The star of the "Only Fools And Horses" plays in the "Frasier"

The successful 1990s television series " Frasier," in which Kelsey Grammer plays a psychiatrist who broadcasts a radio show, will be followed by a sequel, it was recently reported. Grammer's return to the main character was instantly confirmed, and the rest of the cast is slowly coming together.

- 'I look forward to the next chapter in Dr. Frasier Crane's continuous adventure,' Grammer said of returning to one of America's most successful sitcoms.

Meanwhile, "Only Fools and Horses" star Nicholas Lyndhurst has been cast as Frasier's "old pal from college" in the sequel.

According to Variety, the actor (better known as Rodney Trotter) is the first cast member to confirm his participation. Grammer and Lyndhurst have collaborated with the English National Opera on "Man of La Mancha" before, so this will not be their first time performing together.

Although the plot is being kept under wraps, the official description reads:

Frasier leaves for another city with new challenges, new relationships to form, and an old dream or two to finally fulfill. Frasier has re-entered the building!

Alan Cornwall, Lyndhurst's character, is an old college friend of Frasier's who has become a university professor.

A British drinker with a tremendous heart has a brain comparable to Frasier's if he ever wanted to utilize it.

His tendency for trouble could disrupt Frasier's routine, while Frasier's wise counsel could help Alan discover the direction he's been looking for in his own life.

Meanwhile, it was reported that British actor Jack Cutmore-Scott could play Frasier's son Freddie, who will effectively be the new series' second main character. Cutmore-Scott will be the fifth actor to play the character in the show's 11 seasons since the child actors have rotated.

Freddie is a cross between his well-educated father and his down-to-earth grandfather, and he threw up college and a prospective job as a psychologist to become a firefighter.

Apart from Grammer, none of the original cast members will return for the sequel, including those who were instrumental in the original's success, such as David Hyde Pierce, Jane Leeves, and Perry Gilpin.

Let's remind you, the series had 11 seasons from 1993 to 2004, and it won 37 Emmys, five of them for best comedy.

The sequel will be shown on the new platform Paramount+.
