‘Frasier’ Reboot Being Floated by Kelsey Grammer & CBS TV Studios

Frasier Revival

Kelsey Grammer, CBS TV Studios Considering a Frasier Revival

For the moment, Kelsey Grammer, who played the show's lead character, Frasier Crane, is discussing various concepts to revive the series or to reboot the show with new characters, albeit still with links to the original.

Frasier itself is a spin-off of the NBC sitcom Cheers.

With a number of classic comedy TV shows making a comeback, it seems it's open season on reviving nearly anything that was a big hit in its day.

Psychiatrist Frasier Craine already made a cross-country move once. Since it's still in the early going, if the producers-which include Grammer and the brass at CBS TV Studios-like a particular pitch and the writer that delivered it, the reboot could then move into the next stage of development.

So word that star and executive producer Kelsey Grammer is taking meetings about a potential reboot is a little disturbing.

Fraiser, which ran on NBC for 11 seasons following its premiere in September 1993, won 37 Primetime Emmy Awards and is regarded as one of the best sitcoms of the 1990s. A protean idea more than a series, the new Frasier is far from a guarantee, but seems like a natural extension of the 90s reboot wave, like the return of Captain Picard, except for oenophiles and New Yorker readers.

Grammer had previously said a new Frasier series wasn't interesting.

The show focused on the character of Dr. Frasier Crane, who left his job as a Boston therapist to work on a radio talk show in Seattle. The show starred Grammer alongside Jane Leeves, David Hyde Pierce, Peri Gilpin, and John Mahoney.
