Seinfeld: Where Are They Now?
Seinfeld has cemented itself as one of the greatest comedies in television history. With nine seasons, dozens of catchphrases and memorable, whacky characters, the show has managed to stick with us even after all these years. A huge amount of the show’s success is owed to the series’ tremendous cast. The four, quirky, self-centered, New Yorkers truly made the show special.

Since the show’s conclusion in 1998, Louis-Dreyfus has managed to find her way as the star of a variety of television shows, most notably CBS’ The New Adventures of Old Christine and HBO’s hit show Veep. Because of her long list of accolades and contributions to the world of comedy and entertainment, Louis-Dreyfus was named one of Time Magazine’s most influential people in the world in 2016.
