Netflix is actually getting a really big 10th season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee (24 episodes) as well as getting exclusive rights to all of the episodes from the previous 9 seasons. The prospect of series development and two stand-up specials (and we’re sure a hefty payday) must have been too nice to pass up for Seinfeld who was sitting atop the Crackle hilltop.
If you’re keeping score, Netflix nowhas Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, Amy Schumer, and Jerry Seinfeld on deck for comedy specials this year.
We’re only in January of 2017, but it seems Netflix has taken most of the cake when it comes to the big time comedy specials. In fact, would be hard to imagine them not being to able to have and eat their cake in this scenario.
