While it’s considered to be “a show about nothing,” Seinfeld, which is based around the fictional life of comedian Jerry Seinfeld, became a massive ratings grabber for NBC and brought in a slew of catchphrases to the general public such as “double-dipping” and “no soup for you.” Since its last episode on May 14, 1998, the show has been in the top 10 of numerous Best TV Show of All Time lists around the world, including TV Guide and Entertainment Weekly. We take a look at what the cast of the show look like now and see what they’ve been up to since its end.
Since the show ended nearly 20 years ago, comedian Jerry Seinfeld has earned $267 million per year from syndication rights alone. Since 1999, he’s been married to his wife Jessica, who is the founder of GOOD+ Foundation (formerly known as Baby Buggy). They have two sons (Julian Kal and Shepherd Kellen) and one daughter (Sascha) together.
Throughout her illustrious acting career, Julia Louis-Dreyfus earned nine Emmy Awards, including seven for her work in the hit HBO series Veep. In 2016, she was named one of the most influential people in the world by Time. She currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband Brad Hall, who she met while attending Northwestern University.
Since the infamous 2006 incident at the Laugh Factory, Michael Richards had very few roles under his belt after his involvement in the 2007 animated film Bee Movie, which was produced by Jerry Seinfeld. In 2013, he had a role on the TV Land sitcom Kirstie, but the show was canceled after one season. He currently lives in Los Angeles with his second wife Beth and their son Antonio Baz.
Aside from acting, Jason Alexander took some time to direct the music video for Brad Paisley’s “Online,” which earned the New Jersey native a Video of the Year Award at the 2007 Country Music Association Awards. He also sat in the director’s chair for episodes of Mike & Molly and Everybody Hates Chris.
Wayne Knight, who was a target of a 2014 internet death hoax, dove back into the voice acting world with roles such as Emperor Zurg in Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, Dojo in Xiaolin Showdown, and Mr. Blik in Catscratch. He has been married to his second wife Clare de Chenu since 2006.
