Kelsey Grammer reportedly toying with ideas for a ‘Frasier’ reboot
Frasier Crane may be getting his radio show back.
Kelsey Grammer is plotting to bring back the ’90s classic “Frasier,” Deadline reported.
The original show, a spinoff of “Cheers,” ran for 11 seasons from 1993 to 2004, starring Grammer, David Hyde Pierce, Jane Leeves, Peri Gilpin and the late John Mahoney. “Frasier” picked up 37 Emmy Awards along the way, including five consecutive awards for outstanding comedy series.
The possible reboot is expected to see Frasier in a new city, which could play into the finale, which saw the title character leave Seattle for Chicago to follow girlfriend Charlotte (Laura Linney).
“Cheers” would be the latest in a lengthy list of rebooted ’90s shows, including “Murphy Brown,” “Roseanne” and “Will & Grace.”
Grammer is talking to writers with pitches for the reboot, according to Deadline.
He’s currently on board the upcoming Fox legal drama “Proven Innocent,” which is set to premiere next year.
