He’s Still Listening: Frasier Is Getting a Paramount+ Revival

Finally, the perfect excuse to bust out the sherry while reclining in a hideous chair. After years of Kelsey Grammer being pissed off at writers for their terrible Frasier

revival ideas, Deadline reports that the sitcom will indeed return for a new season of refined shenanigans. The multi-cam has been officially green-lit to series at Paramount+ as

of October 4, though the streamer has not confirmed how many episodes will comprise the first season of this long-awaited revival. Chris Harris and Joe Cristalli (best known for

their work in How I Met Your Mother and Life in Pieces, respectively) will lead the writing team. As was originally reported in 2021, Grammer will, of course, reprise his

role as the legendarily erudite radio host, although it seem like co-stars David Hyde Pierce, Jane Leeves, and Peri Gilpin will not be joining him. (John Mahoney, who portrayed

the Crane patriarch, Martin, died in 2019.) Grammer has said in the past that he would refuse to do a Frasier revival unless Hyde Pierce, Leeves, and Gilpin were all involved, and

he would want to see the “next iteration” of his character “looking for love in a new city.” Since then, Grammer has confirmed that the series will take place in a “new city” that

isn’t Seattle.
