Seinfeld will also film two new comedy specials.
The comedian will debut 24 new episodes of the comedy series in late 2017 with subsequent instalments coming in 2018. Netflix has also gained the rights to the 59 previous episodes which first aired on Cackle.

As part of the deal Seinfeld will also film two new stand-up specials exclusively for Netflix. The news comes just over a year-and-a-half after Hulu bought the rights to stream all 180 episodes of nineties sitcom ‘Seinfeld’ in a deal reported to be worth $180 million.
“When I first started thinking about ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,’ the entire Netflix business model consisted of mailing out DVDs in envelopes,” Seinfeld told Variety in a statement.
“I love that we are now joining together, both at very different points. 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.”
