When speaking to personssaid Kelsey Grammer: "For a while we wanted to try and bring back the entire cast, the entire legacy cast,', but that all changed when David Hyde Pierce turned down the project. Of course, Pierce Niles Crane continued to play Frasierbut Grammer said: "David basically decided that he wasn't really interested in repeating Niles' performance,' which is certainly fair. When David Hyde Pierce decided not to return for the Frasier revival, Grammer said it benefited the project. "In a very fun way it just took us to a new place,' Grammer said, 'what we originally wanted to do anyway, namely a Fraser third act. It's a whole new life for him."While it might be a little sad not to see Frasier and Niles reunited, it's probably for the best that the show goes its own way.
