Last Thursday, Jerry Seinfeld told New York radio hosts Boomer Esiason and Craig that a Seinfeld reunion was happening “very, very soon.” Who knew the comedy meant “Super Bowl Sunday” soon!
During the halftime show on Sunday night, Seinfeld, Jason Alexander and Wayne Knight reunited for a special, fictional version of Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”
The mini-episode featured Jerry and George arguing over Super Bowl party plans at Tom’s restaurant.
“Fox approached Larry and me about doing some kind of ‘Seinfeld’ reunion for the halftime broadcast because of the New York connection,” Seinfeld said in a statement provided to the New York Times. “So we thought throwing Jerry, George and Newman into a ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ was a fun way to do it. Larry and I wrote the script in one sitting, just like old times, and working with him, Jason and Wayne was a total blast, as it always was.”
Like so many other Seinfeld fans, we’re hoping this was just a tease of what’s to come.
