We’ve gotten to the stage in our culture where we’re pumping out a reboot/revival of what was itself a spin-off series, but if it has to be any IP, at least it’s Frasier.

Almost 20 years after the sitcom concluded its 11-season run — and close to 40 years since Kelsey Grammer first appeared as the titular psychiatrist in the opening episode of Cheers season 3 — Paramount+ is taking Frasier Crane back to Boston where it all began.

This forthcoming sequel of sorts will follow Grammer’s Frasier, “in the next chapter of his life as he returns to Boston, Massachusetts, with new challenges to face, new relationships to forge, and an old dream or two to finally fulfil.”

“New” really does seem to be the running theme here, considering the fresh setting (a university campus where Frasier appears to be teaching) and a concerning lack of original cast members — outside of recurring appearances from Bebe Neuwirth as Frasier’s ex-wife Lilith Sternin; and Peri Gilpin as the one and only Roz Doyle.

Other cast members include Nicholas Lyndhurst as Alan Cornwall, Frasier’s college friend who is now a professor; Jack Cutmore-Scott as Frederick “Freddy” Crane, Frasier’s son; Anders Keith as David Crane, Frasier’s nephew (son of David Hyde Pierce’s Niles and Jane Leeves’ Daphne); Jess Salgueiro as Eve, Freddy’s roommate; and Toks Olagundoye as Olivia, head of an Ivy League university psych department.

Well, at least that iconic theme song has remained the same.

Paramount+’s Frasier revival is scheduled to premiere on October 12th — watch the trailer above.
