Frasier reboot plot
The original series followed divorced psychiatrist Frasier Crane, who moved back from Boston to his hometown, Seattle. He hoped for a new start; however, this wasn’t easy, as he had to take care of his father.
Luckily, British nurse Daphne was a big help to him (and she became the love interest for Frasier’s younger brother, Niles). Besides his personal struggles, Frasier hosted a radio program about mental health and eventually befriended his producer, the witty and sarcastic Roz.
In the new show, Frasier returns to Boston. Unfortunately, many faces from the original series don’t appear in the sequel. With the fresh cast, Frasier faces new problems and adventures.
