Paramount+ released a teaser for the revival of the hit comedy series ‘Frasier’. The original ‘Frasier’ series was a spin-off from hit comedy Cheers, with Kelsey Grammer’s psychiatrist Frasier Crane moving to Seattle to be with his family and host a radio call-in program. In the revival series, Frasier moves back to Boston.
The teaser features a new animated rendition of the Frasier opening with the “Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs” theme song along with the text: “No more callers. All new hang ups. Oh, what fresh start is this?” Additionally, instead of the traditional closing, “Frasier has left the building,” the theme now sings, “Fraser has re-entered the building.”
The ‘Frasier’ revival is a sequel of sorts, featuring a 10-episode season. The revival “follows Frasier Crane in the next chapter of his life as he returns to Boston with new challenges to face, new relationships to forge and an old dream or two to finally fulfill.” Jack Cutmore-Scott plays Frasier’s now adult son, Freddy, with Bebe Neuwirth confirmed to reprise her role as Frasier’s ex-wife, Lilith, as well as Peri Gilpin reprising her role as Frasier’s producer, Roz, in guest appearances. Toks Olagundoye, Jess Salgueiro and Anders Keith have also joined the cast. David Hyde Pierce, who played Frasier’s brother, Niles, will not be returning (on the reboot, Niles presumably still lives in Seattle); and actor John Mahoney, who played Frasier and Niles’ father, passed away in 2018.
The revival will premiere October 12 in the U.S. and Canada with a pair of episodes over Paramount+, with new episodes then dropping weekly on Thursdays thereafter. In addition, CBS is broadcasting the first two episodes back to back on October 17 . Check out the teaser for the revival series – here.
