Seinfeld heading to Netflix in 2021

Seinfeld heading to Netflix in 2021

The iconic "show about nothing", whose episodes are now available to stream on Hulu, will move to Netflix the year after next.

NBCUniversal announced on Tuesday that its upcoming streaming platform and Netflix competitor, called Peacock , will launch in April 2020 with both ad-free and ad-supported plans.

"Seinfeld is the television comedy show that every television comedy is measured against", Ted Sarandos, Netflix's chief content officer, said in a statement.

This is a huge win for Netflix that has lost the rights of two other very popular shows - The Office and Friends. After almost 30 years of its premiere, now Seinfeld takes the center stage.

Martin apologised: "I know I should be at home writing right now, I'm sorry!" But fear not, loyal Game of Thrones fans! For more details on what this prequel could consist of, check out some of our earlier reporting on Martin's new book.

Netflix fought off bids from Hulu, Amazon, WarnerMedia, NBCUniversal and Viacom to land Jerry Sienfeld's titular classic 1990s sitcom, which co-starred Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Michael Richards and Jason Alexander. It seems odd that streaming platforms would be fighting over decades-old content, but these shows are longtime favorites for millions of subscribers, plus they are new to younger viewers. "It's as contemporary and humorous as ever and shall be out there to the world in 4K for the primary time".

The series now streams on Walt Disney Co's Hulu in a deal that runs through 2020.
