Possible Cast of the Frasier’s Reboot
In the year 2020, the main leads of the original Frasier series appeared in a show virtually in June. They came there to collect funds for the affected people who lost everything because of the Covid-19 pandemic. During that fundraising show, the star cast was asked about the Frasier revival, but none of them answered the questions.
And during the 25th-anniversary celebration of the original series, Kelsey Grammer said that he would not join the show unless the Co-Stars joined. The original show contained Kelsey Grammer, David Hyde Pierce ( played Frasier’s brother Niles), Jane Leeves, Peri Gilpin ( played Frasier’s producer role ), and John Mahoney ( played Frasier and Niles’s father role ) as the main cast.
Kelsey Grammer is confirmed in the reboot, but the other cast is not revealed yet. One of the lead actors, the late John Mahoney, who played Frasier’s dad role, died in 2018—leading to his exemption from the reboot.
Also, another actress Jane Leeves, who played Daphne Moon, said that she is not going to leave her current show for the Reboot. Therefore we are expecting that instead of playing as main leads in the reboot, the old cast will be seen doing a cameo in the new Reboot or the new chapter.
The story of the original Frasier series is about a titular character Dr. Frasier Crane, a Psychiatrist, who goes back to his home city Seattle, after his divorce and his bachelor’s life in Boston, which was shown in Cheers ( the spin-off Frasier ).

Then, after all these things Frasier and Martin started living in their apartment together, where Daphne Moon joined them as a physical therapist. And in their apartment, Frasier’s brother Niles Crane became a frequent visitor.
Frasier also worked for a radio talk show as a radio psychiatrist, where he talked about his kindness, wisdom to others, and politeness. The entire series revolves around Frasier’s struggles, troubles, and family, which will make you laugh, emotional and relatable sometimes.
