Seinfeld reunion: Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jason Alexander have reunited!

Elaine Benes and George Costanza are back in the house!

Anyone who owned a TV in the 90s would tell you that a show about nothing, meant so much to so many.

From the witty one-liners in the script, to the comedic timing genius that was Seinfeld, the show brought a legion fans nothing but good humour and joy - and now it's about to do it again as some of our favourite stars have reunited.

That's right, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who played Elaine and Jason Alexander, who played George, have had a virtual catchup via an Instagram Live chat and it's probably the closest we'll get to a reboot.

"I can't stand it, I'm so happy to see you!" Julia said to former co-star.

"Jason suggested that we both watch 'The Chinese Restaurant' from Season 2," she said. "And we watched 'The Contest' from season 4."

"It was really like doing an unrehearsed play. You had a couple of moments that made me laugh out loud," he told Louis-Dreyfus about The Chinese Restaurant episode, which he said was one of his most memorable episodes from the whole series.

"I remember feeling like it was like the inmates running the asylum," she quipped. "It was a real feeling of 'f--- it,' we're just gonna do this."

In between giggles, Julia 59, and Alexander, 60, also recalled their time on set with other co-stars like Jerry Seinfeld, Michael Richards, and on-screen parents, Estelle Harris and Lawrence Tierney.

A fan also asked how Julia felt being the only woman in the Seinfeld cast.

"It was a little strange for me, but I liked it. We were a small group, it had a specialness to it. It was a tad lonely at times, to a certain extent," Julia said.

The two re-united in a bid to raise money for frontline coronavirus workers. And they even mentioned how they were being impacted by the world-wide pandemic.

"Like you, my family is disproportionately blessed, thanks to God and Jerry Seinfeld," Alexander said.

"My poor son Gabe, who feeds off of interactions with people, is miserable, he's miserable. It's unpleasant for me and family but it's not critical like the people I care about."
