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

The rumors of a "Last Man" second act come as another politically-charged reboot has spelled success for ABC. It's beginning to appear so.

FOX is working on a revival of Last Man Standing with Tim Allen set to return. The irony here is that Disney, ABC's parent company, is set to acquire Fox next year, meaning Last Man Standing will once again be part of the ABC-Disney family. Fox has yet to comment on the matter, but the star took to Twitter to make it clear these talks are indeed happening.

Allen said the voices of the people were heard and asked fans if they wanted the show to come back. LMS just might be a reality", Allen wrote in a recent tweet."Keep it up. 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".

THR adds that ABC may have also been anxious about costs of a seventh season, as it didn't own "Last Man Standing" and Allen would be eligible to renegotiate his contract for more money.

Deadline reports 20th Century Fox TV is in talks with its sibling, Fox Broadcasting Co., for a revival series.

"There's nothing more risky to me, especially in this climate, than a amusing, likable conservative", Allen told the "Norm Macdonald Live" podcast.

Allen starred as conservative-minded father of three who runs a sporting goods store and opines about the modern world, including political topics such as Obamacare and environmental policy.

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.
