Kelsey Grammer played the lead and titular role in the sitcom “Frasier” between 1993 and 2004. The show was a spinoff from another popular sitcom, “Cheers,” where he made frequent visits to the Boston bar of the same name. Rumours have been flying around that “Frasier” is going to get a reboot and Grammer addressed the rumours at the 2018 Television Critics Association by saying ideas for the reboot are currently in the early stages.

As noted by the Radio Times, Grammer did say that he would only return to “Frasier” if it will be a good show and if the material would warrant his return.

Kelsey Grammer told reporters that producers would have to ensure it would be a great show and that if they don’t hear a suitable pitch, it most likely won’t happen.

Possible reboot of popular sitcom ‘Frasier’

The hit sitcom drew a huge following across the world via re-runs, but in the USA its initial run drew 25 million viewers. The show was created by Peter Casey, David Angeli and David Lee and ran for an impressive 11 seasons, winning 37 Emmys along the way. The finale episode of the final season showed the lead character, Frasier, leaving Seattle to move to Chicago.

The Guardian interviewed Grammer about the possible reboot and he told them he was trying to decide what relationship would anchor the show.

Regrettably John Mahoney, his on-screen father – who played a vital role in the series – had passed away in February 2018. His dog, another popular character in the show, named Eddie, passed away in June 2010.

Frasier Crane and ‘Cheers’

Before starring in the spin-off show, Grammer starred as the titular character Dr Frasier Crane in “Cheers,” which was set in Boston and had a long-running, play on NBC between 1982 and 1993.

Grammer told reporters that with “Frasier” also having a great following and long run on TV, the idea of a reboot had “crossed peoples’ minds.”

Grammer is currently starring in the television show “Proven Innocent,” so he doesn’t appear to be slowing down along the way. However, he shared a little wisdom that he has learned during his life, telling people to slow down, not worry about things so much.

He said to trust in God.

The actor lost his sister, who was murdered at the age of 18 in 1975. He said at the time he lost his faith and experienced a difficult time following her death. However, in the back of his mind, he remembered something an old friend had said. That friend said he fell to his knees and cried out to God and received an answer.
