If you can hear the blues a-callin', tossed salad and scrambled eggs – it can only mean one thing: yes, Frasier is coming back!The loveable, neurotic psychiatrist, played by Kelsey Grammer, is set to join the many, many reboots of beloved ’80s and ’90s series and movies. Frasier ended in 2004 after 11 seasons and a then-record 37 Emmy awards (it was overtaken by Game of Thrones’ 59 Emmys).

The new Frasier series is likely to feature the surviving cast of the show and, like Will & Grace and Mad About You, it will continue the characters’ stories.

Star and producer Kelsey says the new series “will be the third act of Frasier [after Cheers and Frasier]”. The series ended with Frasier leaving Seattle and heading to Chicago, where he was hoping to make a new life with matchmaker Charlotte (Laura Linney). Kelsey has hinted that Frasier could still be living in Chicago but has been cagey about his character’s relationship status.He also wouldn’t say what line of work he would be in, but he’s definitely “past the radio show. He might be an art dealer. He might be a professor. We don’t know yet”.
