At least one member of the Seinfeld cast is confused by the reunion buzz

What's the deal with Seinfeld? Only Seinfeld seems to know for sure

You might have heard the news about famous comedian Jerry Seinfeld teasing "something" that has to do with Seinfeld's ending. The question of whether he liked the comedy's ending was asked during a recent stand-up show in Boston, and the comedian, actor, writer, and producer simply responded: "Something is going to happen that has to do with that ending. It hasn’t happened yet... And just what you are thinking about, [Seinfeld co-creator Larry David] and I have also been thinking about".

His answer didn't confirm anything, but at the same time, you have to wonder if they're cooking a revival or reunion, especially when pretty much every company in the TV business is looking to dig up old sitcoms like Paramount+'s Frasier or the rumored reboot of The Office. A previous Seinfeld reunion of sorts took place when the cast came together for Larry David's HBO comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm. The comedian was asked again about a reunion by Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show in 2018, and he stated it wasn't entirely impossible.

Now, during an interview for The Guardian, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who played Seinfeld's ex-girlfriend Elaine Benes in the series, commented on her co-star's teases. Long story short: She's in the dark too. Here's the full quote: "Yeah, I just saw [that news] last night... And I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about".

The final moments of Seinfeld showed all four protagonists, Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer, in prison after being found guilty of criminal indifference. It was a one-year sentence, however, so it's not like the show had a closed ending. But of course, it all could just be another Super Bowl commercial starring legendary characters from the past. Another option is this "reunion" being part of the 12th and supposedly final season of David's HBO show Curb Your Enthusiasm.

For now, though: no details for you!
