Is 'Frasier' the next series to get the revival treatment?

Is 'Frasier' the next series to get the revival treatment?”

The show, produced by Grammer's Grammnet Prods. and CBS TV Studios' predecessor Paramount Network Television, ran on NBC for 11 seasons, from 1993 to 2004, and starred Grammer, David Hyde Pierce, Jane Leeves, Peri Gilpin, and the late John Mahoney.

Deadline's Nellie Andreeva reports that Kelsey Grammer is trying to put together a Frasier reboot.

It's still in the early stages for now anyway, with the report stating that Grammer is meeting with a number of writers to hear different concepts for the series, and if there's one good enough then it could be moved forward.

Kelsey Grammer attends a private celebration of The 70th Anniversary of Israel hosted by the Consul General of Israel, Los Angeles, Sam Grundwerg, June 10, 2018, in Los Angeles.

The revival is being envisioned as a reboot that would differ from the recent returns of "Will & Grace" and "Roseanne" by not continuing the plot of "Frasier".

The show focused on the character of Dr. Frasier Crane, who left his job as a Boston therapist to work on a radio talk show in Seattle.

"Frasier", a spinoff of "Cheers" originally aired on NBC from 1993 to 2004 and won 37 Emmy awards.

For those of you who didn't watch Frasier or were too young to understand the sophisticated humor that came with the show, here's a little refresher. This would be a true reboot, likely placing Frasier in a brand-new city. I think he can ease right back into the role.
