Decider – “So all these sitcoms are having a resurgence,” DeGeneres began. “So Roseanne is doing it, Murphy Brown – is that really true? Murphy Brown’s doing it?” “I think I know where you’re going with this, but why don’t you finish it,” Seinfeld jested. “Do you think, Jerry, there would be a possibility that Seinfeld would come back?” DeGeneres asked. “It’s possible,” he responded, causing the audience to erupt into wild applause and cheers.
Jerry Seinfeld you old wily bastard. Playing with my and everyone else’s heartstrings. He knows what he’s doing. He knows how to play the game. Still, this is just evil.
The worst part about it is, if in a limited fashion, I don’t think bringing back “Seinfeld” would be a bad thing. It’s well known that the show stopped because Jerry Seinfeld himself sort of just ran out of shit to write, he’s said it himself. Ratings were great, the show was popular, but he was just sort of done.
That said, I’ve long contended that one season – just one little season of television – addressing modern technology and the information age’s influence on those characters’ lives would be HILARIOUS. Imagine George’s DMs getting out? Imagine Jerry getting dumped over a “new phone who’s this?” when he legit had to get a new phone? There is NO END in sight.
RUN WITH IT JERRY. RUN WITH IT.
