'Frasier' Reboot: Release date, cast and all about the Kelsey Grammer starrer on Paramount+
‘Frasier’ was one of the most popular shows on television during the '90s and early 2000s. The series was created as a spin-off to ‘Cheers’, continuing the story of psychiatrist Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammar) as he returned to his hometown of Seattle and started building a new life as a radio advice show host while trying to reconnect with his father Martin (John Mahoney) and brother Niles (David Hyde Pierce). Apart from that, he was also trying to make new friends and meet new people to make his life more happening.
Despite getting tough competition from the likes of ‘Friends’ and ‘Seinfeld’ at that, the show went on to become one of the most-watched comedy series of that generation and won numerous accolades. The show, which ran for 11 seasons, turned out to be a huge success and won 37 Primetime Emmys throughout its run. It made a record of winning the most number of Emmys for a scripted series at the time. It also won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series for five consecutive years (1994-1998).

‘Frasier’ ended in May 2004 and it has been more than 17 years since fans have seen their favorite characters in a single frame. However, it is possible that they would be able to see Frasier and the gang once again really soon. According to the show’s lead actor, Kelsey Grammar, a reboot for the series is set to come on Paramount+ and he is talking to all the original cast members to return for it.
So, here’s everything we know about the reboot.
Release date and how to watch
There is no official date announced as of yet. But we know that the reboot will be making its way to Paramount+ in 2022. Talks for bringing the show back have been going on since 2019 as Grammar and other people attached to the project were trying to find an amazing script for the project.
Viewers can download the Paramount+ app from Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store. Apart from that, the streaming service is also available for different devices such as Android TV, Amazon Prime Video Channels, Apple TV, Apple TV channels, Chromecast, Facebook Portal, Fire TV, LG Smart TVs, PlayStation 4, Roku Players, Samsung Smart TVs and Vizio.
Although the major plotline is still under wraps, in a recent interview Grammar made some interesting revelation about where the story could be headed. According to the actor, Frasier’s son, Fredrick, would be more like Martin Crane (his grandfather) instead of Frasier. Apart from that, Frasier will be changing cities once again and ends up “being rich beyond his dreams.”
We will update the story as soon as an official announcement is made.
As far as the cast is concerned, only Kelsey Grammar has signed on for the reboot. The veteran actor has been a part of the industry for more than 40 years now and has worked on more than 100 projects. ‘Frasier’ took his popularity to a whole new level and made him a superstar and since then, he hasn’t looked back.
He has 5 Primetime Emmys, 3 Golden Globes, 1 SAG Award, and 1 Tony Award to his name.
Other original cast members such as Jane Leeves, David Hyde Pierce, and Peri Gilpin are still negotiating to join the reboot. Meanwhile, we might see some new faces on the show as well.
Paramount Network Television will be once again producing the show. It will be interesting to see if Peter Casey or David Lee would return as the showrunners for the reboot as they did for the original series.
We will update the story once the trailer drops online.
