‘Frasier’ Alums Dan Butler & Edward Hibbert To Reprise Roles In Season 2 Of Revival

In Season 2 of the Paramount+ series Frasier, fans of the original series will see the return of Dan Butler and Edward Hibbert reprising the roles of Bob “Bulldog” Briscoe and Gil Chesterton, respectively, in guest-starring roles. Production is currently underway in Los Angeles.

Season 2 is stacking up its cast with the return of Peri Gilpin as Roz Doyle and Greer Grammer, who will play Roz’s daughter Alice. Patricia Heaton will have a guest-starring arc in the role of bartender Holly, who is described as a down-to-earth and unpretentious Boston native who is openly mocking of overly-intellectual types. Yvette Nicole Brown and Amy Sedaris will also appear in Season 2.

Frasier continues to follow Frasier Crane (Grammer) in the next chapter of his life after he returns to Boston to face new challenges, forge new relationships, and — with hope — finally fulfill an old dream or two.

The series also stars Jack Cutmore-Scott, Nicholas Lyndhurst, Toks Olagundoye, Jess Salgueiro and Anders Keith. It comes from writers Chris Harris and Joe Cristalli, who executive produce with Grammer, Tom Russo, and Jordan McMahon. Frasier is produced by CBS Studios in association with Grammer’s Grammnet NH Productions and distributed by Paramount Global Content Distribution outside of the Paramount+ markets.
