What is the Frasier revival about?
And if you’re curious about what our favorite radio psychiatrist is up to, the show’s synopsis hints at Frasier Crane’s new chapter. He’s back in Boston, navigating life with its twists and turns, forging new connections, and chasing some long-overdue dreams. As the announcement cheerfully notes, “Frasier has re-entered the building!”
Cast: who stars in the Frasier reboot?
The cast list has some familiar and new faces. Apart from the legendary Kelsey Grammer reprising his role, we’ve got Jack Cutmore-Scott playing Frasier’s son Freddy; Nicholas Lyndhurst as Alan, an old college mate; Toks Olagundoye portraying Olivia, the head of the psychology department; Jess Salgueiro as Eve, Freddy’s roommate; and Anders Keith stepping into the shoes of Frasier’s nephew David.
Which cast members are returning?
Beloved “Frasier” alumni, Peri Gilpin and Bebe Neuwirth, are making a comeback. Gilpin returns as Roz, the dynamic radio station producer, while Neuwirth will re-embody Lilith, Frasier’s ex-wife and Freddy’s mother. Both are slated for at least one episode appearance. Yet, a notable absence will be David Hyde Pierce, the four-time Emmy winner for his portrayal as Niles, who has chosen not to rejoin the cast.
Addressing his decision in June 2022, Pierce explained, “That whole time of my life [doing Frasier] is deeply important to me. And I would never disrespect that in such a way as to say just offhandedly, ‘Oh, no, thanks. I’m not going to do that again.’ It’s too valuable to me. But by the same token, because it’s so valuable to me, I also wouldn’t do it just to do it. And I believe it can be done without me, too — finding new stories to tell, in the same way that Frasier did after Cheers.”
Who is behind the reboot?
Behind the scenes, Grammer wears multiple hats, not just as the lead actor but also as an executive producer. He’s joined by Chris Harris and Joe Cristalli who are pulling double duty as writers and executive producers. The team also includes Grammnet NH Productions’ Tom Russo and Jordan McMahon. The first two episodes come to life under the directorial mastery of James Burrows. The series, a brainchild of CBS Studios and Grammnet NH Productions, will be globally distributed by Paramount Global Content Distribution.
