The possible reboot is expected to see Frasier in a new city, which could play into the finale, which saw the title character leave Seattle for Chicago to follow girlfriend Charlotte (Laura Linney).

Cheer" would be the latest in a lengthy list of rebooted ’90s shows, including Murphy Brown, Roseanne and Will & Grace.
