NBC Head Says a Frasier Revival is Unlikely

August 10, 2017 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

While television revivals is all the rage these days, NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt says that one beloved series is unlikely to return. Greenblatt told reporters at the TCA summer press tour (via TV Line) that while there would certainly be some potential interest from the network, they seem to be the only one who want it.

“I’ve had conversations with [executive producer] David Lee about it,” Greenblatt said. “Frasier would be great. I’d love to [bring back] Frasier. We put out feelers about [it] over the years. But I don’t think there’s any real interest. I think everyone’s moved on.”

Greenblatt also said that the death of co-creator David Angell, who died in the 9/11 attacks, also factored against the show. “I don’t think [David Lee and Peter Casey] want to do it again without him,” he said.

Frasier was a huge success for NBC, spinning out of Cheers in 1993 to immediate success. It ran eleven seasons and consistently ranked in the top fifteen shows each season, earning a total of thirty-seven Primetime Emmy Awards during its run.
