Nothing’s Famous for Final(e) Returning…?
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
This has been the response of comedic legend Jerry Seinfeld when confronted by relentless fan requests to do a traditional Seinfeld reunion (count me in that group of fans). While the non-reunion Seinfeld reunion on Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm a few years back was rather perfect in its own way, there’s still a void in our hearts because it played on HBO. Seinfeld deserves a brilliant primetime return just as it was during the sitcom’s glory days in the ’90s. Don’t forget that 76 million people tuned into the two-part series finale. Even if you cut that number in half, that sitcom audience would be unprecedented in the modern media landscape defined by countless shows, cable TV and a variety of on-demand streaming services.
But what’s Jerry’s answer today…?
What’s the deal with possibility?
Ladies and gentlemen, a Seinfeld reboot has just metaphorically left Ellen’s hometown of New Orleans (or NO, for short) and has now taken flight into the heavenly skies of possibility above.
Just like an o
val circle, the past always seems to find a way of coming back around.
