You can’t have Dr. Frasier Crane without Niles, Roz, and Daphne.
Rumors have circulated that Kelsey Grammer will be assuming the role of the Seattle psychiatrist once again as part of a reboot. The 63-year-old is said to be in talks with CBS to revive Frasier in a series which is likely to be set in Chicago, where the talk show host went to follow his lady love.
Speaking about the potential reboot to TheWrap, Kelsey confirmed the relocation, saying, “I don’t want to go back to Seattle.”
But what he does want back is his cast of David Hyde Pierce, Peri Gilpin, and Jane Leeves. “I let them know if there were to be such a thing, I would want them all to still be in there,” he said.
Fans of the series are hesitant for it to hit screens again as it will sadly be missing one key cast member — Jack Mahoney who played Frasier’s father, Marty, passed away earlier this year.
“TV sucks [these days],” said Kelsey. “There are not comparable comedies to what there were in the golden age. We’ve talked to a couple of writers who are working on an idea. If the writing for the revival becomes what it was previously, that would it make it interesting enough to think about it. We’re not at the stage yet.”
Let’s hope that we’ll be getting those tossed salads and scrambled eggs.
