>While longtime fans might be disappointed to learn that Frasier will not be returning to his old stomping grounds of Seattle, Grammer teased that nostalgic viewers will have much to look forward to with the revival.
>"I can assure the audience that it will still be playing up to the audience," he said. "That the old sort of indelible thing about our show was always we tried not to make contemporary culture too much a part of it so that it would date itself. "
>"And also we always thought, you know, maybe we play like everybody is as smart as the smartest people we know, instead of sort of a medium-like average of a ten-year-old. And it seemed to bear some fruit for us in the past. So we're we're thrilled to mount the show again in that way with that frame of mind."
>Grammer is also executive producing the revival, which was picked up for a full first season in October, according to Deadline.
>When asked if there was any fun fact that longtime fans would be surprised to learn about his beloved character, Grammer admitted that he had "never really thought about it."
>"He pretty much wears his heart on his sleeve," Grammer explained. "He's been an honest, open, tortured, you know, staggering, onward, rejoicing, human being for a long time."
>The four-time Emmy Award winner continued, "He's been an inspiration to me on some level, because he no matter how hard you knock them down, he still bounces up like one of those funny clowns, you know, sort of weighted on the bottom."
>"He comes in for another lick," he added. "I think what's remarkable about him — I think what they may be surprised about is how still timely it will be that Frasier is still continuing his odyssey through this emotional landscape and through his dreams of becoming the best version of himself he can be. That's kind of been his motivation all this time. And to do the work."
>Grammer went on to say, "That's something that is arguably not in practice as much as it used to be, I think. But in this medium, in this particular style of show, if you don't have that connection, it's not going to fly. The comedy is not going to fly."
>"So it's got to be rooted in something important, which is us. It's us, our life, our experience, the things we go through. And whether or not we are sort of obedient to the decorative manias of society, that's not as important as long as we maintain our rudder about playing up to the audience and being connected to the human heart, I think we're going to be fine."
>"Everybody's looking for love. Everybody's looking to be appreciated. Everybody's looking to mean something. I don't think that's changed for thousands of years."
