Kelsey Grammer’s Frasier Sequel Series Is Officially Happening at Paramount+



The long-gestating Frasier revival is finally a go at Paramount+. After several years of planning and many false starts, Deadline reports that a Frasier sequel series is finally and officially happening at the streaming platform Paramount+. Kelsey Grammer will be back to reprise his lead role as the titular radio host and psychologist, as he will be starring in the series in addition to executive producing. The series was announced as an in-development project at the Paramount+ launch event in February 2021, but it wasn’t until now that it’s formally been ordered to series.

Very few details have been revealed about the new Frasier series, and it’s not yet clear if it will be given a new title to differentiate it from the previous version of the show. What’s known is that it will be given an entirely new setting as Grammer’s Frasier Crane has departed Seattle for an unnamed new city. The new setting means that only Grammer will be the only star from the original series to be a lead actor in the revival, though other cast members could still potentially come in for guest appearances.

The revival series is from writers Chris Harris (How I Met Your Mother) and Joe Cristalli (Life In Pieces). Grammer, Harris, and Cristalli also executive produce with Tom Russo and Jordan McMahon. CBS Studios is producing in association with Grammer’s Grammnet NH Productions.

The original Frasier, a Cheers spinoff, is one of television history’s most successful sitcoms. With nearly 40 Emmy Award wins, the series was a smash hit during its 11-season run from 1993 to 2004. Created by David Angell, Peter Casey, and David Lee, the sitcom starred Grammer as Frasier alongside David Hyde Pierce as Niles, Jane Leeves as Daphne, Peri Gilpin as Roz, John Mahoney as Martin, and let’s not forget Moose the dog as Eddie.

Kelsey Grammer Has Been Waiting Years For This Moment

Because Kelsey Grammer has been talking about this project for years, many fans were probably starting to doubt that it would ever really happen. At one point, there were reports that Grammer was working on wooing back as many original cast members as possible. Last year, Grammer shared some details about the plan for the revival in an interview suggesting that the story picks up with Dr. Crane becoming incredibly wealthy.

“He thinks he’s gonna go off and do one thing, and sure enough, his life takes him in another direction. And he ends up rich beyond his dreams,” Grammer teased.

In July of this year, Grammer gave a very promising update on the revival’s progress. Appearing on The Talk, the actor suggested that cameras may start rolling as soon as October. With the series now officially greenlit, Grammer’s prediction does not seem to have been too far off.

“Shooting? There were some conversations about October, maybe a little later,” Grammer said. “There are a couple of other things coming up. We’ve developed a couple of other projects that look like they’re going to shoot first.”

The Frasier revival does not yet have a premiere date set at Paramount+.
