After much speculation about a Frasier reboot, it looks like the series is finally happening.
According to multiple reports, the beloved ’90s series starring Kelsey Grammer as as the titular psychiatrist-turned-radio host, is officially getting a full-on reboot series on Paramount+. It is an announcement fans have been waiting quite some time for as the streamer previously announced development of the revival in Feb. 2021, but now, the sitcom has formally been picked up for a full season, Paramount+ confirmed on October 5.
As far back as 2019, Grammer was talking about the revival of his beloved series after the original series ran for an incredible 11 seasons from 1993 to 2004.
“We’ve got it hatched. We’ve hatched the plan, what we think is the right way to go,” Grammer said to host Graham Bensinger. “We’re sort of on standby a little bit. Working out a couple of possible network deals that we’re circling. Frasier is sort of in a second position to that at this point. So there’s still stuff going on. But a revisit to Frasier, Frasier’s world is I think definitely going to come.”
Though there’s no confirmation on who Grammer’s co-stars will be, the series will focus on Dr. Crane living life in a new city, surrounded by new characters—though original cast members like David Hyde Pierce, Jane Leeves and Peri Gilpin could make guest appearances. Grammer will executive produce the series, which will be written by How I Met Your Mother‘s Chris Harris and Life in Pieces‘ Joe Cristalli.
“We’re in the final stages of the final script for the first episode of Frasier, and it looks pretty good,” Grammer shared on the July 4 episode of The Talk. “I’ve had a couple of runs through it, and I cried. So, you know, I’m happy.”
