No More Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee? Jerry Seinfeld Tells Podcast “We’ve Put That Volume on the Shelf”


It does seem as though Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” has been in the garage for good. After 11 seasons and 84 episodes, Seinfeld says on the “Smartless” podcast that he’s done.

Seinfeld tells hosts Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, and Sean Hayes when they ask about the show:
“I think I’m going to put that volume on the shelf. It was a lot of fun and I got to meet … a lot of those people who I had not met. We’re friends now. It’s amazing what two hours with somebody — you’re friends forever after that. It was really great.”

Originally “Comedians” ran on the Crackle network but eventually it moved to Netflix. There have been no new installments since 2019. The series won 5 Producers Guild of America awards and was nominated for 5 Emmy Awards. My personal favorites were with Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks, and with Jerry Lewis. I also really liked the episode with Sarah Jessica Parker. It was a clever, inventive, funny series that will no doubt run in syndication for eons.

The revelation comes toward the end of the podcast at 53:43. It’s a terrific podcast. Thanks to Yahoo News for tipping us off about it.
