Dr. Crane first starred in the series Cheers, in the lively city of Boston. From there, his journey continued with his own spin-off series, set in his hometown of Seattle, where Frasier was set.
The newly rebooted show sees Dr Frasier Crane back in his hometown of Boston, where he has "new challenges to face, new relationships to forge and an old dream or two to finally fulfil".
The casting of Lyndhurst comes after Kelsey once declared the British actor as "one of the funniest people" he has worked with.
And Lyndhurst isn't the only Brit to join the cast, Frasier's son Freddy will be portrayed by the talented British actor Jack Cutmore-Scott, known for his work in the US crime show, Deception.
Alongside the pictures of Nicholas Lyndhurst, Paramount+ has also released a new version of the show's iconic theme tune, rewritten to reflect Frasier's next stage in life.
