Tim Allen Eyeing Return to TV With Reboot of Last Man Standing

Last Man Standing

The show's studio, 20th Century Fox TV, has been speaking with the cast and creative team, and Allen is said to have signed on for the potential revival.

As it is, Last Man Standing going over to Fox does make a lot of sense given that the studio and the network share such a close relationship - though with Disney purchasing much of the company, we do wonder once again if things could've been different and the show could've headed back to ABC to capitalize on Roseanne ratings. Travis stars in the upcoming Netflix comedy series The Kominsky Method while Elizondo is a lead of the pilot Guess Who Died, which is in contention at NBC. Politics aside, you have to think that if that network had paired up Roseanne and Last Man Standing they would have one of the most-formidable family-comedy pairs in all of television. LMS just might be a reality. "Keep it up. Who wants more #LastManStanding?" he tweeted on Thursday.

Allen, a conservative himself who has voiced his support for Trump, played Mike Baxter, who is also politically conservative on the show.

The star of ABC's canceled family comedy Last Man Standing is in talks with Fox to bring the series back for a seventh season, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Six equities research analysts have rated the stock with a buy rating and one has given a strong buy rating to the company. The shares were purchased at an average price of C$45.25 per share, for a total transaction of C$119,912.50.

In May, ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey defended her decision to cancel the show, citing business and scheduling conflicts.

Allen, for his part, asserted that ABC - the current home of ratings juggernaut Roseanne, a much-beloved sitcom about a Trump-supporting blue-collar matriarch and her family - was threatened by having a amusing successful show starring a conservative character.

Allen himself added to the controversy last fall, telling Norm Macdonald Live, "There's nothing more unsafe, especially in this climate, than a amusing, likable conservative".
