The network that canceled Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Last Man on Earth is placing its faith in Tim Allen. Following initial rumors, FOX confirms Allen’s Last Man Standing will return for new episodes after its cancellation at ABC last year.
The specter of Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing rose with the success of ABC’s Roseanne, but the canceled conservative comedy has taken an unexpected turn. Reports indicate FOX may pick up the tab for a seventh season, with Tim Allen and cast back on board.
Strangely enough, Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing may have more twists and turns to its cancellation than six seasons on ABC. The recently-canceled sitcom was negotiating to return on Country Music Television, though the talks have broken down over money.
