Last Man Standing’ revival: Tim Allen show may find new life at Fox
It looks like Tim Allen show Last Man Standing may be coming back to TV.
Multiple outlets are reporting that 20th Century Fox TV is considering a resurrection of the sitcom, which would be in its seventh season. Some sources claim that series star Allen has already signed a deal for the new season, and other cast members are in talks to return, but that hasn’t been confirmed.
Allen fueled the speculation fire by tweeting to Last Man Standing fans.
On the show, Allen played Mike Baxter, “a quintessential man’s man.” Living at home with his three daughters and his wife, the show centred on Baxter being the only male in an all-female household (except for his oldest daughter’s young son). Baxter is famously old-fashioned with right-leaning values, and this clashed with his female cohabitants. Of course, Baxter also worked at a sporting goods store, surrounded by men, and his day job consisted of selling guns and other outdoorsy items.
