This ’90s Sitcom is Rumored to Make a Comeback

Television shows back in the day are indeed very different from the ones that are being aired nowadays. The entertainment industry has definitely evolved and there are a lot of much-loved sitcoms back in the 90s and early 00s that are not just comparable to the shows that we have on the TV today.

In fact, the streaming services like Netflix and Hulu have already taken over the home entertainment industry, which can be considered as a good thing since they actually have the power to stream even old shows and movies once they get a license to do it.

Frasier is rumored to have a reboot on the works

This is exactly what they did on the shows from the ten to twenty years ago, just like streaming the American sitcom Frasier, which was originally released in 1993. It was actually a spinoff of another sitcom entitled Cheers and was just a continuation of it.

The spinoff was actually about the story of the main character Frasier Crane, who returned to his hometown and lived a new life as a local radio host. The sitcom stars Kelsey Grammer, Jane Leeves, David Hyde Pierce, Peri Gilpin, John Mahoney, and Dan Butler.

This show was critically acclaimed back in the day, and they even won an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series, not just once, but for five consecutive years. Which is basically the reason why the appeal to have to available on Netflix, as well as a reboot, was on the news for months.

Frasier on Netflix

This show has been available on Netflix and people are definitely considering it as a somewhat more mature version of another sitcom Friends. Technically, Frasier wouldn’t last for 11 years if it wasn’t so loved by the viewers. Some people find it actually surprising that this sitcom would actually be a hit considering it is an old one and the premise isn’t actually as light.

The main character, which is portrayed by Kelsey Grammer, is all about failure. He was broken from a divorce, had a public suicide threat, and almost every negativity vibe is coming from him. His character is too far from someone who has an uplifting personality.

The show is being compared to some sitcoms nowadays like the “Big Bang Theory,” “How I Met Your Mother” and “New Girl.” Then again, people often describe this show as a mediocre show that is something you would want to watch while in bed or on the couch as you slowly doze off. It is somewhat comforting, hence why it has been streamed on Netflix.

Possible Reboot?

It may be shown on Netflix, there has been a rumor that the 1993 sitcom is actually on the works of being rebooted. The show took a bow in 2004 after being on television for 11 years.

It is said that lead star and executive producer Kelsey Grammer is actually interested in coming back and rebooting their sitcom with some all-new series involved. When people heard about the news, they actually expected something that is a comeback reboot that is like Will & Grace, but then again, according to Frasier himself, he is actually looking into doing the reboot that is set in an entirely new city.

Frasier has the most Emmy win by a sitcom

This is, of course, something that is not technically a new idea, since Frasier itself is already a spinoff of the original which is Cheers. It was also set into a new city which was from Boston to Seattle, and Grammer said that he is actually looking into setting it back into the east coast which is somewhere in New York. Based on some sources, Grammer has been meeting with a couple of writers who had been pitching some new plot and ideas for the new series.

Once they have finally found the main concept, the producers would then settle on the premise and production may begin. However, there is still no news if the original cast would actually be willing to reprise their respective roles, and if they are actually willing to at least be a part of it.

This show is known to be one of the most celebrated sitcoms in the 90s and the early 2000s, the even set the record for winning 37 Emmys over the years that they have aired.
