Last August, I posted this mind-blowing trailer for the Frasier television series reboot in an article on 96.3KKLZ.com. It certainly teased a very different direction for the highly-anticipated sequel on Paramount+.
Well, now the cast has been set for the new series, in which actor Kelsey Grammer reprises his popular character as radio psychiatrist Dr. Frasier Crane. According to an article written by Nellie Andreeva and posted on Deadline.com, actress Toks Olagundaye is the latest addition to the cast. You may know her from the series The Neighbors, or from her stint as a series regular on Castle.
Per Andreeva’s article, “Olagundoye will play Olivia, head of the psych department at an Ivy League university.” Actor Nicholas Lyndhurst will play her nemesis, Alan, an old college buddy of Frasier’s. Apparently, these two will be disagreeing about everything, except the fact that they both admire Frasier.
The Deadline.com article goes on to name the rest of the main cast of characters for the Frasier sequel, including “Jack Cutmore-Scott as Frasier and Lilith’s son Freddy, Jess Salgueiro as Freddy’s roommate Eve and Anders Keith as Niles and Daphne’s son David.”
So, will the Frasier reboot be set in Seattle once again? I’m afraid not. Andreeva’s article explains that Dr. Crane is “off to a different city with new challenges to face, new relationships to forge, and an old dream or two to finally fulfill.”
Writers for the sequel include Chris Harris and Joe Cristalli. Kelsey Grammer will executive produce the multi-camera situation comedy, which will be “produced by CBS Studios in association with Grammer’s Grammnet NH Productions.”
I’m getting hungry for “tossed salad and scrambled eggs. Good night everybody!”
