Members of the ‘Seinfeld’ cast reunited for the first time since the hit sitcom ended 16 years ago for a new special post-Super Bowl edition of ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.’ Jerry Seinfeld recruited Jason Alexander and Wayne Knight for the preview of the new episode of his hit web series. Thre three reunited in Tom’s Resturant, where their characters often ate during the NBC Emmy Award-winning show.
The preview for the new ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ episode, which is now available on Crackle, was shown last night during the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show. In the new episode, Seinfeld picks up his “best friend for almost every single day of the 1990s,” George Costanza, in a 1976 American Motors Pacer. Seinfeld described the car as being perfect for Costanza, since it “doesn’t work, looks ridiculous and falls apart.” The two ride together to Tom’s Restuant, which was renamed as Monk’s Cafe on ‘Seinfeld,’ for a cup of coffee, where they’re interruped by a crazed Newman.
Crackle announced it will air a fourth season of ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,’ which is executive produced by Seinfeld and is the numbe one original series on the VOD site, earlier this year. The new season will feature six new episodes on all Crackle platforms and the show’s official website. The season 3 finale, with special guest Howard Stern, will air this Thursday.
