Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee returns for a 10th season tomorrow, July 6, on Netflix.

This season’s lineup includes the late Jerry Lewis, Kate McKinnon, Ellen DeGeneres, Hasan Minhaj, Dana Carvey, Neil Brennan, Tracy Morgan, Brian Regan, Alec Baldwin, Zach Galifinakis, John Mulaney, and Dave Chappelle.

The show, which launched on free streamer Crackle in 2012, features Seinfeld chauffeuring a celebrity, usually a comic or comedic actor, in a vintage car to a local eatery for a cup of Joe and a casual conversation about show business and the vagaries of life. The entire series moved in 2017 to subscription streamer Netflix.

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee made headlines recently when it was revealed that the pilot episode’s producer, Christian Charles, filed a lawsuit in February claiming that it was he, not Seinfeld who originated the concept. Seinfeld is arguing that Charles sued only after learning how lucrative the Netflix arrangement was. Charles is seeking both credit and financial compensation.

You can watch the new 12-episode season, and the previous nine seasons, with a Netflix subscription.
