I just saw the Frasier reboot trailer on YouTube, and I have to share it with you. It had me totally fooled!

WHOA! Is this how Frasier will actually look and feel when it is rebooted? Or, is it a parody of all of these types of dramas we see nowadays on television and streaming services? Either way, it would be great to watch as a drama or a comedy because you know the writing, the cast, and the production would be top-notch or actor Kelsey Grammer would not be involved.

Cheers was certainly one of my favorite tv sitcoms of the 80s and early 90s, and I still love watching the reruns. I was a bit skeptical when they spun off the character of Dr. Frasier Crane for the new tv sitcom in 1993, but the spinoff delivered the laughs in a big way! In many ways, I like Frasier even better than Cheers. The cast was brilliant in both shows. The writing was great in both shows. The laughs were huge in both shows. But, I think the show Frasier was actually able to delve into character issues due to its basis in human psychology rather than being set in a neighborhood bar.  Plus, it was always great when one of the stars/characters from Cheers would reprise their roles on an episode of Frasier.

According to eonline.com, Kelsey Grammer recently revealed that the script for the first show was almost completed back in July, and they were hoping to begin filming this coming fall. When will we see new rebooted episodes of Frasier on Paramount +? We’ll have to wait and see.

So, as you can tell, Frasier is one of my all-time favorite comedies. Will the reboot be my next favorite? Will it be yours? I do know I’ll be watching, because I think Kelsey Grammer and the character of Dr. Frasier Crane have more of a story to tell. And knowing the quality of the original sitcom, we can be assured that we will be pleased with the quality of the reboot.
