Kelsey Grammer Says the FRASIER Revival Is “Ready To Go”

FRASIER

Kelsey Grammer has given an update on the upcoming revival of Frasier that he’s been working on and he said the series is “ready to go”! As of right now, they are looking to obtain a network deal with hope for it to release in mid-2020.

Grammer recently spoke about it on In Depth with Graham Bensinger saying, “We’ve hatched the plan, what we think is the right way to go. [We’re] working on a couple of possible network deals that we’re sorting.”

The actor also said that any new episodes would focus on Frasier’s relationship with his son Frederick and his extended hunt for love. He then added, “We just have to staff it and find somebody who wants to give us money for it. You never know.”

This is exciting news I love Frasier. Grammer has been working on the show since 2018 and it’s cool that it actually looks like it will air really soon! While recently talking about it on Today, Grammer also said:

“We’re talking to some writers about it. The odds right now are probably about, um, 40/60. We’ll see. We’ve listened to a couple of takes. We have a couple of ideas that might work out. I don’t want to go back to the apartment and pretend I never left Seattle.”

He said, “Hats off to Will & Grace, but I don’t want to do that. So, we’ll see.” Grammer also explained that he wants the whole cast to come back, saying:

“I’d want everybody back. We would need to deal with that within the storytelling, but I’d want everybody back, if they want to come back. Which they seem to, thankfully.”

One major character will be missing from the series as John Mahoney, who played Frasier’s dad in the show, who sadly passed away last year. Kelsey told that this is something they would need to approach. When previously talking about that, he said:

“Of course, John Mahoney died so you’d need to replace that energy, perhaps like they did on Cheers with Coach, they found Woody, who had the same kind of sensibility.”
