Frasier is the name of a sitcom which is the spin-off and successor to Cheers. In it, Frasier Crane moves to Seattle to pursue a job as a radio psychiatrist. The show consists of him, his father Martin (John Mahoney), brother Niles (David Hyde Pierce), Martin's physical therapist Daphne Moon (Jane Leeves), and the producer of his show Roz Doyle (Peri Gilpin). The sitcom lasted 11 seasons from 1993 to 2004 and received a revival/sequel sitcom of the same name in 2023. The revival/sequel picks up 20 years later and sees Frasier Crane move back to Boston shortly after ending a 20 year love relationship in Chicago and the recent funeral of his father Martin to be closer to his now adult son Frederick Crane.

Although all living major characters of Cheers had an appearance in the original Frasier sitcom (except Kristie Alley), the only one that appears in more than one episode is Frasier's ex-wife Lilith. Lilith is also currently the only living major character from Cheers to appear in the revival/sequel sitcom.
