Tim Allen Reveals 'Last Man Standing' Might Make A Comeback

Tim Allen reveals a reboot of "Last Man Standing" could "be a reality" thanks to the supportive fans! It's beginning to appear so.

When Last Man Standing was cancelled by ABC a year ago, it came as a surprise to both Tim Allen and his legions of fans as ratings wise, it was ABC's second-most-watched comedy.

With the successful revival of "Roseanne", many fans of "Last Man Standing" are hoping TV executives take the hint and renew the show after it was canceled in 2017.

"Last Man Standing" followed the adventures of Mike Baxter (Tim Allen), a father of three who tries to keep hold of his old school values and machismo in an increasingly politically correct and soft world.

Allen has not been shy about his theory the original show was axed because of its conservative point-of-view, saying previous year he wanted his character on the show to be like Archie Bunker played by Carroll O'Connor on "All in the Family".

Even in its sixth season, the show was the second-highest rated sitcom on ABC, making it's cancellation something of a surprise, and the reasons behind the decision were somewhat complex.




Tim Allen suggested on Twitter that his hit sitcom may be returning.

According to TV Line, cable network CMT had been in preliminary talks with owner 20th Century Fox TV to rescue the series, but those talks eventually fell apart over money. So it came down to a matter of financials.

ABC continually rebuffed the assertions (made by Allen and fans, alike) that LMS had been axed due to the political views of the show's lead.

"But there is nothing more unsafe, especially in this climate, than a amusing, likable conservative character", the actor added.

It was in May of 2016 that ABC chose to ax The Last Standing.
