Fox in Talks to Reboot "Last Man Standing"
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.
According to ProgrammingInsider, 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 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.
