Seinfeld Leaving Hulu For Netflix: Release Date, Details Explained
After five years calling Hulu home, Seinfeld’s run on the streaming network is set to run out at midnight on June 23, 2021.
In September, it was reported that the show about nothing would head to Netflix in 2021. The question of exactly when remains unanswered, though sources told Vulture that it’s likely not to land on the streaming platform until sometime this fall.
“Seinfeld is the television comedy that all television comedy is measured against,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, said in a statement to the LA Times in 2019. “It is as fresh and funny as ever and will be available to the world in 4K for the first time.”
Now, the time has finally come for the great migration. Though fans will have to live in streaming purgatory in the interim. (Unless, of course, you’ve got the whole series on DVD, and…still have a DVD player.)
In 2015, Hulu paid a reported $130 Million for the streaming rights to the legendary TV show, which lent every episode of its nine seasons to the platform. At the time, Seinfeld said, in reference to Hulu running the episodes in full, as opposed to sped up versions you might have watched via cable syndication, “Now you will see the full thing as Larry and I cut it in the ’90s as we thought it was best.”
We can only assume Netflix will do the same, but we’ll have to wait until fall to confirm. Yada yada yada, watch this space.
