VOD Pro News2 months ago1 min

Regarded as one of the most influential sitcoms, Seinfeld will find a new home on All 4 from 7 February 2020, as part of a streaming deal with Sony Pictures Television (SPT).

Originally airing between 1989 to 1998, Seinfeld stars Jerry Seinfeld as a stand-up comedian whose life in New York City is made even more chaotic by his quirky group of friends who join him in wrestling with life’s most perplexing, yet often trivial questions.

Described by The Guardian as ‘the greatest US sitcom ever written’, the show also features Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Elaine Benes, Jerry’s ex-girlfriend and current platonic pal; Jason Alexander as George Costanza, Jerry’s neurotic hard-luck best friend; and Michael Richards as Jerry’s eccentric neighbour, Kramer.

Originally running for nine seasons and a total of 180 episodes, the first three seasons of this nostalgic hit will drop onto All 4 on 7 February, with the remaining six made available every Friday until mid-March when the full nine will be available to stream for free.

Charlie Palmer, Managing Editor of All 4 said: “I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off 2020 than with the addition of Seinfeld, one of the most influential sitcoms of all time, to All 4. In making it available for free, we hope to bring a whole new audience to a show that has already earned an enduring and loyal fanbase.
