Jerry Seinfeld is reportedly keeping a glimmer of hope alive for the fans eager for a revival of his beloved namesake comedy, even after the removal of the idea in the past.

In an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Tuesday to talk about his web series ‘ Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” the host asked Seinfeld about the chances of a revival, pointing to the recent comeback of the various TV shows, E News reported.

“I think I know where you’re going with this,” Seinfeld said, “but why don’t you go finish it.”

“Do you think, Jerry?” asked DeGeneres, “there might be a possibility that ‘Seinfeld’ would come back?”

After responding, “is It possible,” Seinfeld was met with an explosion of cheers and applause from the audience.

“Oh, they love the idea,” he said, gesturing to the adoring crowd.

But before anyone gets too excited, this is not the first time Seinfeld is asked about a revival.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in 2016, he admitted to receiving an offer for a live episode of the show, but said he never really considered.

And when asked again in 2017 by Entertainment Tonight Online, the comedian rejected the idea, saying: “Perhaps it is fun that you continue to love instead of us to mess with something that went pretty well.”

“Seinfeld” went off the air in May 1998.
