Kelsey Grammer Wants To Bring Back 'Frasier' For A Reboot

With reboot fever spreading across network television and streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, actor Kelsey Grammer thinks it's about time that his hit show, Frasier, got a remake after 15 years off the air.

Town & Country says that Grammer believes that Frasier, which was a spinoff of the popular sitcom, Cheers, is ripe for a reboot, but it has to be done right or not at all. The actor, who is the ex-husband of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer, doesn't think that the series should pick up where it left off 15 years ago.

"We're shopping for the right idea because I don't think we should just pick up where we left off. Will and Grace has done a continuation, which is like the next day after they were last on the air–they picked up right where they left off. I don't think that's appropriate for Frasier."

"I like the one where Frederick actually ends up being more like Martin Crane, instead of Frasier. I'm sort of drawn to that. We've had the pitch where he was tortured and didn't know what his identity was, all sorts of stuff."
"We would need to deal with [Mahoney's passing] within the storytelling, but I'd want everybody back, if they want to come back."

The actor had nothing more to add, saying that a Frasier reboot isn't tied to a network yet, but the complete original series is available on Amazon Prime.
