TV series 'Frasier' latest '90s hit to get a revival

The hit 1990s TV comedy series "Frasier," starring Kelsey Grammer as a snobbish radio advice-show host, is coming back to television.
Grammer said on Wednesday he would reprise his role in the revival that will focus on "the next chapter in the continuing journey of Dr Frasier Crane."
No further details were given.
"Frasier," a spin-off from the TV series "Cheers," was one of the most successful shows of the 1990s, winning 37 Emmy Awards over the course of its 11 seasons and 264 episodes on NBC. It held the record until 2016 when"Game of Thrones"won 38.
It told the stories of Frasier Crane, who returns to his Seattle hometown to care for his elderly father, and his pretentious psychiatrist brother, Niles Crane.
Having spent over 20 years of my creative life on the Paramount lot, both producing shows and performing in several, Id like to congratulate Paramount+ on its entry into the streaming world, Grammer, 66, said in a statement. I gleefully anticipate sharing the next chapter in the continuing journey of Dr Frasier Crane.
No mention was made in Wednesday's announcement of whether co-stars David Hyde Pierce (Niles Crane) or Jane Leeves, who played caregiver Daphne Moon, would be joining the revival. Actor John Mahoney, who played the down-to-earth father, died in 2018.
"There has long been a call from fans for its return, and that call is now answered," David Stapf, president of CBS Studios, said in a statement.
The series, to be produced by CBS Studios, will be aired on the new streaming service Paramount+, but no date was given.
"Frasier" made its debut in 1993 and concluded in 2004.
The return of "Frasier" is the latest in a series of revivals and reboots of hit TV shows from two or three decades ago, including "Sex and the City," "Dexter," "Roseanne," "Gossip Girl," "Murphy Brown," and "Will & Grace."
