Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee Renewed for Second Season
Jerry Seinfeld will continue to combine his love for comedy, vintage cars and coffee with the renewal of the popular web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. The New York Times reports that Seinfeld and Sony Pictures Television will produce 24 new episodes for the second season.
Unlike the previous advertisement-free 10 episodes, the goal for season two is to produce a profit from their Internet series. “This next go-round we’re going to have to figure out some sort of revenue stream, so it makes more sense,” Seinfeld informed.
Steve Mosko, the president of Sony Pictures Television, explained that the first season attracted more than 10 million visitors to the Sony website Crackle.
Each episode of the series features Seinfeld introducing a classic car while driving to pick up a guest comedian then traveling to a restaurant for coffee while discussing haphazardly comical topics.
Larry David, Ricky Gervais and Alec Baldwin were among the comedians in the first season with the last episode featuring a hilarious (yet heartfelt) interaction between Seinfeld and his former co-star, Michael Richards.
