Get ready to toss your salad and scramble your eggs, because Frasier Crane – sorry, “Dr.” Crane – is coming back to town.
Kelsey Grammer reprises his role as the famous Seattle radio psychiatrist in Paramount+’s reboot of “Frasier,” premiering on the streamer on October 12 with the first two episodes.
A The teaser for the new series was released today and features the 68-year-old “X-Men: The Last Stand” reprising the role of his long-standing character.
Grammer played Frasier in the hit film NBC sitcom “Cheers” from 1984 to 1993.
He then had his own spin-off show of the same name, which aired on the network from 1993 to 2004.
And almost 20 years later, the stiff and pretentious Dr. Crane back in Boston.
However, a lot has changed in recent years.
“The new series follows Frasier Crane (Grammer) in the next chapter of his life as him returns to Boston with new challenges to overcome, new relationships to form, and one or two old dreams to finally fulfill,” says the official summary. “Frasier has re-entered the building!”
The cast of the upcoming sitcom includes Jack Cutmore-Scott as Frasier’s son Freddy, Nicholas Lyndhurst as Frasier’s old college friend Alan, Toks Olagundoye as Olivia, Jess Salgueiro as Freddy’s roommate and Anders Keith as David, Frasier’s nephew.
OG “Cheers” star Bebe Neuwirth also appears in an episode as Frasier’s ex-wife Dr. Lilith Sternin makes a guest appearance and Peri Gilpin returns as Frasier’s sidekick Roz Doyle.
There are also several other original cast members from the main series who will not be joining Fraiser on his brand new adventure in Massachusetts.
John Mahoney – who played Frasier’s father Martin Crane – died in 2018. David Hyde Pierce, who played Frasier’s uptight brother Niles Crane, will not go to the reboot show.
The trailer begins with Frasier speaking cockily to his friends at a bar and of course drink a beer like you used to at Cheers.
There is also a tense meeting between Freddy and the psychiatrist, with the young man seemingly shocked and confused by his father’s sudden arrival.
Frasier then laments to his friends that he feels distant from his only child and that he lives with a girlfriend he has never met.
The original show’s iconic theme song also plays in the background as scenes from the revival roll by.
“Frasier is back – and he’s basically the same,” the teaser joked.
The “Frasier” revival will consist of 10 episodes.
