Julia Louis-Dreyfus says she isn’t eager to do a reboot of “Seinfeld.”
“I don’t want to sully it. It was pretty special and it’s been a long time now,” Louis-Dreyfus told Net-A-Porter. “You don’t want to f–k something like that up.”
Louis-Dreyfus, 58, played Elaine Benes on the classic sitcom, which aired for nine seasons between 1989 and 1998.
The show has already seen a reunion of sorts. “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Seinfeld” co-creator Larry David’s hit HBO series, staged a fictional reunion for the “show about nothing” featuring Louis-Dreyfus and her co-stars in 2009.
Jerry Seinfeld wasn’t as dismissive of the possibility of bringing the show back during an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in early 2018.
“It’s possible,” he said after DeGeneres asked about a potential revival.
Louis-Dreyfus’ current comedy series, the political satire “Veep,” is in its seventh and final season.
The actress also opened up during the new interview about her recent battle with breast cancer, during which she went through six rounds of chemotherapy.
“If I hadn’t had a show that was relying on me, I don’t know that I would have gone so public with it,” she told Net-A-Porter. “But I had 200 people waiting to go back to work. And I wanted to talk about it in a way that could maybe highlight something important.
“Universal healthcare was an important issue to me prior to getting this diagnosis, and it certainly is even more so now.”
