Jerry Seinfeld on Reddit ‘AMA’: Seinfeld Reunion Would be ‘Lame’

SeinfeldSeinfeld fanatics are probably screaming a Kramer-esque “Jerry!” today after Jerry Seinfeld squashed their dreams of a reunion via Reddit.

Taking part in his second “Ask Me Anything” session today, Seinfeld responded to a fan asking about a sequel.

I think you’re wrong. I think it would be lame, and I think it would be an embarrassment to the nice place that the show occupies. I’m absolutely happy keeping it the way it is. You can’t keep asking for more of certain things, you know? one of the keys to life is having a sense of proportion, knowing how long to sit at a restaurant after you’ve eaten, or how long you should go on vacation – if you go to Hawaii for a month on vacation, I guarantee you that by the end you’ll hate it. So it’s the same with a TV show, you want to do a certain amount of it, so that when people look back on it and they love it. I could have easily done the show for one or two or three more years, but it would have changed the way people look back at it. I think I made the right decision. Because people like the show now even more than they did in the 1990s, because it didn’t get worn out.

Earlier this year, we spoke to the creator of the @SeinfeldToday twitter account, Josh Gondelman, about how a Seinfeld reunion would rate in the social TV era.

What Will Happen When Seinfeld Meets Social?

SeinfeldThe entertainment and social media industry are buzzing about a potential Seinfeld reunion.

Jerry Seinfeld recently told a radio host that the cast has gotten together¬† to film a “secret project” featuring Jason Alexander playing George Costanza and Larry David serving behind the scenes.

Whatever the project is, scenes were filmed at the famous coffee shop restaurant that served as the foursome’s favorite hangout, and Seinfeld hinted scenes were shot elsewhere as well, with audiences being able to see the project “very soon.”

For social TV, a short or long form Seinfeld reunion (or commercial) is an exciting prospect in that it is one of the most popular shows in television history that was not on-air during the Facebook or Twitter era.

“I’m so curious and fascinated to see what comes of it,” @SeinfeldToday co-founder Josh Gondelman tells Lost Remote. “I think Jerry Seinfeld has done a great job adapting his sensibility to new technology with his web series, and the Curb Reunion was great too!”

@SeinfeldToday is a Twitter handle started proposing an interesting question: what if Seinfeld were still on the air today? The handle tweets hypothetical Seinfeld plot lines as if the cast were still stirring trouble in the 2010s. Read more
