Tim Allen's 'Last Man Standing' TV show nears revival, thanks to 'Roseanne'

Tim Allen's 'Last Man Standing' TV show nears revival, thanks to 'Roseanne'”

While fans of Last Man Standing will no doubt be excited about the development, it may disappoint those looking forward to a possible Home Improvement revival, which Allen had voiced interest in earlier this year. Discussions are also underway with producers and stars from the former ABC comedy to return.

Tim Allen reveals a reboot of "Last Man Standing" could "be a reality" thanks to the supportive fans!

Allen's tweet may be premature, as a source close to production told Fox News rumors of the show's return are highly "speculative". Conservative fans were far more upfront, launching a petition to bring back "a show that appeals to a broad swath of Americans who find very few shows that extol the virtues with which they can identify; namely conservative values".

20th Century Fox Television declined to comment.

The series was cancelled last May despite positive viewer ratings for unspecified reasons. This unusual scrapping led viewers to wonder if its cancellation had to do with it starring right-leaning Tim Allen and his conservative character Mike Baxter.

"Politics had absolutely nothing to do with it. we have actors on our shows who have all sorts of different political views", ABC's president of entertainment, Channing Dungey, stated at the time.

Allen tweeted to his more than 280,000 followers on Thursday.

In summer 2016, CMT was chewing on whether or not to rescue "Last Man Standing" from the depths of cancellation, but it was not meant to be.

Allen remarked months after the show's cancellation: "There is nothing more unsafe, especially in this climate, than a amusing, likable conservative character". Once Upon a Time was never able to draw almost as many viewers as its time slot predecessor and will end after seven seasons.
