Grammer had said the reboot was “ready to go” in 2019, eyeing a mid-2020 release date. There is no confirmed release date for the new project yet.

“The first principle is that it is a different story, basically,” the actor had also said of the comeback in February 2019. “The same group of characters, but in a different setting. Something has changed in their lives.”
