Back in July it was reported that Kelsey Grammer was exploring a potential revival of the Emmy Award-winning comedy series Frasier, with the actor revealing the following month that the potential project was in its earliest stages, and “all talk at this point”.
Appearing at a 25th anniversary panel for the show at the USC Comedy Festival, Grammer – who was joined by co-stars David Hyde Pierce, Jane Leeves, and Peri Gilpin – revealed that while he’s been meeting with writers, he’s yet to settle on a premise “that has the necessary fire” to move ahead.
However, he did go on to confirm that whatever the premise, he “wouldn’t want to do it” without his fellow cast members, and that the idea would be to find something which offered “a new life with a new continuation for all of them but that they’re still together… Whatever happens, in my mind, should be that [Frasier] sorted out something that he hadn’t had sorted out previously. That would be the stepping point, so we’ll see.”
Are you excited about the prospect of catching up with Frasier, Niles, Daphne and Roz some 14 years on from the end of the original series? Let us know in the comments below…
