Jerry Seinfeld is picking up some major stars -- including Eddie Murphy -- in the new season of "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee."

Murphy, who hasn't done standup in years, is listed on Seinfeld's Instagram announcement, along with Seth Rogen, Ricky Gervais, Matthew Broderick, Jamie Foxx, Sebastian Maniscalco, Martin Short, Mario Joyner, Melissa Villaseñor, Bridget Everett and Barry Marder.

"I love the coffee. ⁣I love the cars. ⁣I love the comedians. ⁣And yes, doing the show with Eddie was really special," Seinfeld wrote.

The concept is simple, Seinfeld drives his guest around in a car he thinks suits their personality, they stop for coffee and talk about life.

The new season begins July 19 on Netflix.

The series previously ran on Crackle for nine seasons before Netflix acquired the show in 2017. Previous guests have included Amy Schumer, Jimmy Fallon, Sarah Jessica Parker, Tina Fey, Patton Oswalt and more.
