Season 5 of American comedy series Frasier aired on the NBC television network.

About

The fifth season pulls together a number of threads from earlier, but its major new element is Roz's pregnancy, which comes to light on Halloween.

Picking up where season four ended, Frasier meets a woman named Kelly Easterbrook, who is revealed to be supermodel. Having come off a bad breakup, Kelly requests that Frasier keep their relationship quiet, but he soon discovers that no one believes that he met anyone in Mexico, let alone a supermodel. Ultimately, the relationship ends when Kelly catches Frasier in the act of taking a photo of her while asleep.

Meanwhile, Fraiser’s radio show reaches its landmark 1000th broadcast and KACL management plans to mark the occasion accordingly but a comedy of errors prevents him from even showing up.

Soon after this, the love lives of Martin and Niles begin to crumble: Martin breaks up with Sherry while Niles ends his marriage with Maris for good.

In other events, Niles and Daphne continue their complex pas de deux, Roz gives birth to a baby girl, Martin is reunited with his old police horse Agidies, the Cranes go to a ski lodge where passions soon run wild, Niles sleeps with Lilith, the Cranes are reunited with some of their distant family members (including Martin’s brother, Walt), the Cranes and Roz take a cruise to Alaska where they run into Maris, and in the season finale, Frasier clashes with KACL management and ends up losing his job, as well as those of the other on-air talent.
