Published Feb 01, 2021Kelsey Grammer's dreams of rebooting Frasier could soon be a reality, following several years of rumours about its return.
According to Variety, a new run of the series is reportedly being discussed at Paramount Plus (formerly CBS All Access), though the streamer has declined to officially comment on the matter. TV Line reports that if the series is greenlit, it could begin shooting as early as this summer.
The buzz around a possible reboot began back in 2018, when Grammer began meeting with writers about a follow-up to the classic comedy series. According to reports at the time, the new series would likely be set in a different city and would feature a new cast, with Grammer standing in as the "main tie" to the original, reprising his role as Dr. Frasier Crane.
The popular series — created by David Angell, Peter Casey and David Lee — originally ran from 1993 to 2004. Grammer starred alongside David Hyde, Jane Leeves, Peri Gilpin and the late John Mahoney. Frasier also served as a vessel for its own iconic theme song "Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs," which was sung by Grammer himself.
During its run, Frasier won 37 Emmy Awards, setting a record for a scripted series at that time.
