He wants to be a re-gifter.
Jerry Seinfeld won’t rule out a revival of his beloved sitcom “Seinfeld,” the comedian revealed Tuesday on “Ellen.”
“It’s possible,” he teased after host Ellen DeGeneres asked him about the potential of a “Seinfeld” reboot.
Seinfeld, 63, didn’t expound further, but his acknowledgement that even a slight chance exists that the show could return was enough to earn a raucous reaction from the audience.
Of course, there’s been plenty of yada, yada, yada from hopeful fans begging for a “Seinfeld” reboot for years, and Seinfeld did not seem eager to bring the series back when he discussed the matter several months ago.
“Why?” Seinfeld told Entertainment Tonight in September. “Maybe it’s nice that you continue to love it instead of us tampering with something that went pretty well.”
A “Seinfeld” reunion was a storyline during the seventh season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” — “Seinfeld” co-creator Larry David’s show — in 2009.
“Seinfeld” aired on NBC from 1989 to 1998, and the episodes are currently available on Hulu.

Seinfeld currently hosts the series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” which recently moved over to Netflix after airing for nine seasons online. The show consists of Seinfeld cruising in vintage cars with his comedic guests en route to getting coffee.
A number of fan-favorite series, including “Will and Grace” and “Full House,” have returned in recent years, with several others — such as “Roseanne” — also on the way.
Tuesday marked the second day in a row that DeGeneres has asked a guest about possibly reviving a beloved show. She spoke to Jim Krasinski about the much-rumored reprisal of “The Office,” to which he admitted he hadn’t heard anything from producers but acknowledged he’d be interested in doing the show if it actually returned.
