‘Seinfeld’ Reunion Rumors: Julia Louis-Dreyfus Chimes In

Seinfeld reunion rumors have been swirling due to a recent hint dropped by Jerry Seinfeld himself. Now Julia Louis-Dreyfus is weighing in. The chain of events began during Jerry’s recent stage appearance at the Wang Theater in Boston on October 7th. Discussing the iconic show’s somewhat controversial ending, Jerry teased, Well, I have a little secret for you about the ending. But I can’t really tell it because it is a secret.”

“Here’s what I’ll tell you, OK, but you can’t tell anybody,” Jerry added. “Something is going to happen that has to do with that ending. Hasn’t happened yet. And just what you are thinking about, [we] have also been thinking about it. So you’ll see, we’ll see.”

Thanks to reruns and streaming, Seinfeld remains one of the most popular shows of the 90s. However, the series finale, which 76.3 million viewers tuned in for, left some fans disappointed. In that episode, Jerry, George (Jason Alexander), Elaine (Louis-Dreyfus), and Kramer (Michael Richards) finally pay for their cynical natures. They are arrested and go on trial because rather than help someone in distress, they stood and joked about it. The series ended with the main characters in prison.
