Kelsey Grammer is back as the snooty psychiatrist Frasier Crane in the upcoming Frasier revival. After several talks, Paramount+ finally greenlights the return of the classic comedy.
Paramount+ reportedly orders a Frasier revival that will continue the story of Frasier after leaving Seattle. From the other returning original cast to the show's storyline, here's everything you need to know.
Frasier Revival's Behind-the-Scenes Works
The talks about the show's revival started in February 2021. At the time, Grammer himself confirmed the news.
Aside from reprising his role, he will also executive produce the revival series, with the scripts by How I Met Your Mother's Chris Harris and Life in Pieces' Joe Cristalli. Though it's not confirmed yet, Deadline noted the show might have 10 episodes.
So, what will happen this time?
Frasier Revival's Storyline, Returning Characters, Premiere Episode Details
Compared to the original series, which ran from 1993 to 2004, Frasier won't be with his family and friends this time.
He will be moving to a new city as he's about to start a new life, surrounded by new cast members.
This just means the original cast of David Hyde Pierce (Niles), Jane Leeves (Daphne), and Peri Gilpin (Roz) will not be series regulars. However, they can still make their guest appearances on the show.

In fact, Grammer told NBC 4 last summer that he had "reached out to everybody" about returning to the show in "some capacity."
In July, Grammer also revealed that Frasier Revival's premiere episode was already in "the final stages of the final script."
"It looks pretty good," he teased. "[Frasier] thinks he's gonna go off and do one thing, and sure enough, his life takes him in another direction — and he ends up rich beyond his dreams."
The Original Frasier Recap
Frasier's character originally came from the 1980s sitcom Cheers. With the character's fame, he had his own NBC spinoff that ran for 11 seasons and won five Emmys for Best Comedy Series.
The show ended with Niles and Daphne welcoming their first child, while Martin (the late John Mahoney) moved out from his son's bachelor pad after his wedding.
It then showed Frasier leaving Seattle to move to San Franchise and pursue new opportunities. However, he landed in Chicago instead to pursue his romance with his girlfriend, Charlotte (Laura Linney).
