Fox in Talks to Reboot ‘Last Man Standing’

News of the Sitcom's Return is Expected to Be Front and Center at the Fox Upfront on May 15

One year after sitcom “Last Man Standing” was canceled by ABC (despite still respectable ratings), 20th Century Fox TV is reportedly close to signing a deal for its return for a seventh season on sibling Fox. Tim Allen is confirmed to return, while other cast members and creative members are in conversations to participate. But two of those cast members, Nancy Travis and Hector Elizondo, are committed to other multi-camera comedies. Travis is appearing in upcoming Netflix comedy “The Kominsky Method,” while Elizondo is part of the cast of NBC pilot “Guess Who Died.”

Last year’s unexpected cancellation of “Last Man Standing” sparked immediate interest by Fox and cable network CMT. But nothing came of it and the surprise success of the “Roseanne” reboot on ABC has fueled continued interest in its return.

  1. This is a very good decision by FOX as Last Man Standing as they’ve been struggling with comedies for over a decade now and they’ll finally be able to build around a comedy now that has gained popularity in the past year.

  2. I would love a Last Man Standing return, but it’s not going to be good unless everybody returns. I can’t imagine the show without Vanessa and Eve and Mandy and Kristin and Boyd and Ryan. We also need Ed, Boyd, Chuck Larrabee, and of course that lovable Kyle. It wouldn’t be worth it without the full cast. I was very disappointed LMS was canceled, but unfortunately it sounds like some of the cast has moved on.
