'Last Man Standing' Star Tim Allen Teases the Show's Return

LMS just might be a reality.

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. The comedy also has a legitimate beef with being canceled as it was ABC's second-most-watched sitcom with DVR numbers factored in, and its total number of viewers would have easily made it Fox's most-watched comedy by far.

Allen's tweet may be premature, as a source close to production told Fox News rumors of the show's return are highly "speculative".

ABC's top exec, Channing Dungey, disputed the claim, however, insisting the sitcom was axed after "we made the decision not to continue with comedies on Friday", TV Line reported. If the show was able to match those numbers, which would be likely given the fan interest in its return, it would rank among Fox's highest-rated shows. 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. A report by Fox News provided most of the information presented in this article.

"It is 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", the petition said.

After ABC's success with the reboot of "Roseanne", which features a pro-Trump character, calls for the network to bring back "Last Man Standing" were revived.

Allen played patriarch conservative Mike Baxter, the father of three girls and a sporting goods store marketing executive.

Allen has expressed gratitude for the fan encouragement he has felt for the show.

Tim Allen tweeted that "Last Man Standing" may be coming back. "He is mitigated on the show by a family of women who had a difference of opinions, but [Mike Baxter] was a likable guy and a principled guy about work and ethics and all this stuff, I think".
