Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee was purchased by Netflix in 2017 as part of the California-based streaming service’s mega-deal with the 10-time Emmy winner.
Seinfeld announced the new season via a tweet featuring official artwork from Netflix, noting that his experience filming with one of this season’s big-name guests, Eddie Murphy, was “really special.”
