Jerry Seinfeld will be back in the driver’s seat and on your screens in July, as a new season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee returns to Netflix. The 11th season premieres on July 19 with a handful of stars making appearances alongside the car-loving, caffeinated comedian. In seasons past, the number of guests has varied between five and 12, but it’s somewhat perfect that this season stars 11 familiar (and maybe unfamiliar) faces.


The guest list

First on the docket is Eddie Murphy, who most people know as Donkey from Shrek. Oh wait, sorry. I meant Mushu from Mulan. He’s done other work? Alright. Other comedic guests include Seth Rogen (insert weed joke here), Sebastian Maniscalco (who appeared on season seven), Jamie Foxx, Martin Short, Mario Joyner, Bridget Everett, and Barry Marder. Ricky Gervais will also appear on the show.

But two of the most anticipated guests for me, personally, are Matthew Broderick and SNL cast member Melissa Villaseñor. Broderick’s wife, Sarah Jessica Parker, starred in season four, in quite possibly my all-time favorite episode of CICGC. In the episode, called “A Little Hyper-Aware,” SJP hilariously rambles on about the nostalgia of the 1976 station wagon she recently purchased and emphatically emphasizes rye BREAD while Seinfeld looks at her with concerned interest. I’m hoping Broderick will be driving the same vehicle or that Jerry will at least bring up SJP in conversation over some java.

Melissa Villaseñor became a familiar face when she appeared on season six of America’s Got Talent, doing stand-up comedy. But she arguably got her claim to fame because of the now defunct app, Vine, when she posted an on-the-nose impression of Owen Wilson (pun intended). Before getting cast on the 42nd season of Saturday Night Live, Villaseñor also did voice work on animated shows like Adventure Time and Family Guy.


But what about the cars?

There’s no telling what classic, or maybe even modern, cars will make appearances on the show this season. From the looks of the screenshots on Twitter (posted by the guests), there’s a wide range of vehicles that Seinfeld will be cruising in, and even some scooters are included. In seasons past, Jimmy Fallon drove a 1956 Chevy Corvette and human moustache Steve Harvey drove a 1957 Chevy Bel Air, so maybe we’ll get another classic Chevrolet this season!
