In light of the success of ABC’s Roseanne reboot, FOX will revive Tim Allen’s sitcom, the Last Man Standing too.
As Page Six reported year after its controversial cancellation at ABC, the Allen-fronted comedy is poised to be resurrected by Fox for the 2018-19 TV season, TVLine has learned. Allen has, per sources, signed a deal for a potential Season 7 and conversations are underway with key cast members and EPs from the original incarnation to join him.
ABC canceled the series in early May — sparking a boycott and backlash — after six successful seasons, in which it was nominated for two Primetime Emmys. The cancellation inspired a viral Change.org petition, which has collected more than 410,000 signatures. Speculation swirled for months over reports that 20th Century Fox and later CMT would become the new network home for the Last Man Standing.
The recent runaway success of ABC’s “Roseanne” revival prompted 20th to reassess “Last Man’s” viability, and its sister network — which could use a comedy hit — was the logical home.
The show was one of the few broadcast network sitcoms to appeal to conservative, blue-collar America, a true oddity since Allen has noted in interviews that the program was written by liberal writers.
Last Man was ABC’s second-highest-rated comedy behind Modern Family, averaging, in its sixth season, an impressive 6.41 million live viewers.
So what I can tell you is that page six confirmed that the show is officially back!
Are you glad to that Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing is back?
