'Last Man Standing' Revival Eyed at Fox, Tim Allen Officially on Board

Last Man Standing: Will the Cancelled ABC TV Show Be Revived by FOX? Tim Allen's 'Last Man Standing' might be revived at Fox for a season 7

Last Man Standing's cancellation was quite controversial, as it seemed to be a successful show and therefore many could not understand why ABC let it go.

In a tweet, actor Tim Allen teases that "Last Man Standing" could be making a much-desired return to television. LMS just might be a reality.

While on Norm Macdonald Live in September, Allen remarked that, "There is nothing more unsafe to me, especially in this climate, than a amusing, likable conservative". Deadline reports that 20th Century Fox TV is in talks with the network for a new season, which would be its seventh, and Allen has closed a deal to reprise his role as Mike Baxter.

On Thursday, the 64-year-old Allen tweeted, "They heard all your voices people!"

Of course, here's the irony to all of us: ABC now has Roseanne, a series featuring a heavy Donald Trump supporter in Roseanne Barr who has drawn far more attention for her political beliefs than Allen ever did.

"Last Man Standing" was a primetime sitcom on aired on ABC and featured Allen as the lead, a conservative American man. Fox and 20th TV declined comment.

"There's nothing more risky to me, especially in this climate, than a amusing, likable conservative", Allen said while discussing the show's cancellation in an interview a year ago.

The ABC sitcom launched in 2011 but was surprisingly canceled in 2017 despite the show being the second most-watched sitcom in the network's '16/'17 season. While the network never admitted politics had anything to do with the decision to pull the show and even denied politics played a part, Allen (as well as his fans) believed otherwise.

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.
