(Newser) – Jerry Seinfeld wasn’t worried that reuniting with George, Elaine, and Kramer might be considered double-dipping, Entertainment Weekly reports. “There was a little part of me that said, ‘Do we really want to tamper?’” he says, emphasizing that the Seinfeld cast's upcoming appearances on Curb Your Enthusiasm will be iconic quartet's first and last reunion. “But to hell with it. How much damage can you really do?”

Both Jason Alexander and Michael Richards say they found it remarkably easy to slip back into their old characters. It “was freaky how it just came right back out,” Alexander says of George Costanza. Producers even managed to scrounge up the same sets used for Jerry’s apartment and Monk’s coffee shop. The Seinfeld reunion plays a major part in this season’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, which will see Larry David try to win back his estranged wife.
