A long-awaited reunion of the Seinfeld cast will happen later this year — just not on NBC.
The four principal cast members of the classic sitcom will appear together in the forthcoming season of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander and Michael Richards will play themselves in several episodes of the HBO series, EW.com reports.
Alexander and Louis-Dreyfus have made multiple guest appearances on Curb, which stars Seinfeld co-creator Larry David as a fictional version of himself, and Seinfeld had a brief cameo in 2004. The coming episodes, however, will mark the first time all four cast members have reunited on a scripted (or semi-scripted) show since Seinfeld ended in 1998.
The cast did come together for an NBC special, The Seinfeld Story, in 2004 that coincided with the release of the show’s first few seasons on DVD. Seinfeld is also executive producing an unscripted series called The Marriage Ref for NBC, though he’s not expected to appear on camera.
Curb Your Enthusiasm last aired in November 2007. There’s no exact timetable for the show’s return to HBO, but new episodes are expected to start airing later this year
