“Hey baby, I hear the blues a-callin’,
Tossed salad and scrambled eggs.
And maybe I seem a bit confused,
Yeah maybe, but I got you PEGGED!
Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha!”
Camile Grammar from Real Housewives’ ex-husband Kelsey Grammar has a reboot for his iconic 90s-set show FRASIER coming out on Paramount+.
Paramount LOVES rebooting old shit. What’s Dr. Frasier Crane gonna do in the new era of podcasts and PC culture!? We will have to find out:
So far, Kelsey Grammer is the only character from the original series of Frasier that is returning for the reboot.
It’s been reported that the remainder of the regular cast will be made up of entirely new characters.
Amazingly, Only Fools and Horses legend Nicholas Lyndhurst has been announced to joining the cast as an old college mate of Frasier’s.
Fellow British actor Jack Cutmore-Scott will play Frasier’s estranged son Frederick.
The original cast – David Hyde Pierce’s Niles, Jane Leeves’ Daphne and Peri Gilpin’s Roz – aren’t expected to be regulars, but will reportedly make cameo appearances throughout the series.
John Mahoney – who played Frasier and Niles’ father Martin – died in 2018, and Moose the dog who played Eddie – his pet Jack Russell – died in 2006.
In a 2022 interview, David Hyde Pierce suggested he didn’t know too much about the upcoming revival, saying: “It’s happening, but I don’t know in what form, and I don’t know when, so I don’t know where I’ll be and what I’ll be doing. I’m certainly interested to see what they come up with.”
Grammer later confirmed that Hyde Pierce would not being reprising his role as Niles in the revival series.
“David basically decided he wasn’t really interested in repeating the performance of Niles,” after initial discussions took place.
It’s likely that the original cast will only appear as cameos due to other work commitments, with Jane Leeves commenting: “I have no idea, but I won’t be leaving The Resident to do that if it happens” when asked if she’d be making a comeback as Daphne Moon.
