Paramount+ Has Shown Green Light To ‘Frasier’ Reboot

Paramount+ Has Shown Green Light To ‘Frasier’ Reboot

In the last few weeks, Paramount released a statement announcing that they have green-lit the production of a reboot of their hit TV show ‘Frasier’. After an extensive period of development following its cancellation in 2004, it has now been confirmed that Frasier will be heading back to television screens for the first time in over half a decade. However, unlike most reboots and revivals, this comeback will not see either Clive Owen or Hugh Laurie returning as regulars alongside Grammer who is set to reprise his role as Dr. Frasier Crane. Instead, the series’ original ensemble of stars will be returning to reprise their roles for the reboot. This includes John Mahoney who played Frasier’s dad Martin, Jane Leeves as Daphne’s wife Niles, Peri Gilpin playing Roz on the show, and Kelsey Grammer himself hosting an episode. But it appears that even with a new leading man in front of a new audience, Paramount understands that all too well-loved parts of the original series may need to be tweaked or even changed if they are going to succeed.
