Rehearsals for Paramount+’s revival of “Frasier” (1993-2004) begin in February, series star Kelsey Grammer told People – but they won’t include most of the show’s original cast as series regulars. That decision was made after David Hyde Pierce, who played Niles, decided not to participate. “In a very funny way, it just took us to a new place, which was what we originally wanted to do anyway, which was a ‘Frasier’ third act,” said Grammer. “It’s an entirely new life for him.”
