Netflix has announced that the entirety of Seinfeld is coming to the streaming service starting on October 1st. The show hasn’t been available on a streaming service since it went off Hulu on June 23rd, so there’s probably some pent-up demand.
Not only will Seinfeld be available to view again, but it may end up looking better than viewers remember. When Netflix first announced that it was buying the show’s streaming rights, it said it would stream it in 4K for the first time.

Netflix announced that it acquired the rights to Seinfeld almost two years ago. At that time, Netflix was fixing to lose Friends to the then-upcoming HBO Max, along with The Office, which went to NBCUniversal’s Peacock. Seinfeld seemingly hasn’t been as big of a hit as the other two shows on streaming. Uproxx reports that Friends made up 4 percent of Netflix’s viewing and The Office 7 percent. Seinfeld was less than a percent of Hulu’s views, according to CNBC.
