Frasier fans, mark your calendars!
During a sit-down interview on In Depth with Graham Bensinger, Kelsey Grammer revealed details about the sitcom’s upcoming reboot, including what the show will focus on and that he expects it to hit airwaves in mid-2020.
“We’ve got it hatched. We’ve hatched the plan, what we think is the right way to go,” Grammer, 64, told host Graham Bensinger. “We’re sort of on standby a little bit. Working out a couple of possible network deals that we’re circling. Frasier is sort of in a second position to that at this point. So there’s still stuff going on. But a revisit to Frasier, Frasier’s world is I think definitely going to come.”
The actor starred as Dr. Frasier Crane on the beloved NBC series, which ran for 11 seasons, from 1993 to 2004. While Grammer didn’t reveal too much about the reboot, he did say that the series will be based in a new city and will touch on Frasier’s ongoing desire to find love.
“We’ll see how people respond to it because it’s not going to be the same place, it’s not going to be Seattle. It’s not going to be the same Frasier — it’s going to be the man in his next iteration. Hopefully that’ll be something people like watching. But I think it’ll be funny,” he said.
“It’s still his search for love, for one thing. I think that’ll always go on with Frasier. But a connection with his son,” he added.
As to when the reboot will air? Grammer said the revival should be ready next year.
“Airtime? Probably late summer next year, I would guess,” he said. “It’s ready to go. We just gotta sort of staff it and find somebody that wants to give us money for it.”
