Every single damn TV series and film to have transpired since the birth of the camera is being rebooted, so I suppose this one was only a matter of time. Kelsey Grammer is reportedly looking into the possibility of rebooting Frasier for a new generation.
Unlike Will & Grace and Gilmore Girls which picked up where they left off back in the noughties, Deadline reports that the proposed new series is envisioned as a total revamp set in a new city.
It wouldn’t be a totally inconceivable concept for the character, Dr. Frasier Crane as he previously moved from Boston-set NBC hit Cheers to Seattle for the spinoff series, Frasier to start a new life as a radio host and to reconnect with his father and brother.
The publication reveals that Grammer is currently meeting with writers who are pitching different concepts for the potential followup series. If a clear vision is formed via the meetings and a writer is locked in to pen the series, the project could get the go ahead.
The OG series was created by the late David Angell, Peter Casey, and David Lee, and is one of the most iconic comedy series of the 1990s and 2000s. The show, produced by Grammer’s Grammnet Prods. and CBS TV Studios’ predecessor Paramount Network Television, ran on for an epic 11 seasons, from 1993 to 2004, and starred Grammer, David Hyde Pierce, Jane Leeves, Peri Gilpin, and the late John Mahoney.
Frasier set a record for the most Emmy Awards won by a scripted series at the time, 37, including five consecutive Emmys for Outstanding Comedy Series.
This lil Frasier fan is hoping to GOD that this reboot pans out!
