Freddy’s firefighter calendar photo in the Frasier reboot has finally been revealed, and it isn’t as cool as he describes it to be. Frasier Crane’s primary goal in returning to Boston is to fix his relationship with his grown-up son. While the Frasier reboot misses the original Seattle crew, it is still able to lean into its familial elements thanks to the father-and-son dynamic of the pair — something that is inspired by Frasier’s relationship with Martin in the original show. However, to make sure that the revival also appeals to a brand-new generation, Paramount+ also updates it with new components.

One of the fresh bits that the Frasier reboot has that isn’t inspired by its predecessor is Freddy’s double duty being one of the Boston Fire Department’s calendar models. His promotional image is finally revealed via the official Frasier Instagram account.

The Frasier reboot episode 4 showed Freddy getting ready for the photo shoot, but the image was never revealed. Subsequently, he brought it up in episode 5, but he made it sound like he looked very cool in it, which he clearly wasn’t.


Why Freddy’s Firefighter Job Is Important In The Frasier Reboot

Freddy’s character is clearly inspired by Martin. Both men are civil servants, a firefighter and a police officer, respectively. Admittedly, Freddy following in the footsteps of his grandfather was quite surprising, especially considering that he is the only child of renowned psychiatrists, Frasier Crane and Lilith Sternin. In addition to that, Freddy also showed no signs of wanting to deviate from his parents’ paths during his appearances on the old show. However, as established in the Frasier reboot, he realized that he felt out of place at Harvard, so he dropped out.

While Martin is the opposite of Frasier, Freddy functions as the anti-stereotype that the host-turned-Harvard educator tends to perpetuate. Despite being dissimilar to him and Lilith, Freddy is highly intellectual. In fact, he can go toe-to-toe with his dad on just about any topic, as evidenced by Mahoney’s quiz night results in episode 4. Frasier and Niles usually look down on people who aren’t in the same perceived social standing as they are, but Freddy squashes those preconceived notions in the Frasier reboot.

Considering Frasier’s age in the reboot, he only has one final act left. This means that the Frasier reboot needs to give him a definitive ending, unlike the original series that left his fate hanging. On top of that priority list is for him to finally be able to mend his fractured relationship with Freddy, and the only way to do that is to finally acknowledge Freddy’s achievements, even though he didn’t follow in his parents’ path.

Season 1 of the Frasier reboot received a 10-episode order.
