We’ve known Seinfeld was coming to Netflix for a couple of years now. Netflix picked up the streaming rights to the series after Hulu’s deal for Seinfeld expired. We were hoping to see Seinfeld added to Netflix New Year’s Day 2021, and then again in June, but obviously, neither of those things happened.
Instead, we’ve had to wait until October to watch Seinfeld on Netflix, and that wait is nearly over.
Seinfeld release time on Netflix
Seinfeld will be released on Netflix at 12:01 a.m. PT on Friday, Oct. 1. I’m sure there will be more than a few die-hard Seinfeld fans staying up past midnight on Thursday to watch episodes of the series as soon as it’s available to stream on Netflix.
Obviously, it’s probably a little easier for people on the West Coast to binge-watch Seinfeld as soon as possible. If you live on the East Coast, you have to wait until 3 a.m. ET to start binge-watch one of the all-time great TV shows.
Immediately, Seinfeld becomes one of the best TV shows on Netflix. There’s no debate about how good this show is and where it stands in TV history, which means there are few shows on Netflix comparable to the comedy series.
It will be interesting to see Seinfeld becomes as popular as Friends and The Office were when they were on Netflix. Friends has since moved to HBO Max, while The Office is streaming on Peacock. Obviously, Seinfeld was on Hulu. But, none of those streaming services have the reach that Netflix has. There are way more Netflix subscribers than HBO Max, Peacock, and Hulu subscribers.
There’s a really good chance Seinfeld becomes the most popular show on Netflix from now and through the end of the year and possibly beyond that. It’s the perfect show to binge-watch on Netflix, and without other top comedies, Seinfeld is perfectly positioned for the masses who haven’t seen this show to start watching for the first time. That’s what happened with Friends and The Office.
Teens and other young people (and older people, too!) missed Friends and The Office while they were on TV, but they were able to catch up and watch both shows on Netflix over and over again. Seinfeld has that same potential on Netflix, for sure.
Get ready to see Seinfeld on the Netflix Top 10 very soon and for a very long time!
