Staff Reporter | On 21, Jun 2018Reading time: 5 mins
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is lining up a fresh new batch this summer, with Jerry Seinfeld’s talk show returning to Netflix in July.
The series, which (spoiler alert) sees Seinfeld hop in a car with a comedian to go for coffee, first began back in 2012, going on to become one of the most famous online programmes, thanks to guests including people such as Mel Brooks, Chris Rock and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Last year, Netflix inked a deal to become the exclusive home for the series, with 24 new episodes ordered. After one round of coffees, Netflix is serving up a new round of hot drinks.
“Jerry Seinfeld’s easy nature and willingness to listen as well as interject with his own observational material make for fun and funny viewing, even if you don’t like coffee,” we wrote in our review of the show, picking our highlights of the existing crop.
These dozen new episodes will include guests ranging from Ellen DeGeneres and Dave Chapelle to Tracy Morgan, Kate McKinnon, Alec Baldwin, Hasan Minhaj and Zach Galifianakis. The episodes will drop on Friday 6th July. Here’s a trailer:

“I only had one joke that works…” That’s Jerry Seinfeld talking about the days when he was starting out on the circuit in his new Netflix special.
The stand-up show, which is the first in a landmark deal between the comedy legend and the streaming giant, takes us back to before people called him a king or the-guy-from-that-thing. From 6th May 1981, when he made his first apearance on The Tonight Show, to today, when he’s telling that one joke of his, the special promises to provide a mix of nostalgia, comedy insight and, hopefully, laughs.
Jerry Before Seinfeld premieres on Netflix on 19th September. Here’s the trailer:

Jerry Seinfeld’s first Netflix comedy special is set for release this September.
The comedian inked a deal with the streaming giant earlier this year, which includes new episodes of his web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, and multiple stand-up shows. 24 new episodes of Comedians in Cars will arrive exclusively on Netflix in instalments, beginning late 2017. Previous episodes of the Emmy-nominated series will also become available exclusively on Netflix at the same time.
The multi-faceted production agreement, starting in 2017, which will also make the streaming giant the home of Seinfeld’s new comedic endeavours. Seinfeld will help develop scripted and non-scripted comedy programming for Netflix, and will also film two, all-new stand-up shows exclusively for Netflix members globally.
Now, the first is on its way. Jerry Before Seinfeld will see the comedian share the notes behind his comedy material dating way before he starred in the sitcom Seinfeld. A taste of what’s in store is now on Netflix’s Netflix Comedy Instagram account, with the whole special set to premiere on 19th September.
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and new Jerry Seinfeld specials head to Netflix
18th January 2017
Jerry Seinfeld is coming to Netflix in a major deal that includes new episodes of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and multiple stand-up shows.
The web series, which sees Seinfeld hop in a car with a comedian to go for coffee, first began back in 2012, going on to become one of the most famous online programmes, thanks to guests including people such as Mel Brooks, Chris Rock and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
Now, Netflix will become the exclusive home for the series. 24 new episodes of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee will arrive exclusively on Netflix in instalments, beginning late 2017. Previous episodes of the Emmy-nominated series will also become available exclusively on Netflix at the same time.
The agreement is a multi-faceted production deal, starting in 2017, which will also make the streaming giant the home of Seinfeld’s new comedic endeavours. The comedian will film two, all-new stand-up shows exclusively for Netflix members globally, the first arriving on the world’s leading Internet TV network later this year. Seinfeld will also help develop scripted and non-scripted comedy programming for Netflix. Additional elements of the deal will be announced later.
“Jerry is known the world over as both a great TV innovator and beloved comic voice,” says Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix. “We are incredibly proud to welcome him to the Netflix comedy family.”
“When I first started thinking about Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, the entire Netflix business model consisted of mailing out DVDs in envelopes. I love that we are now joining together, both at very different points,” adds Seinfeld, who produces, directs and hosts the show. “I am also very excited to be working with Ted Sarandos at Netflix, a guy and a place that not only have the same enthusiasm for the art of stand up comedy as I do, but the most amazing technology platform to deliver it in a way that has never existed before. I am really quite charged up to be moving there.”
The deal with Netflix follows the acquisition of all nine seasons of the sitcom Seinfeld by Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
