No reboot for you: Jerry Seinfeld shoots down show's return

With "Will & Grace" returning to NBC after an 11-year hiatus, it's only natural to wonder if "Seinfeld," which aired from 1989 to 1998, will make a comeback, too.

But why mess with success? At least that's Jerry Seinfeld's answer to not bringing back his classic eponymous show.

"Why?" Seinfeld told Entertainment Tonight after being asked about a possible reunion. "Maybe it's nice that you continue to love it instead of us tampering with something that went pretty well."

While "Seinfeld" may not be returning, all episodes are available on Hulu.

Seinfeld does host a web series, "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," in which a few years back he invited former co-stars Jason Alexander (who portrayed George Costanza) and Wayne Knight (Newman) along for rides, treating fans to a mini-reunion.

The 63-year-old comedian also said that being a husband and a father of three has changed his act.

"That's half my show now," Seinfeld said to ET, later adding that it's taken his wife, Jessica, some time to "understand that nothing I say means anything."

Some of that new material can be seen in Seinfeld's new special, "Jerry Before Seinfeld," which is now streaming on Netflix.
