Frasier’s Peri Gilpin reprises radio producer role in upcoming reboot
First scene of Episode 1 of Frasier
The highly anticipated Frasier reboot was officially confirmed earlier this year, however, network bosses and the show stars have remained tight-lipped about its return.
The classic sitcom will see Kelsey Grammer reprising his role as the beloved radio psychiatrist, Dr Frasier Crane.
This time, fans will see him take on new challenges and forge new relationships as he relocates to a different city.
As well as the titular character, fans will see more familiar faces return to the show as Peri Gilpin is set to make a comeback as Roz Doyle.
Fans will remember Roz as the radio presenter on the Dr Frasier Crane Show on KACL-AM.
Throughout its 11-season run on NBC, Roz would often clash with Frasier’s brother Niles Crane, before later becoming more friendly later in the series.
The last time viewers saw her, things ended on a high for the character as she finally became the station manager.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gilpin will make a guest appearance in the Frasier reboot.
She is the second former cast member to join the new show, following the recent announcement of Bebe Neuwirth’s comeback as Frasier’s ex-wife, Lilith.

David Hyde Pierce chose not to reprise his role as Frasier’s brother, Niles and it’s yet to be revealed if his character will be replaced.
Jane Leeves, who starred as Daphne Moon, Frasier’s live-in housekeeper and physical therapist for his father Martin Crane (John Mahoney), has yet to be attached to the revival.
Fans will also see Only Fools and Horse’s Nicolas Lyndhurst make an appearance in the American sitcom.
According to Variety, Nicholas will star as Alan Cornwall who is described as “Frasier’s old college buddy turned university professor.”
“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.”
This will be a major reunion for Lyndhurst and Grammar as they previously starred together in Man of La Mancha for the English National Opera at the London Coliseum.
Frasier seasons 1-11 are available to stream on NBC in the USA and All 4 in the UK.
