Seinfeld: Netflix announcement trailer teases the greatest show about nothing

What’s the deal with Netflix releasing a teaser trailer for Seinfeld? Well, the streaming network is preparing to launch all 180 episodes of the greatest show about nothing on October 1st. You know what this means, don’t you? Your list of new shows to watch is about to take a major hit. Personally, I already know that Seinfeld being available on Netflix will ruin me. After all, who could resist the urge to follow four miserable friends whose crimes against humanity know no bounds? It’s the kind of sitcom that makes you laugh and feel morally bankrupt at the same time, and yet I can’t get enough.

All 180 episodes of Seinfeld are coming to Netflix on October 1st.

Seinfeld previously streamed on Hulu, but that deal came to an end in June. When the show went up for sale, it was Netflix that wielded its wallet like a flail. Other studios like Amazon, WarnerMedia, NBCUniversal, and Viacom tried to score the sitcom, but Netflix said, “No Seinfeld for you!”

“Larry [David] and I are enormously grateful to Netflix for taking this chance on us. It takes a lot of guts to trust two schmucks who literally had zero experience in television when we made this thing,” said Jerry Seinfeld in a joke statement. “We really got carried away, I guess. I didn’t realize we made so many of them. Hope to recoup god knows how many millions it must have taken to do. But worth all the work if people like it. Crazy project.”

Seinfeld ran for nine seasons on NBC, premiering in July 1989 and concluding in May 1998. The laugh-out-loud sitcom focuses on four friends living in New York City as they contemplate life, nitpick idiosyncrasies, navigate the dating scene, and make everyone around them discontented. It’s a show that’s about everything and nothing at the same time, and it works!

Seinfeld will stream worldwide on Netflix beginning on October 1st.
