Though the number of episodes ordered is currently unknown, the publication estimates that it will ‘likely be 10.’

Though the other original cast members are not expected to be series regulars, it’s likely they might make guest appearances.

Grammer confirmed in July that they were ‘in the final stages of the final script for the first episode’ and added ‘I cried, so I’m happy.’ 

The original series amassed 37 Emmy Awards over 11 seasons spanning 1993-2004. 

Fans can expect the pretentious Harvard-trained psychiatrist to bring his radio show/podcast to a new city after leaving his Seattle hometown.

The actor told In Depth With Graham Bensinger in 2019: 'We've hatched the plan, what we think is the right way to go...It's not going to be Seattle. It's not going to be the same Frasier, it's going to be the man in his next iteration'

‘We’ve got it hatched. We’ve hatched the plan, what we think is the right way to go,’ the actor told In Depth With Graham Bensinger in 2019.

‘It’s not going to be Seattle. It’s not going to be the same Frasier, it’s going to be the man in his next iteration. Hopefully that’ll be something people like watching. But I think it’ll be funny.’

Grammer famously originated the character as a married shrink living in Boston on nine seasons of the classic NBC sitcom Cheers.
