Frasier reboot in the works


First, it was Full House. Then it was Will & Grace. Now, another beloved ‘90s sitcom may be making its triumphant return to television with Frasier.

On the heels of other successful ‘90s sitcom reboots, Frasier might be next.

According to Deadline, Kelsey Grammer, who starred and executive produced the hit Emmy-winning series is shopping the idea around. This would be a true reboot, likely placing Frasier in a brand-new city. The original series aired from 1993 to 2004.

It makes sense that Grammer wants to try to bring his most famous character back to life now. Full(er) House, Will & Grace, and Rosanne have experienced huge success and acclaim since rebooting over the past several years. And Murphy Brown is set to come back this fall. (Note: Although Rosanne was canceled after the racial slur controversy a few months ago, The Conners will debut this fall without Rosanne Barr at the helm.)

For those of you who didn’t watch Frasier or were too young to understand the sophisticated humor that came with the show, here’s a little refresher.

Frasier Crane, a psychiatrist who first appeared on the Boston-set Cheers, moved across the country to Seattle for his own spinoff after Cheers ended in 1993. He had his own radio talk show with the help of his producer (Peri Gilpin) and lived with his gruff father (the late John Mahoney), uppity brother (David Hyde Pierce), British housekeeper (Jane Leeves), and adorable dog, Eddie.

Frasier won more Emmy Awards than any other scripted series at the time with 37. This includes five Outstanding Comedy Series honors from 1994 – 1998. Altogether, Grammer played Frasier Crane for 22 years on television. I think he can ease right back into the role.

Deadline reports that the possible series is only in planning stages, with Grammer meeting with writers who are pitching potential concepts. Once an idea is decided on, they can move forward. However, Grammer nor CBS TV Studios have commented.
