Comedian and actor Jerry Seinfeld has confirmed that he’s “almost impossible” to write a new Seinfeld script.
Speaking at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, the “Seinfeld” creator admitted that writing a new episode of the show was “like trying to write an episode of Mad Men”.
Seinfeld, who has been an outspoken critic of Donald Trump in recent months, added that he would have to “rethink the show”.
Seemingly a reference to a comment Trump made at a press conference earlier this year, when he suggested that “every single one of us” would be able to write the next episode of Seinfeld.
“We can’t do a pilot, so if I can’t get to a script, I can at least make it harder for myself,” Seinfeld said.
“And I know a lot of writers have had that experience.”
Seinfeld also confirmed that the series finale of the series he wrote in 2011 was not yet complete, as he “had a very rough time”.
“I think I did something I’d like to do.
I did a lot with it,” Seemie said.
However, he added that his time writing the episode was “one of the great highs of my career”.
“You do a lot and it feels like the end of the world,” he said.
The show’s fifth and final season was released in December last year.
The episode, which aired in April, was described by Seinfeld as “a story about the end”.
“It’s like being in a movie that has a lot more characters, a lot less tension, a whole lot more drama,” Seimie said of the final episode.
“You know, it’s the same feeling you get when you watch a really good movie.
It’s just kind of thrilling and you feel like you’re in the middle of something really big.”
Seimies final season of Segeis sitcoms saw him become an outspoken advocate for civil rights, in contrast to his own work.
In his book, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, Seinfeld wrote that “the greatest threat to our society is not race or gender, it is class”.
“This is not a story about race or class, it has nothing to do with those,” he wrote.
“I know you don’t want to hear this, but race and class are very real and very much alive.”
In an interview with CNN last year, Seimys lawyer Richard Hasen said that the comedian would be “extremely disappointed” if he didn’t receive the final script for his ninth season.
Seinfeld’s wife, Mary Seinfeld Newman, has also said that she was “very, very surprised” by the news, with the actress also stating that she “wouldn’t read” the script.
“It would be a disaster,” Seimmies sister, Carrie Seinfeld Schumacher, said in February.
“If I were him, I’d be very disappointed.”
Seemies comments come just days after the New York Times reported that the writer of a second Seinfeld movie is preparing to leave the series, in a move that will leave the show without a creator.
Seemier is also in talks with HBO for the production of a new film.
