Jerry Seinfeld isnt saying no to a Seinfeld reboot.

The comedian appeared on Ellen last week and answered questions about whether he would bring back the famous NBC sitcom, saying that "it's possible."

Seinfeld told "Entertainment Tonight" last year that the idea of a Seinfeld reboot didnt excite him.

"Maybe it's nice that you continue to love it instead of us tampering with something that went pretty well," he explained.

The idea of a "Seinfeld" reunion has been circulating for several years, as the subject became a storyline in a 2009 episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, an HBO show led by "Seinfeld" co-creator Larry David.

Seinfeld episodes are currently available for streaming on Hulu.

If Seinfeld were to return, it would join a growing list of old shows returning to national television.

Last year, the NBC sitcom Will and Grace returned to the station, and it has already been renewed for a second season.

Similarly, NBC announced last year it was in talks to bring back The Office for the 2018-19 TV season with both new and old characters. Steve Carell, who played the famous Michael Scott, would reportedly not be involved, and John Krasinski, who played Jim on the show, recently said he hadnt been asked to return either.

Like Seinfeld, Jennifer Aniston said she doesnt think a Friends reboot will ever happen but is open to the possibility.

Anything is a possibility, Ellen, she said on Ellen, according to US Weekly. Anything! Right? I mean, George Clooney got married! Thats like anything can happen. I think its wonderful.

Similarly, ABC announced it is bringing back Roseanne, the sitcom starring Roseanne Barr and John Goodman, beginning March 27.

The revival ignited some controversy, as Barr, who admitted shes a President Donald Trump supporter, said that her character on the show will support the president. Fans of Last Man Standing the Tim Allen sitcom that was canceled last year spoke out in protest since they believed Last Man Standing was shut down for its conservative values, according to the Deseret News.
