Paramount+ is making way for more tossed salads and scrambled eggs, as Frasier is renewed for a second season.

Frasier is undoubtably one of the most beloved American sitcoms of all time. Spun-off from Cheers, itself an 11 season American institution, Frasier had some of the wittiest writing on television, elevated by the magnificent casting of David Hyde Pierce as Frasier’s equally fastidious brother Niles.

Along with the much missed John Mahoney as their Dad Martin, Jane Leeves as housekeeper Daphne Moon and Peri Gilpin as acerbic producer Roz Doyle, over eleven seasons the show became embedded in American culture.

Talks of a reboot had been going on for years before it finally went into production for Paramount+ in 2022 under the creative team of writers Chris Harris and Joe Cristalli.

It saw Frasier move back to Boston in order to spend more time with his son Freddy, played by Jack Cutmore-Scott.

Hyde Pierce declined to return as Niles, so the role Frasier’s intellectual sparring partner was taken by Nicholas Lyndhurst as his old university friend Alan, who lectures at the University where Frasier ends up getting a job. Toks Olagundoye plays Olivia, head of the university’s psychology department. The cast is completed by Jess Salgueiro as Eve, Freddy’s roommate, and Anders Keith as David, Frasier’s nephew. Season one also featured guest appearances from original series cast, including Bebe Neuwirth as Frasier’s icy ex wife Lilith and the retuurn of Gilpin as Roz.

Paramount+ has confirmed that it has recommissioned the show for a second season, which will be recorded in front of a live audience.

Grammar said in a statement that “Fraiser is a love story, and I am very happy we will be allowed to continue it. I’m delighted that our partners at CBS Studios and Paramount+ are on board for another season, and I can’t wait for the fans to see what we have in store!”.

You can watch both the original series and the reboot of Frasier on Paramount+.
