SALT LAKE CITY — Jerry Seinfeld isn’t saying no to a “Seinfeld” reboot.
The comedian appeared on “Ellen” last week and answered questions about whether he would bring back the famous NBC sitcom, saying that "it's possible."
Seinfeld told "Entertainment Tonight" last year that the idea of a “Seinfeld” reboot didn’t excite him.
"Maybe it's nice that you continue to love it instead of us tampering with something that went pretty well," he explained.
The idea of a "Seinfeld" reunion has been circulating for several years, as the subject became a storyline in a 2009 episode of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” an HBO show led by "Seinfeld" co-creator Larry David.
“Seinfeld” episodes are currently available for streaming on Hulu.
If “Seinfeld” were to return, it would join a growing list of old shows returning to national television.
Last year, the NBC sitcom “Will and Grace” returned to the station, and it has already been renewed for a second season.
Similarly, NBC announced last year it was in talks to bring back “The Office” for the 2018-19 TV season with both new and old characters. Steve Carell, who played the famous Michael Scott, would reportedly not be involved, and John Krasinski, who played Jim on the show, recently said he hadn’t been asked to return either.
Like Seinfeld, Jennifer Aniston said she doesn’t think a “Friends” reboot will ever happen but is open to the possibility.
“Anything is a possibility, Ellen,” she said on “Ellen,” according to US Weekly. “Anything! Right? I mean, George Clooney got married! That’s like anything can happen. I think it’s wonderful.”1 comment on this story
Similarly, ABC announced it is bringing back “Roseanne,” the sitcom starring Roseanne Barr and John Goodman, beginning March 27.
The revival ignited some controversy, as Barr, who admitted she’s a President Donald Trump supporter, said that her character on the show will support the president. Fans of “Last Man Standing” — the Tim Allen sitcom that was canceled last year — spoke out in protest since they believed “Last Man Standing” was shut down for its conservative values, according to the Deseret News.
