The Frasier revival is officially in production at Paramount Plus, with a surprising bit of news about where it will be set.
Kelsey Grammer has been shopping a Frasier revival around Hollywood for some time now, but it finally came together, and Paramount Plus has ordered the revival to series.
As of right now, Grammer is the only original cast member to have signed on to the project. The series will reportedly follow the next chapter of Fraiser’s life, which has now been revealed to take him back to Boston. This, of course, is where everyone first met the character on the series Cheers. No word as of yet if any of those characters will make appearances.
The new series will also have its own cast of characters. Joining Grammer will be Jack Cutmore-Scott as Freddy, Frasier’s son; Nicholas Lyndhurst as Alan, Frasier’s old college buddy who is now a university professor; Toks Olagundoye as Olivia, the head of the university psychology department; Jess Salguerio as Eve, Freddy’s roommate; and Anders Keith as David, Frasier’s nephew.
The original Frasier was a spinoff from Cheers and ran for 11 seasons from 1993 to 2004. In addition to Grammer, the series starred David Hyde Pierce, Jane Leeves, Peri Gilpin, and John Mahoney.
The series was nominated for 37 Emmys in total, including five consecutive wins for Outstanding Comedy Series. Grammer also won four individual awards for his performance.
No timeline for a debut has been announced as of yet. There has also been no reveal of how many episodes were ordered, but it is suspected it will be a 10-episode season.
