Curb Your Enthusiasm About a “Seinfeld” Reunion, It Happened 14 Years Ago on Larry David’s Show


No one I spoke to today has any idea about a “Seinfeld” reunion.

These are people who know Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David. If something’s happening, it’s a surprise.

“No one has mentioned it,” says a source.

Seinfeld brought this up at a comedy show in Boston over the weekend when asked about the much reviled actual of “Seinfeld.” All the characters went to jail for being bad people. The audience hated it.

A new ending would have to involve picking up where that left off and undoing it. But Jerry and the gang already had that chance There was a “Seinfeld” reunion back in 2009 on “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” All the main players were on including Jerry, Julia Louis Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, Michael Richards, and even Wayne Knight.

It was the 10th episode of season 7 of “Curb.” The cast got a second shot at a series finale. George was trying to get back together with his wife. Jerry donated sperm so Elaine could hae a child. George invented an iPhone app for finding public toilets.

So it’s unlikely that another reunion would occur on “Curb,” but you never know. Anything is possible.
