Imagining Frasier Crane’s Seattle comeback

The ‘Frasier’ reboot may be in a different city, but our hometown sitcom shrink is still a local in our eyes.

🎶 Baby we hear the blues are callin’. 🎶

It’s music to our ears that a “Frasier” reboot is gonna happen. The streaming service Paramount+ officially green lit the series and recently began casting.

Details are being kept close to the sweater vest, but word is that Frasier Crane will be “off to a different city.” That would be a bummer, since we all know Seattle was the real star of the hit 90s sitcom.

So, TV execs, before you do anything too rash, consider these future plots that could only happen locally.

  • “No More Cafe Nervosa” | Instead of the fictional coffee shop, Frasier and his brother Niles can perfect their elaborate orders at Caffe Vita, Victrola, or Fulcrum. Double decaf, nonfat latte with medium foam, please.
  • “Frasier Finds a Sweet New Pad” | The view from Frasier’s original apartment was bogus — but there are swanky penthouses downtown. What if Frasier got one only to see a big crane blocking the scenery?
  • “Niles Accidentally Breaks Chihuly Exhibit” | Whoops.
