So far, details around the secret Seinfeld project have been vague at best: we know that Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander and Larry David were all spotted loitering around Tom's Restaurant on the Upper West Side. We know Alexander is playing George Costanza, and multiple other characters from the show are involved. But that's basically it—we're not sure if it's a Super Bowl commercial or an internet one-off or a new episode of The Merv Griffin Show. But Alexander threw a little bit of cold water on all the excitement today via Twitter:

Seinfeld, who let a few details about the project slip on WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show this week, was the one who called it a Seinfeld reunion; he also said it is "a short-ish form" film, he thinks this is a one-off project, and we'll see it "very very soon." His wife doubled down on that last bit today:

So are we setting ourselves up for a huge disappointment? Is this like that time Jerry thinks he's dating a Chinese woman but she actually just changed her name from Changstein to Chang? Is this the best we're going to get? It's all seeming more and more likely, unfortunately. Hope may spring eternal, but as Costanza once said, "I don't want hope. Hope is killing me. My dream is to become hopeless."

So we will now become hopeless, and maybe we'll be pleasantly surprise. Either way, it doesn't matter, since we've already gotten the best Seinfeld reunion we could ever hope for:
