Fans Rejoice: “Seinfeld” Alums Join HBO's “Curb”

There's some pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good news for "Seinfeld" fans.

Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander and Michael Richards will appear together on screen in season 7 finale of "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

The reunion marks the first time in 11 years the actors have appeared together on TV.

"Other than the DVD stuff or doing an Oprah kind of thing, no we haven't been together since Seinfeld went off the air," Alexander told the Winnipeg Sun.

The shows' creator and all-around curmudgeon, Larry David, said the on-screen reunion will be "tough to beat."

David said the "Seinfeld" alums will appear in five "Curb" episodes in a storyline about the cast reuniting. David said he worked closely with Seinfeld on the show-within-a-show script, The Associated Press reported.

The season finale will even feature extensive snippets of the show-within-the-show, New Jersey's Star-Ledger reported:

"For years, I've been asked about a 'Seinfeld' reunion," David told reporters at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Pasadena. He always refused, but, "Then I thought it might be very funny to do that on 'Curb.' And I kept thinking about it."

Seinfeld will appear in five episodes, sprinkled throughout the season, and the others will appear in as many as four or five episodes, albeit not always together.

"We'll see writing, see aspects of the read-through, parts of rehearsal, see the show being filmed, and see it on TV," David explained. "You won't see the entire show. You'll see parts of the show. You'll get an idea of what happened (to the 'Seinfeld' characters) 11 years later. Within the show, it will be incorporated into regular 'Curb' episodes. "

"Seinfeld" ended its 11-year run in 1998.
