Kelsey Grammer wants to bring back Frasier


Kelsey Grammer is making plans to revive his most famous character, Dr. Frasier Crane, for a new TV show.

The actor found fame playing the pompous psychiatrist in hit 1980s TV show "Cheers," and he went on to star in the hugely successful spin-off series "Frasier."

He spent 20 years playing the beloved character before "Frasier" came to an end in 2004 after more than a decade on the small screen.

Grammer has since failed to replicate his success and has seen a number of new shows flop, including "Back to You" and "Hank," and he's now considering bringing back the cast of "Frasier" for a "reunion show."

The funnyman shared the idea with his followers on and also pondered plans for a Frasier spin-off, focusing on the characters' children.

In a series of posts over more than month, he writes, "Maybe it is time for a Frasier reunion. (It's) very interesting to say the least... maybe a Frasier reunion on like a new show seriously thinking about that !!!"

He later adds, "I'm now really thinking maybe a spin off of Frasier? How would u feel about that with like my son and Niles' sibling? Cameos by old cast?... Maybe an updated theme to be centred around social media. Now that would be powerful, include like Twitter... iPhones etc."
