‘Frasier’ Revival Series Officially Set for Paramount+
Frasier is officially being revived as a series on the Paramount+ streaming platform.
According to Deadline, the revival series will see Kelsey Grammer reprise the role of Frasier Crane. Not much is known about the premise of the series, except that it’ll chronicle Frasier moving to another city to start the next chapter of his life.
How the previous Frasier cast will factor into the revival isn’t known. However, it is currently reported they will likely appear but only as guest stars and not series regulars. Notably, John Mahoney, who played Frasier’s dad Martin Crane, died in 2018 at age 77. Whether the revival addresses the death is also unknown.
The original run of Frasier is one of the most successful spin-off series in television history. It aired on NBC for 11 seasons totaling 264 episodes from 1993-2004. The show won 37 Emmy Awards, with it nabbing the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series five times. Grammer won Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series four times, while co-star David Hyde Pierce won Outstanding Supporting Actor four times for his portrayal of Frasier’s brother Niles Crane.
