Can I Seinfeld reunion be in the works?

Below, check out more responses to fan questions from the appearance:

What if Seinfeld were still on TV today?

Everything would have had to change. The character would have gotten married and started families, I suppose. But I still think everything has its life cycle and if you respect it, people enjoy it longer. And if you disrespect it-look at The Hangover movie. If you made just one, the movie would be a comedy legend. Because they made three, it isn't.

Favorite Seinfeld episode to film?

The Rye, because we got to shoot that at Paramount Studios in LA which was the first time that we thought "wow this is almost like a real TV show." ... We thought "this is where the ADULT shows are, the REAL shows like Murphy Brown."

On the real idea behind Seinfeld:

The pitch for the show, the real pitch, when Larry and I went to NBC in 1988, was we want to show how a comedian gets his material. The show about nothing was just a joke in an episode many years later, and Larry and I to this day are surprised that it caught on as a way that people describe the show, because to us it's the opposite of that.

Seinfeld aired on NBC from July 5, 1989, to May 14, 1998. It lasted nine seasons, and is now insyndication. It was created by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld, the latter starring as a fictionalized version of himself. Set predominantly in an apartment block in Manhattan's Upper West Side in New York City, the show features a handful of Jerry's friends and acquaintances, particularly best friend George Costanza (Jason Alexander), former girlfriend Elaine Benes (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), and neighbor across the hall Cosmo Kramer(Michael Richards).

Seinfeld was produced by Castle Rock Entertainment. In syndication the series was distributed by Columbia Pictures Television and Columbia TriStar Television. Sony Pictures Television distributed the series since 2002.
