Decades since its final episode aired, Seinfeld is still regarded as one of the best television sitcoms ever made, with many fans regularly returning to it as a cherished comfort watch.


Fortunately, Netflix is about to make that much easier, as every episode of the series will soon be added to the streamer's catalogue, which will likely have the added benefit of introducing the show to a new generation of fans.
