Within the annals of divisive TV endings, only a few can compete with the ultimate episode of Seinfeld and the diploma to which its followers felt profoundly let down. Written by co-creator Larry David, the finale of NBC’s hit sitcom drew a whopping 76 million viewers when it aired again in 1998, nevertheless it’s nonetheless proper up there with different controversial finales of exhibits like Misplaced and Recreation of Thrones — all of which viewers nonetheless have damaging emotions about to today. Seinfeld’s, particularly, got here off to many viewers as too meta, with an excessive amount of crammed into one hour, the tone being unsuitable, too few jokes, the jokes not touchdown … I might go on.

And now, right here comes Jerry Seinfeld hinting at a revival associated to that very ending of “present about nothing.”

Twenty-five years on from the disappointing conclusion of the sequence, which at this time is offered to stream in its entirety on Netflix, the star has all however confessed his curiosity in revisiting the finale whereas he was performing a comedy set only a few days in the past in Boston. Seinfeld, who’s now 69, teased that he and David are certainly cooking up one thing alongside these strains for followers.

Picture supply:

“I’ve a bit secret for you concerning the ending,” Seinfeld stated concerning the finale, in a clip of his remarks that was posted to Instagram. “However I can’t actually inform it, as a result of it’s a secret.”

He continues: “Right here’s what I’ll let you know. OK? However you may’t inform anyone. One thing goes to occur that has to do with that ending.” Cryptically, he provides that no matter that factor is “hasn’t occurred but,” however that “simply what you’re fascinated about, Larry and I’ve additionally been fascinated about it. So that you’ll see.”

Let the hypothesis start.

My guess, primarily based on completely nothing however a sense, is that the large thriller occasion will find yourself being one thing alongside the strains of a Tremendous Bowl industrial. Though, reality be informed, I’d in all probability favor these sorts of beloved TV exhibits to only depart effectively sufficient alone. Don’t neglect, followers of The Workplace, we additionally discovered only a few days in the past {that a} reboot of some form from showrunner Greg Daniels is reportedly within the dialogue section, one other of those new bites on the similar TV apple that are more likely to go horribly unsuitable.

And as for a redo of the Seinfeld finale, effectively, we truly sort of received that already — within the type of Season 7 of Curb Your Enthusiasm, one of many plot strains of which entails Larry successful again Cheryl and reuniting with the celebs of Seinfeld. Who is aware of, perhaps it simply comes all the way down to somebody needing some cash.
