Seinfeld has been on Netflix for almost six months and will not be available anywhere for the foreseeable future. The show will be phased out unless a new arrangement is reached in 2026.
Between 2015 through 2021, Hulu controlled the streaming rights to Seinfeld in the United States. There were rumors that Netflix did not intend to carry the show before Hulu took it up. Streaming rights were also acquired by Channel 4 and Prime Video in the United Kingdom, Crave in Canada, and Stan in Australia.
That all changed in September 2019, when Netflix was granted global rights in 2021.
According to various statistical sources, Netflix had a modest start after adding Seinfeld. That is still the case months after its publication. The show’s popularity on IMDb is still higher than on Hulu.
When is Seinfeld going to leave Netflix?
When the contract was signed, some sites stated it was for a 5-year term. We can confirm that this is the truth and that it is five years after the addition to Netflix, not when the transaction was made.
According to What’s-on-Netflix information, all regions will lose the show at the same time on October 1st, 2026.
We may anticipate learning more about the series’ future streaming availability around 2025.
Netflix is Jerry Seinfeld’s home, or at least they’re attempting to be, with many of his previous ventures now accessible and a new one in the works. Netflix has two stand-up specials available, as well as the whole Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee collection. Unfrosted: The Pop-Tart Story, his forthcoming Netflix film, will be released in 2023.
