Peri Gilpin to Reprise ‘Frasier’ Role in Paramount+ Revival


The Frasier revival/sequel at Paramount+ welcomes another cast member from the original show.

Peri Gilpin, who played Frasier Crane’s (Kelsey Grammer) radio producer Roz Doyle on the long-running NBC series, will reprise her role for a guest appearance in the sequel. She is the second former Frasier cast member to board the new show and join Bebe Neuwirth as Frasier’s ex-wife, Lilith

In the update, Frasier returns to Boston with new challenges, new relationships to forge, and some old dreams he may finally fulfill. The regular cast also includes Jack Cutmore-Scott as Frasier and Lilith’s son, Freddy, Nicholas Lyndhurst, Toks Olagundoye, Jess Salgueiro and Anders Keith, who plays Frasier’s cousin, David.

David Hyde Pierce opted not to return because Frasier and Jane Leeves’ brother, Nigel, is not yet attached to the revival (John Mahoney, who played Frasier and Nigel’s father, died in 2018).

When Frasier ended its 11-season NBC run in 2004, Roz was promoted to station manager when Frasier left Seattle to seek a new chapter in his life. There’s no word yet on how the characters will intersect in the new series.

The Frasier revival comes from CBS Studios and Grammer’s Grammnet NH Productions. Writers Chris Harris and Joe Cristalli produce alongside Grammer, Tom Russo and Jordan McMahon. James Burrows, who helmed more than 30 episodes of the original series, will direct the first two episodes.
