Grammer will star in and executive produce the multicam comedy
The “Frasier” sequel is officially a go, TheWrap has learned. Kelsey Grammer will return to his signature sitcom character as well as executive produce the series at Paramount+, which just greenlit the multicam comedy.
The creative plan for the series follows Frasier Crane’s next chapter in a different city. Former cast are not expected to be series regulars but could end up appearing in guest roles. Additionally, no casting has been set as the writers room has yet to open.
The sequel’s premise follows a similar setup to the original, which was in and of itself a spinoff of NBC’s hit “Cheers.” In “Frasier,” a psychiatrist (Grammer), moved back to his native Seattle from Boston (where “Cheers” was set). The ’90s series, which won more than three dozen Emmys, also starred Jane Leeves, David Hyde Pierce, Peri Gilpin and John Mahoney, as well as featured “Cheers” alum.
From CBS Studios, in association with Grammer’s Grammnet NH Productions, Chris Harris and Joe Cristalli are writing and will executive produce with Tom Russo and Jordan McMahon also serving as executive producers.
Deadline first reported the news.
