Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee will soon see a new slew of funny people.
The latest season of Jerry Seinfeld’s Netflix program debuts on July 19th and the sitcom star will be joined by Jamie Foxx, Seth Rogan, Eddie Murphy and others.
The 65-year-old made the announcement via his Twitter account on Tuesday: ‘I love the coffee. I love the cars. I love the comedians. And yes, doing the show with Eddie was really special.’

Ricky Gervais, Matthew Broderick, Sebastian Maniscalco, Martin Short, Mario Joyner, Melissa Villaseñor, Bridget Everett and Barry Marder are also slated.
The show follows Seinfeld driving his comedic peers around in vintage cars as they discuss a myriad of topics while enjoying a cup of joe.
Last year, Jerry responded to a lawsuit in which he is accused of stealing the idea for the Netflix show.
The lawsuit was filed by Christian Charles, who directed the first episode of the mobile talk show, and who claims that the television star stole the idea for the program.

According to TMZ, the famous comedian recently filed documents which outlines reasons he could not have stolen the show.
Seinfeld points out that he did in fact file for a copyright covering the first episode of the show.
Charles filed his own copyright 10 days later, but called the show Comedians in Cars Going for Coffee, a slightly modified title which Seinfeld says was designed to avoid filing conflicts.
The lawsuit was filed back in February by Charles, who is seeking a credit on the program, as well as money.
He alleges that he and Seinfeld shot a pilot after the funnyman was initially only lukewarm on the idea.

But after seeing the product Seinfeld’s crew were enamored with the concept, and subsequently devised a marketing strategy with a budget attached to further the intriguing idea, Charles said in court docs.
After filming of the pilot, Seinfeld was upset when Charles claimed a stake in the show and demanded payment for his creative contribution, Charles said in court docs.
Charles said in court docs that Seinfeld at that point commandeered the program – which debuted in 2012 – and left him out in the cold.
He said he’s seeking remuneration for his development of the series based on a $750,000 per episode rate he says Seinfeld is getting from the streaming service.
Since it’s debut six years ago, Seinfeld has hosted a number of comedic colleagues on the show, such as David Letterman, Jay Leno, Bill Maher, Chris Rock and Howard Stern. In 2015, he took a ride with former President Barack Obama in a special episode.
