The new series is written by Chris Harris (writer and producer of "How I Met Your Mother") and Joe Cristalli ("On the Best of Families") - both also executive produce alongside lead star Grammer.
Grammer previously said on CBS's "The Talk" that filming for the "Frasier" reboot " are expected to begin in October 2022. "We are in the final stages of the final script for the first episode, and it looks pretty good," he said, noting that the first episode will also deal with the absence of the late actor John Mahoney, who played Martin, Frasier's father.
According to the assessment, the sequel series will consist of 10 episodes and is expected to focus on the next chapter of Frazier's life in a new city, after leaving Seattle behind.
Most of the original cast members of "Frasier" are not expected to return to the new series in a permanent role, but they may come in guest roles.
Besides Mahoney, the original series starred David Hyde Pierce as Niles, Frasier's brother, Jane Libbs as the father's carer, Daphne Moon, and Perry Gilpin as Rose Doyle, the producer of the radio show where Frasier gave advice to callers.
