When it went off the air in 1998, Seinfeld immediately joined the ranks of Shows That Are Always On. Thanks to syndication, you can find an episode of the show — or an episode of fellow Show That Is Always On Law & Order — at pretty much any time if you’re willing to channel surf long enough.
While that’s a comfort, what many Seinfeld fans really want, particularly those who’ve unplugged their cable boxes and taken to the Netflix life, is to see the show streaming, where they can marathon it until their eyes bleed. Now it seems that’s finally happening.
Variety reports that streaming giant Hulu has closed a deal with Sony Pictures TV for streaming rights to all 180 episodes of what some have called the greatest TV series in history. Word is Hulu is shelling out nearly $1 million per episode, which means Seinfeld co-creators Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David just got even richer.
It also means you’ll finally have all of Seinfeld at your fingertips at all times. We don’t know when yet, but go ahead and get your puffy shirt out of mothballs, because when the show finally does start streaming, it’s gonna be a great day.
Oh, and get ready to have this bass line in your head at all times. Again.
