With shows like "Roseanne" getting a reboot this year, it's no surprise that "Frasier" would be on fans' minds, but will it ever return to our screens?


Kelsey Grammer has been pursuing the reboot idea for a while and recently told a USC Comedy Festival audience, with co-star David Hyde Pierce sitting next to him, that they could not make "Frasier" without the original cast.

"In my own personal approach to what I’ve discussed with other people is that I wouldn’t want to do it without these guys.”

While NBC has not made any noises about recreating the hit show, with its viewership of 25 million in the USA and millions more abroad, Grammer speaks about it with passion.

Doctor Frasier Crane, a character that first appeared in the hit sitcom "Cheers," was Grammer's first big break into television.


He went on to enjoy silver-screen success in Hollywood movies "X-Men: The Last Stand," "The Expendables 3" and "Transformers: Age of Extinction."


Grammer, Emmy Award-winning actor, told fans during a panel for the 25th anniversary of the series that he had not found a worthy premise on which to base a reboot, but that he would continue looking.

“No, there’s been no premise that has come along that has the necessary fire.”

Fans of the show will remember the way it ended, with Dr. Frasier Crane leaving the state of Seattle for Chicago. Obviously, the storyline would have changed in the last 14 years and would require fresh new ideas.

Grammar feels that the hiatus would best be written as a time-period where Dr. Crane sorted out some issues that he hadn't been able to before.


Grammer has reportedly been the person at the forefront of pushing for the reboot at CBS, meeting potential writers and trying to come up with a working concept.


One thing is certain if there is to be a reboot, Grammer is adamant that he wants his old castmates to be there with him, depicting “a new life with a new continuation for all of them but that they’re still together.”
