It costars Jack Cutmore-Scott (Oppenheimer) as Frasier’s son, Freddy; Nicholas Lyndhurst (Only Fools and Horses) as Frasier’s old college buddy-turned-university professor, Alan; Toks Olagundoye (Castle) as Olivia, Alan’s colleague and head of the university’s psychology department; Jess Salgueiro (Workin’ Moms) as Freddy’s roommate, Eve; and Anders Keith as Frasier’s nephew, David.

Frasier premieres in the US and Canada with two episodes on Thursday, October 12, exclusively on Paramount+, with the series debuting in all other Paramount+ international markets on Friday, October 13. New episodes will drop weekly on Thursdays in the US and Canada, and on Fridays internationally.
