Jerry Seinfeld's 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee' series might leave Crackle for other streaming options

Jerry Seinfeld's 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee'

“Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” which comedian Jerry Seinfeld created, is heading towards the end of its contract with Sony’s Crackle. After making its debut on Crackle in 2012, the series has aired 53 episodes and is in its ninth season.

But the Emmy-nominated series might part ways with Sony. The New York Times reported that this season could be the last of the show on this platform and that Seinfeld is supposedly in talks with other streaming services, including Netflix and Hulu. If Seinfeld was to head to another platform, existing episodes could be sold to the other, while new ones were still shown on Crackle. Or he could remove the whole series completely and debut all new episodes on the new platform.

Sony said that the 53 episodes have been streamed over 100 million times, according to The Times. According to Sony, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” is the platform’s most-watched show and it maintains a production role on the series.

“Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” is based on Seinfeld driving around in vintage cars that he selects based upon the guest and having casual conversations with comedians. Guests have included David Letterman, Tina Fey, Jon Stewart, Barack Obama, Will Ferrell and more.
