The new “Frasier” hopefully won’t be a one-off. Kelsey Grammer has teased plans for “Frasier” Season 2, and he hopes the series continues for years to come. Paramount+ has yet to greenlight another installment of the comedy series, but everyone involved seems dedicated to turning it into a long-term project.
By the time “Frasier” ends, it will hopefully be a full-circle experience for the titular character that puts a bow on his story. In an interview with Deadline, Grammer said that this era of the franchise will hopefully see Frasier experience some personal and professional growth. “We’ve been kicking around some ideas, but they mostly revolve around the idea of Frasier finding happiness, becoming a good father, and having breakthroughs at college,” he said. That sounds like a continuation of an ongoing story as opposed to a fresh start, which reboots tend to be.
A Niles return seems unlikely, so don’t expect this “Frasier” to resemble what came before. However, that doesn’t mean the creators don’t want to make the new series special in its own way. Whether it’s a reboot, spinoff, requel, or something else, most fans are just happy to spend more time with Frasier.
