Written by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld and starring Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Michael Richards, Jason Alexander and Wayne Knight, the critically acclaimed '90s sitcom aired on NBC from 1989 to 1998.

Given its enormous success, it's no surprise each cast member walked away with a hefty paycheck after nine seasons. However, the total net worth of each star 20 years after the series ended may come as a shock.

CNBC analyzed scripts and calculated Jerry Seinfeld made a whopping $13,000 per line by the final season. He was grossing approximately $1 million an episode with his sidekicks Elaine, George and Kramer not far behind, averaging $600,000 an episode each.
