It looks like Frasier could be the latest comedy for a revival, of sorts at least, with Deadline reporting that star and executive producer Kelsey Grammer is looking to put together a reboot of the Emmy Award-winning series.
Unlike the likes of Will & Grace and Roseanne, the new project is said to be envisioned as a reboot and would potentially see Grammer’s psychiatrist Frasier Crane setting up in a new city.
According to the report, Grammer is currently meeting with writers who are pitching him different concepts for the potential follow-up series. Assuming the producers settle on a premise and writer, the project would then move into the development stage.
A spinoff of the classic NBC sitcom Cheers, Frasier ran for eleven seasons between 1993 and 2004, during which time it won five consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Comedy Series, as well as setting a then-record 37 Emmy wins in total.
In addition to Grammer, the original Frasier starred David Hyde Pierce, Jane Leeves, Peri Gilpin, and the late John Mahoney.
