For a show about nothing, Seinfeld sure was funny. It still is funny, living on through syndication, streaming and DVDs long after its historic 1989 to 1998 run. If you’re wondering how to stream Seinfeld in 2021, there’s good news because the show has just arrived on Netflix to fill all of your binge watching dreams.
Like The Office and Friends, Seinfeld is supremely bingeable largely because there are so many episodes to choose from and it’s great to watch closely or casually; if you’re working from home or need something to be on television while you do chores, it’s a great choice.
Seinfeld is available to stream on Netflix
The beloved series stars Jerry Seinfeld as a fictionalized version of himself, along with Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Elaine Benes, Jason Alexander as George Costanza and Michael Richards as Cosmo Kramer.
The series followed the foursome’s exploits as they navigated dating, work and their lives in New York and even though the episodes were some of the funniest of any show on television, the show was largely about “nothing”. The plot points revolved around their (fictionalized) daily lives and whatever happened, and though it was scripted TV it felt random and often nonsensical, even down to the most random plot for a series finale ever.
The show became the fodder for talk at the water cooler in a pre-internet era when people gathered around their television sets for must-watch TV, and even now old episodes of the show still captivate us and end up as memes and topics of conversation on social media. After years on television and then many more years in syndication, and now in the steaming sphere, Seinfeld continues to live on.
If you don’t have Netflix, fear not. Seinfeld is now available on Comedy Central if you have cable, joining the likes of South Park, The Office and Friends. So if you can’t stream Seinfeld, it’s still available to watch on TV.
