‘Frasier’ Trailer Brings Back Kelsey Grammer in Sitcom Revival

Kelsey Grammer appears to have slipped effortlessly back into his famed sitcom character Frasier Crane in the first trailer for Paramount+’s revival of the classic NBC series.

“Fraiser is back … and he’s basically the same,” declares the trailer below, which shows the snooty shrink in the next chapter of his life as he returns to Boston and tries to improve his relationship with his son, Freddy (Jack Cutmore-Scott).

The show also stars Nicholas Lyndhurst as Frasier’s college buddy turned university professor Alan; Toks Olagundoye as Olivia, Alan’s colleague and head of the university’s psychology department; Jess Salgueiro as Freddy’s roommate Eve; and Anders Keith as Frasier’s nephew David.

The 10-episode first season will premiere with two episodes on Thursday, Oct. 12, and drop new episodes weekly. The scheduling move puts the streaming series right in the middle of the traditional broadcast network’s fall season rollout, and back on a night where it was part of NBC’s Must-See TV lineup for several seasons of its original run. CBS will also give the show a broadcast sample airing with two back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, Oct. 17. Frasier originally premiered in 1993 and ran for 11 seasons.

Paramount+ has ordered a 10-episode season, which was filmed in front of a live studio audience at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles.

The series is from writers Chris Harris (How I Met Your Mother) and Joe Cristalli (Life in Pieces), who executive produce with Grammer, Tom Russo and Jordan McMahon.

Absent from the series is actor David Hyde Pierce, who played Crane’s brother, Niles, on the original show. Jane Leeves, who played Daphne, is also not part of the revival. Bebe Neuwirth, who played Crane’s ex-wife and colleague, Dr. Lilith Sternin, and Peri Gilpin as Crane’s former radio producer, Roz, will both make guest-star returns. John Mahoney, who played Frasier and Niles’ father, Martin, died in 2018.

Frasier was the most Emmy-winning series of all time with 37 wins, until that record was beaten by HBO’s Game of Thrones in 2016. It still holds the record for most wins by a comedy series. The original series is available to stream on Paramount+.
