Paramount+ is moving forward with the Frasier sequel series, as they have no cast Nicholas Lyndhurst to star opposite Kelsey Grammar. As such, he’s the firs tone to join the new production, but it’s not the first time these two actors have worked together. They both worked at the English National Opera in Man of La Mancha, so it’ll be a fun reunion for the two actors.
Lyndhurst is set to play the character of Alan Cornwall, who was Frasier’s old college friend who now is a professor himself. He is described as: “british, boozy and larger than life, Alan has an intellect on par with Frasier’s—if only he ever felt like using it. Alan’s mischievous streak might be just what Frasier could use to shake up his routine, while Frasier’s thoughtful guidance might help Alan find some of the direction he’s been missing in his own life.”
So far, not much is known about the series’ overall plot, but the following logline has been released on the series: “Frasier is off to a different city with new challenges to face, new relationships to forge, and an old dream or two to finally fulfill. Frasier has re-entered the building.” Taking the character out of his familiar environment makes for a great set-up and gives the writers of the project some freedom on how to approach the sequel series.
