Viacom has announced it acquired the exclusive cable television rights to reruns of the sitcom, Seinfeld.
All 180 episodes of the series will be available — starting in October 2021 — on Viacom’s channels Comedy Central, Paramount Network and TV Land.
Set in New York City, the show initially ran 1989-98. It starred Jerry Seinfeld as a fictionalized version of himself, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander and Michael Richards as his quirky friends.
The Viacom news arrives just days after it was announced that Netflix had secured the global streaming rights to the show.
