A mysterious meeting, teasing quotes, and a confirmed George Constanza sighting make the swirling news about a possible ‘Seinfeld’ reunion more than simply about nothing.
Indeed, Thursday morning while appearing on WFAN’s ‘Boomer & Carton’ show, Jerry Seinfeld confirmed some sort of ‘Seinfeld’ reunion is coming “very, very soon.”
Seinfeld explained that he, Jason Alexander, and ‘Seinfeld’ and ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ creator Larry David did indeed meet up to film…something. They convened at Tom’s Restaurant in New York, which fans of the show know better as Monk’s, the regular diner where the group met.
What’s more, Seinfeld denied that the shoot was either for a commercial or his web series, ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,' leaving very little options left as to what they were shooting.
He also added that other characters from the show appeared during filming, which was done at various other locations too, though not however [the character] Jerry’s apartment. So, it looks more and more like it’s actually a reunion, more than 15 years after the heralded NBC sitcom took a bow with their (dubious) two-part finale.
The “secret project” Seinfeld referred to is something in “short-ish form,” adding, “I think it’s one-and-done.” That’s all we are getting for now, just short of a direct, unequivocal declaration.
Unofficially, this would be the second ‘Seinfeld’ reunion. Even though it was under the clever guise of a ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ season-long story, the cast did indeed reunite, film scenes, and offer brand new authentic ‘Seinfeld’ material in Season 7 in 2009.
The image to the right first sparked recent rumors earlier this month, as Jerry and a red-coated Jason Alexander strolled by Tom's.
