Is Cheers going to be part of the Fraiser reboot?

The new series takes place in Boston, which is where Cheers was located in the original sitcom. However, Frasier has yet to visit his old neighborhood hangout. During a recent interview with Deadline, Grammer ruled out the possibility of going back to the bar in the new show. “I’m not sure the guys who wrote Cheers would want us to go back to Cheers,” Grammer explained.

“It’s like, let’s let that be where it is. It’s a monument in the minds of television history. But is it possible we might see someone from the old days at the bar? Maybe. I was just spitballing a little while ago about how it might be kind of fun to do a Christmas show next year, the Christmas of Cheers Past.”

What else did Kelsey Grammer say about the reboot?

In an interview with Independent, Grammer explained that the new series is less of a reboot and more of an all-new series to feature the character.

“The ethics of Frasier – the study of good, let’s say – was important to us,” Grammer explained. “It seemed important to all the people that were involved in the original one, and it has remained important in the show today.” He continued, “Frasier has been my ministry, you could say … He’s trying to spread the good word, to put some love in the world – and tolerance, true tolerance. Those are powerful words, but most people use them to manipulate. I think tolerance is a beautiful, beautiful concept. Not particularly realised in behaviour in our country, but still a good goal.”

“This isn’t really a spin-off,” Grammer added. “It’s more of a third act, or fourth act. A spin-off of a spin-off.” Fraiser is now streaming on Paramount+.
