Kelsey Grammer has provided an update on the upcoming Frasier reboot as well as the show’s cast members. The 1993 program is considered to be one of the greatest comedy series of all time and it provided a fantastic spin-off for Grammer’s Cheers’ character.
Grammer played the titular character, Frasier Crane, in the original series that ran for eleven successful seasons on NBC from 1993 to 2004. Frasier is a therapist-cum-radio talk show host who struggles to replicate his talk show’s success in his personal life.
During an interview with NJ.com, Grammer shed some light on the planned reboot and whether the upcoming series would see the return of the original ensemble members.
“We are kicking it around. We have a couple of ideas and we’re pretty happy with where we are right now. We’re not so sure if everybody’s coming back, but I know there’s a third act for Frasier. Certainly he’s got a lot of things to still explore.”
The original series also starred David Hyde Pierce as Frasier’s brother, Niles, the late John Mahoney as Frasier’s father, Martin, Jane Leeves, and Peri Gilpin. A reboot of the acclaimed show was announced earlier this year. The reboot is expected to air on Paramount+ sometime next year.
