Seinfeld fans rejoice! Hulu will begin streaming all 180 episodes of the iconic New York show starting June 24th.

The series comes to Hulu, owned by Comcast, 21st Century Fox and Walt Disney, in a new deal with Sony Pictures Television. According to Variety, the deal is said to be about $875,000 an episode, which is nearly $160 million payout to be divided among distributor Sony TV, Time Warner’s Castle Rock and “Seinfeld” profit participants, including star/co-creator Jerry Seinfeld and co-creator Larry David.

In honor of the exclusive deal, Hulu has created a replica of Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment. Seinfeld’s private collection of memorabilia from the show will be on display at the iconic 5A unit. Fans of the legendary comedy will be able to recreate their favorite scenes from the show.

Several classic scenes will be featured such as George Costanza’s Valentine’s Day photo shoot. Visitors will be able to channel their inner George and finesse the perfect pose for their own photo shoot in apt. 5A. You’ll also be able to make your grand Kramer entrance into the apartment, as the doorway has been designed to mirror the original 5A.

There are a number special items guests will have the chance to see in real-time as well as a wall of special guests’ signatures.

While the replica apartment is not at 129 West 81st Street, you’ll still have a grand time reliving one of the 90’s hit comedies. The renowned 5A unit is located at 451 West 14th Street, in the trendy Meatpacking District, near the High Line. Visitors may arrive between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. It will be open from Wednesday, June 24 to Sunday, June 28. This venue is free to the public.

We suggest you arrive early, as there will be a very long line of Seinfeld aficionados. Perhaps you’ll run into one of the many notable actors who appeared on the comedy show.
