The classic comedy will return on the new streaming service.
February 24, 2021
In unveiling its future lineup today, Paramount+ announced that Frasier is being revived for a new run on the streaming service. The move brings back to TV one of the most successful and acclaimed comedies of all time.
Kelsey Grammar will be reprising his iconic role as the titular Frasier Crane, a Harvard-trained psychiatrist who moved back to his hometown of Seattle after his marriage ended in Boston. The original Frasier aired for 11 seasons, but the character first started out in the 1980s comedy Cheers before being spun off in 1993.
Also bringing back Frasier, one of the most highly acclaimed, most successful comedy series of all time. The revival will have everything you love about the original: coziness, great writing, and of course, a cast led by @KelseyGrammer. #ParamountPlus pic.twitter.com/cZKAOtw6WF— Paramount+ (@paramountplus) February 24, 2021
"Frasier" is one of the all-time great sitcoms. The past year I have been slowly going through all the seasons and almost every episode gives me a lot of laughs. That's rare with today's sitcoms. But I don't want these happy memories tarnished by a feeble attempt to recapture old glories.
As for the absence of John Mahoney, while no one can replace him, there is a fitting fix for it: simply have Wendy Malick (whose character, Ronee, Martin Crane married in the series finale) return as Martin's widow and the Crane boys' stepmother. Malick is an excellent actress and her character's mannerisms would be a great addition to the show.
These people are making hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars a year and THIS is the best they can think to do? It's like 20 years after being divorced, your'e lonely so you remarry the ex-spouse you haven't seen in 20 years and you were tired of at the time.. just so you have SOMETHING to cling to.
This is pathetic.. no matter how the show is written, or what the new casting may be. Is ANYONE clamoring to see Kelsey Grammer on tv again? I simply hope (and this is harsh) the continuation takes place in Grammer's nursing home (what's he 70 now?) and he contracts COVID. So, at most,, 1 season to the funeral.
For heaven's sake .... age people out already. Boomers are just clinging to ANYTHING that they think makes them sill relevant. Watching septuagenarians or octogenarians in a sitcom where they seem to miraculously forget their actual age is just sad.
Yeah they just use the word "woke" to hide their true intent to spread right wing extremism. If you see "snowflake","woke","liberal", or "leftist" in a post it is either an extremist angry that the last 4 years of hate are being dismantled after free and fair elections brought back compassion and understanding to the world, or a troll. Want proof just look At the posts replying to this.
Either way just ignore them.
@Susan, if companies renewed television programs based on $$$ then explain the BBC and Doctor Who or any program on the CW.
