The Cheers TV show had a heartwarming reunion at the 2023 Emmy Awards in January 2024. Some of the main cast members, including Ted Danson, Kelsey Grammer, Rhea Perlman, John Ratzenberger, and George Wendt, came together to reminisce about their time on the show. The set was beautifully recreated to resemble the iconic bar we all remember.

Ted Danson: The Calming Presence

Let’s start with the man who portrayed the charming bartender, Sam Malone – Ted Danson. Known for his ability to keep things calm on set, Danson continued to find success after Cheers.

He graced the big screen in beloved movies like “Three Men and a Baby” and entertained TV audiences in shows like “CSI” and “The Good Place.” Fun fact: Danson has been happily married to Mary Steenburgen since 1995.

Shelley Long: From Cheers to Stardom

Next up, we have Shelley Long, who captured our hearts with her portrayal of Diane Chambers. Cheers catapulted her to fame, and she later appeared in hit shows such as “Modern Family.” She even took on the iconic role of Carol Brady in the Brady Bunch movies. Shelley has a daughter named Juliana from her previous marriage.

Rhea Perlman: Cheers and Beyond

Carla Tortelli, played by Rhea Perlman, truly left an unforgettable mark on Cheers. She received multiple Emmy awards for her outstanding performance. Rhea also graced our screens in various other TV shows and movies, including a role in the 2023 Barbie movie. What’s remarkable is her enduring marriage to Danny DeVito, which began in 1982.

His voice brought to life characters we adore, like Hamm from “Toy Story.” John has been happily married to Julie Blichfeldt since 2012.

George Wendt: The Beloved Regular

George Wendt, the actor behind Norm Peterson, started with a small role in the Cheers pilot but quickly became a fan favorite. He received six Emmy nominations for his portrayal of Norm. George also showcased his talent in other TV shows, movies, and even Broadway performances. Remarkably, he has been happily married to Bernadette Birkett since 1978.

Kelsey Grammer: The Psychiatrist with a Spinoff

Dr. Frasier Crane, portrayed by Kelsey Grammer, was so popular that he even got his own successful spinoff show, “Frasier.” Kelsey’s remarkable acting skills earned him multiple Emmy awards, both for Cheers and Frasier. Interestingly, Kelsey has been married four times and is the proud father of seven children.

Remembering Nicholas Colasanto – The Beloved Coach

Sadly, we must remember the late Nicholas Colasanto, who portrayed Coach Ernie Pantusso. He passed away during the show’s run, leaving a void in the hearts of fans. It was Woody Harrelson’s character who stepped in to fill Coach’s shoes and carry on the spirit of the beloved character.
