Last season on Crackle's hit series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, series host/creator Jerry Seinfeld welcomed President Barack Obama to the show, in an episode where they literally drove around the White House lawn. While the POTUS won't be returning for Season 8, Crackle has released a new trailer that features the guests Jerry Seinfeld will be welcoming. Thankfully, fans won't have to wait too long for this new season, which is slated to debut next week.
Jerry is back for an eighth season of the hit Crackle series on Thursday, June 16, 2016, with plenty of comedians, cars, and coffee! Guests to appear in season eight of the Emmy nominated series include comedienne Margaret Cho, SNL creator Lorne Michaels, stand-up comic Jim Gaffigan, Last Week Tonight host John Oliver, actor JB Smoove and writer/producer of some of the biggest hit films, Judd Apatow. New shows will stream every Thursday on Crackle.
This trailer reveals that Jerry Seinfeld wants to end his episode with Lorne Michaels in the SNL creator's bathroom, which is apparently where he keeps some of his Emmy Awards. Season 8 will be comprised of six episode starting on Thursday, June 15, debuting at 11:30 PM ET on Crackle. The show has already been renewed through Season 9 on Crackle, but it isn't known exactly when that new season will debut yet, or if Crackle plans on renewing the series for Season 10 and beyond.
Since its debut in July 2012, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee has delivered more than 40 million streams and garnered rave reviews. The show earned Jerry Seinfeld a Primetime Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Special Class - Short-Format Nonfiction Programs category and two recent 2014 Webby Awards for Best Individual Performance (both the Webby and the People's Voice Award). Additional accolades include a Bronze Telly Award in 2014 for Branded Content with Acura; a 2014 Webby Media and Entertainment Honoree and Branded Content Honoree for Interactive Advertising and Media; and a special Webby Award in 2013 for Outstanding Comedic Performance.
The show typically airs two six-episode seasons per year, with the first airing in the summer and the second debuting towards the end of the year. We'll be sure to keep you posted with news about when Season 9 will debut, so be sure to stay tuned.
