta arc on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” that saw the entire cast return for a fictional “Seinfeld” reunion.
Whatever format Seinfeld and David’s project eventually takes, it’s currently at a very early stage of development. So early, in fact, that one of the show’s main cast members was unaware of it. In a new interview with The Guardian, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who played Elaine Benes for all nine seasons of “Seinfeld,” revealed that she hasn’t heard anything from Seinfeld and David about a potential reunion.
“Yeah, I just saw last night,” Louis-Dreyfus said when asked about Seinfeld’s comments. “And I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about.”
Regardless of whether they choose to revisit “Seinfeld,” the show’s creative team has plenty of projects on their plates to keep them busy. Seinfeld is in post-production on his feature directorial debut “Unfrosted,” which tells the story of the invention of Pop-Tarts, and Larry David recently completed the twelfth and allegedly final season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” — though his collaborators have teased that the HBO comedy might not be finished.
