comedians in cars getting coffee

Netflix has signed a deal with comedian Jerry Seinfeld to bring his 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee' to the streaming service. Seinfeld will also film two new stand-up specials that will be exclusive to Netflix.

'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee' sees Seinfeld take another comedian out in a very expensive car. They go for a drive, and – as the title suggests – go somewhere for a coffee. But the show's not about that, it's about comedians talking about the craft of comedy.

The show will get 24 new episodes for Netflix, plus 59 previous episodes will come to the service (it previously aired on Sony's Crackle streaming service). And it will get even more episodes next year.

As if that wasn't keeping Seinfeld busy enough, he will also film two new stand-up specials for Netflix. There's no word on what these will entail, but expect his usual observational shtick.

Seinfeld is following fellow comedians Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle onto Netflix. Chris Rock's deal was a multi-million dollar one, so we would expect Seinfeld's to be of a similar value. Which is no laughing matter.
