Jerry Seinfeld rejected live ‘Seinfeld’ offer, open to more ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’

Seinfeld -Let’s face it: In this age of TV Revivals, everyone wants a bigger piece of the nostalgia pie. With that in mind, it really should not surprise anyone that there was at one point people out there with an interest in taking a bite out of one of the most-successful sitcoms of all time in “Seinfeld.”

How much so? We’ll let Jerry speak for himself in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter:

“… [We] did have an offer — I won’t say who from — to do a new, live episode of Seinfeld on TV. [It’s not happening.]”

Is there a part of our heart that wants more “Seinfeld”? Absolutely, but there are also certain things that are truly better off when they remain in a time capsule. This is one of them. It’s a show that was great when it was on, and while it’s pretty clear in our mind that it could work today, there’s no need for it. Jerry still has a great career, and there’s no need to take a step back into this.

Jerry also says in this interview that there are potential TV suitors for repackaged “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” episodes (watch now on Crackle), and that he is open to doing something more on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” now that it has been confirmed that Larry Davis is interested in doing more. The closest thing to a “Seinfeld” reunion happened on that particular show, which is probably why there is no need for there to actually be another one.

Of course, we still want to hear from you on the subject: Do you think a live “Seinfeld” could be interesting? Share below, and head over here to secure some other TV news on all we cover at CarterMatt, sent right over to you via our official newsletter. (Photo: NBC.)
