Frasier is coming back with a brand new reboot in 2023! Here’s a quick look at who’s who and who stars in the Paramount+ reboot of the hit sitcom!

The character of Frasier Crane first appeared in Cheers, a pompous psychiatrist played by Kelsey Grammer. He became a major character throughout the show’s run, and after Cheers ended, he earned his own  spin-off in 1993. The series followed him as a radio host in Seattle, handling life with his father (the late John Mahoney) and brother Niles (David Hyde Pierce).

The series was a hit running for ten seasons and earned Grammer four Emmy Awards. Now, Frasier is coming back! The series is notable in that Grammer is the only regular cast member back full-time for it. It will follow Frasier as he moves back to Boston to reconnect with his grown son, Freddy. Frasier gets a job at a local college and even invests in a bar named Mahoney’s. He tries to handle his new life and friends. Here’s a quick look at who stars in the show and where you’ve seen them before!

Kelsey Grammer as Frasier Crane

He’s older and rougher but still the same Frasier with that pompous attitude clashing with others. There’s also Frasier trying to handle life with Freddy and a new batch of younger students with his dry humor and setting for some more dramatic turns in his life.

Where have you seen Kelsey Grammer before?

Besides Cheers and Frasier, Grammar has also been a regular TV presence with Back to You, Hank, Boss, Proven Innocent, and dozens of other shows. His movie roles include everything from comedies like Down Periscope to Toy Story 2 to the cult action film Money Plane. He’s also graced Broadway in several productions.

Nicholas Lyndhurst as Alan Cornwall

Alan Cornwall is Frasier’s old college friend, now a professor who helps him land a job at the college. He appears to be a drier British type who has some ways of putting Frasier in his place and is rather sardonic on today’s youth.

Where have you seen Nicholas Lyndhurst before?

The veteran British actor got his break on the long-running British sitcom Only Fools and Horses. He became a regular star in numerous British comedies and dramas, including the police series New Tricks and Goodnight Sweetheart. This series marks his first major American TV series.

Jack Cutmore-Scott as Frederick “Freddy” Crane

Frasier’s son isn’t that happy to have his father back in town, as they’ve had issues given Frasier’s unique attitude. It also looks like Freddy is hiding some sort of secret from his dad, and his laid-back everyman style clashes with his father’s more elitist attitude.

Where have you seen Jack Cutmore-Scott before?

The British actor debuted in 2014’s Kingsman: The Secret Service. He also starred in the short-lived 2018 ABC crime series Deception as a disgraced magician (and his identical twin brother) helping solve cases for the FBI. A favorite of director Christopher Nolan, Cutmore-Scott has had roles in Tenet and Oppenheimer.

Anders Keith as David Crane

While Frasier’s brother, Nile and wife Daphne, won’t be on the show, their grown son, David, will be around. However, it looks like he’s the complete opposite of his parents as a laid-back guy who prefers having a beer in his sweatpants watching football to wine and books. Hopefully, he shares an update on where his parents are.

Where have you seen Anders Keith before?

As it turns out, you really haven’t seen Keith in anything before, as Frasier marks his first major acting credit. That makes him the youngest of the cast, but hopefully, the experience around him helps.

Jess Salgueiro às Eve

Eve is Freddy’s roommate and it’s indicated also his girlfriend. Obviously, Frasier is a bit taken aback, and it’s hinted this may not be the kind of woman he’d have chosen to be with his son, but hopefully comes around. It also seems Eve is a bartender at Mahoney’s to let them hang out more.

Where have you seen Jess Salguiero before?

Born in Winnipeg, Jess Salguiero has had recurring roles in Saving Hope, Orphan Black, Letterkenny, Jupiter’s Legacy, The Expanse, Y: The Last Man and a starring role in the Netflix drama Pretty Little Things.

Toks Olagundoye as Olivia

Olivia is the head of the psychology department at Frasier’s college. It appears they have a professional relationship, but perhaps some banter between them might lead to romantic tension down the line.

Where have you seen Toks Olagundoye before?

This Nigerian actress has guest-starred on numerous TV shows and played Haley in the final season of Castle and Veep. Olagundoye starred in the cult alien comedy The Neighbors and Paramount+’s reboot of Fatal Attraction.

Bebe Neuwirth as Lilith Sternin

Frasier’s ex-wife has long had a unique relationship with him over the years, including a few hook-ups after their divorce. She looks to be popping into town to check in on Freddy, and it might be fun if she has a closer relationship with him than Fraiser does to keep up their offbeat parenting.

Where have you seen Bebe Neuwirth before?

Besides Cheers and Frasier, Neuwirth (who won two Emmy Awards playing Lillith) has starred in series like The Good Wife, Madam Secretary, The Flight Attendant and more. She’s also a two-time Tony Award winner for shows like Chicago, Sweet Charity, Damn Yankees and The Addams Family.

Peri Gilpin as Roz Doyle

Frasier’s former radio show producer, Roz’s smart mouth and attitude were always good for putting Frasier in his place. It’s unsure how she’ll be returning on the show, but hopefully, she will bring some of that same sass and spark to the revival that she did on the original series.

Where have you seen Peri Gilpin before?

Since the series ended, Gilpin has been a regular TV face with roles on Make It Or Break It, Scorpion, Mr. Robinson and CSI among dozens of guest-star appearances on movies and shows.
