Without having an iota of doubt, Seinfeld will start streaming on Netflix. It has been a long-awaited wish of the fans to see Seinfeld, and now this is happening. It was in September 2019 when Netflix publicized its intent to acquire global rights for streaming.
Of late comedy shows have taken the upper hand in the entertainment industry and this is something which is going to change the course of TV sitcoms. The success of Friends and Big Bang Theory has proved that the genre is going to take over others.
We are hoping that the 90s series will bring a hell lot of comedy to the forefront. And this is the right time to air the series amid the growing frustration of people, and it will be something which will give a healing touch. Seinfeld was a hit in the 90s, and fans were delighted to know that Netflix is going to take the realm of the series. In the year 2021, the series will air globally.
Why will the series be rolled out globally?
One of the prominent reasons for a global rollout is the fact that the original series had a limited outreach. With the advent of information and communication technology, the series can reach to a considerably large pool of audience. The series already reached to the global audience when it started airing on Hulu. Netflix is going to expand the outreach to an even greater pool of audience.
When is the series expected to release globally?
As of now, we don’t have a release date. So it is going to be tough to predict an exact time, but it can be predicted for sure. The series was already streaming on Hulu, so the release date is somehow related to the expiration date of their contract. Hulu started streaming the series in June 2015.
There is another bone of contention with the license transfer and renewal of the series, as it is mostly dependent on the dates specified by the set. Even in the case of Seinfeld, it started streaming in April in the UK on amazon prime, and then it was canceled. So there are technicalities that may act as a caveat to the streaming.
There is another possibility that the series may not be released at once. There is a possibility of delay in the series depending on the country in which you live. This is something that one has to take into consideration before thinking of binge-watching the series.
What’s new with Seinfeld in 2021?
Hulu was already streaming the series, so there is an added advantage for Netflix as they will be getting a 4K resolution. This is something that will attract more fans as a new audience may not have found it appealing in the original decision. So the fans have to wait for a while before Netflix announce an exact date for the series. It is expected that it will start streaming once the rights are transferred, and other formalities are completed.
