Feb. 24 (UPI) — Paramount+ announced Wednesday that a new Frasier series would come to the streaming service. Kelsey Grammer is confirmed to return in his trademark role.

Rumors of a Frasier revival began after the success of classic sitcom revivals like Fuller House and Will & Grace. As of Feb. 1 discussions were only in early stages on Frasier.

“I gleefully anticipate sharing the next chapter in the continuing journey of Dr. Frasier Crane,” Grammer said in a statement.

Grammer debuted as Frasier Crane on Cheers as a love interest to Diane Chambers (Shelley Long), and therefore a foil to Sam Malone (Ted Danson). Crane remained on Cheers after Long left and for the duration of the show.

Watch below: 

Crane got his own spinoff in 1993 after Cheers ended. On Frasier, Crane moved in with his father (John Mahoney) and brother, Niles (David Hyde Pierce). Crane became a radio show therapist for 11 seasons.

Mahoney died in 2018 at the age of 77. Paramount+’s statement did not indicate whether Pierce or Frasier costars Jane Leeves and Peri Gilpin would be involved in the revival.

CBS All Access will change its name to Paramount+ on March 4. They have already begun advertising with famous Paramount characters from Star Trek, Dora the Explorer, Beavis and Butt-Head and more climbing to the top of Paramount Mountain, the studio logo.

Grammer will executive produce with writers Chris Harris and Joe Cristalli.
