Is Frasier coming back? Deadline reports Kelsey Grammer has an idea on how to revive the NBC TV show.
A spin-off of Cheers, the sitcom stars Grammer as Dr. Frasier Crane, a single Seattle-based radio show host/psychologist. His ex-cop father, Martin (John Mahoney), lives with him, as does Martin’s dog Eddie (Moose) and Martin’s physical therapist, Daphne (Jane Leeves). Frasier’s younger brother Niles (David Hyde Pierce) and radio show producer Roz (Peri Gilpin) round out the group. The show ran on NBC for 11 seasons before ending in 2004.
During a recent panel commemorating the 25th anniversary of Frasier, Grammer revealed he wants to revive the NBC sitcom if a good idea comes along:
There has been some discussions; nothing is planned; There is nothing set in stone. In my own personal approach to what I’ve discussed with other people is that I wouldn’t want to do it without these guys.”
Mahoney passed away in February of this year.
