Two of the stars of a spinoff from a long long long long long long long running network show, would probably agree to do another spinoff.
They just won’t want to star in it together.

A Frasier Revival Starring Kelsey Grammer Is Happening
It’s been more than 15 years since Frasier went off the air. Arguably the most successful spin-off in television history, the show followed psychiatrist, radio host, and former Cheers regular Frasier Crane, played by Kelsey Grammer, as he navigated life in his childhood home of Seattle.
Now, Paramount+ has confirmed that Grammer will return to his iconic character. Here’s what we know so far about the reboot.
“My hope is that we can bring it back,” he said back in 2019.
“We’re shopping for the right idea because I don’t think we should just pick up where we left off. Will and Grace has done a continuation, which is like the next day after they were last on the air–they picked up right where they left off. I don’t think that’s appropriate for Frasier,” he explained to This Morning.
“He was leaving town at the end of the show previously, he was going to go and explore his life in Chicago with his new lady love. Whether that went badly or it went swimmingly, who knows, these are all themes we need to settle on and figure out what he’s going to do next.”
In November 2019, Grammer revealed that while he had approved a tentative story for the show, they had yet to secure a network.
“We’ve got it hatched. We’ve hatched the plan, what we think is the right way to go,” he said, during an appearance on In Depth With Graham Bensinger.
“We’re sort of on standby a little bit. Working out a couple of possible network deals that we’re circling. Frasier is sort of in a second position to that at this point. So there’s still stuff going on. But a revisit to Frasier, Frasier’s world is
I think definitely going to come.”
The revival could serve as a tribute to the late John Mahoney, who played Frasier’s father, Martin Crane, on the original series. – Source
