The Frasier reboot that has been confirmed as definitely happening now has some plot information.

Catching up with New York Live, Dr Frasier Crane actor Kelsey Grammer teased a few elements of the upcoming series reboot, including how they will pay tribute to John Mahoney, who played Frasier's father, in the very first episode.

Mahoney sadly passed away in 2018 at the age of 77.

"Frasier's gonna change cities again," Grammer revealed, calling his character "the George Bailey of television".

"He thinks he's gonna go off and do one thing, and sure enough, his life takes him in another direction," Grammer added, "and he ends up rich beyond his dreams."

He did reveal that he's "reached out to everybody" about returning for the revival, but he didn't confirm if any of the cast had agreed to do another series.

He previously admitted the story can be "told with or without them", but that he really hopes it's the former.

"We think we're going to get most of the actors back, I'm certainly hopeful that we will, and I'm fairly confident that they'll come back," he told Collider.

"We have a story to tell – that can actually be told with or without them, honestly – but I want them back because that's what I always dreamed of. I thought we should explore all their lives in their third act, and so that is my hope."

The show, which originally ran for 11 seasons between 1993 and 2004, is set to be rebooted on streaming service Paramount+.
