Frasier reboot under discussion
Kelsey Grammer is listening to pitches from writers for ways to reboot or continue hit sitcom.
Kelsey Grammer is exploring the possibility of a reboot of Frasier, but the possibility is still in very early stages.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Grammer is listening to pitches from writers for ways to reboot or continue the show. Whether it’s a straight revival, a la Will & Grace and Murphy Brown, or more of a reboot with new characters but some link to the original show, remains to be seen. Importantly, it notes, it’s not much more than an idea being thrown around at the moment.
The series was itself a spin-off of Cheers, airing for 11 seasons from 1993-2004. It ended with Frasier leaving Seattle for Chicago, where he had followed his girlfriend, Charlotte (Laura Linney), in the hope of reuniting with her.
Actor John Mahoney, who played dad played Martin Crane, died in February aged 77.
