Jerry Seinfeld, who recently hinted at his new collaboration with Larry David (at the time believed to be some kind of play), is now teasing an upcoming Seinfeld reunion. According to Variety, he told a radio show that his recent visit to Tom’s Restaurant, the gang’s on-screen hangout, with Jason Alexander was more than just a trip down memory lane—Alexander was in character as George Costanza, Seinfeld said, confirming a reunion project.

“He described the project as “short-ish form,” a “one-and-done” thing involving Larry David in some way that will be made available “very, very soon,” Variety reports.

Given the timing, some people are saying it’s a Super Bowl commercial, but Seinfeld is cagily denying it. Asked by the radio hosts if the two former cast mates were filming either an episode of Seinfeld’s new web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, or a Super Bowl ad, Seinfeld said no, then added it’s “not not those things either.”

You’re killing us, Jerry.
