New Frasier revival series is coming to Paramount Plus
Infant, I hear the blues a-callin’, and they’re requiring a Frasier revival.
Talks of a Frasier follow-up have actually been distributing given that 2017. Frasier’s star Kelsey Grammer spoke in theoreticals, however in 2019 he revealed that a series was possibly progressing.
“We’ll see how people respond to it because it’s not going to be in the same place. It’s not going to be in Seattle. It’s not going to be the same Frasier. It’s going to be the man in his next iteration, and hopefully that’ll be something people like watching. I think it will be funny,” Grammer stated while on In Depth With Graham Bensinger. “It’s still his search for love … I think that’ll always go on with Frasier. But [it’ll also be about] a connection with his son.”
Formerly, Grammer had actually stated he wouldn’t do a program unless all the cast members were included, which indicates David Hyde Pierce, Jane Leeves, and Peri Gilpin will likely return. (John Mahoney, who played Frasier’s daddy Martin, died in 2018).
Those who aren’t diehard Frasier-heads may not understand that the program itself is a spinoff of the extremely popular comedy Cheers. Frasier was expected to be a small character, a more intellectual, snobbish foil to boorish bartender Sam, however his character was so popular, he stayed and ultimately began his own spin-off.
Frasier the program followed Frasier the character, a psychologist with a radio program, and his similarly snobbish sibling Niles as they rubbed elbows with Seattle’s elite society — all to the humiliation of their down-to-earth daddy Martin. Gilpin played Roz, Frasier’s no-nonsense manufacturer and Leeves played Daphne, Martin’s eccentric live-in therapist. It ran for 10 seasons, involving 2003. By the time the program ended, Grammer had actually played the character for almost twenty years. The follow up series will include a minimum of another to that overall when it gets here on Paramount Plus.
The brand-new program will be headed by Chris Harris (How I Met Your Mom) and Joe Cristalli (Life in Pieces). Cristalli, by the way, has actually run a Frasier Twitter account committed to thinking of the psychiatrist in the contemporary.
