The ABC family sitcom Last Man Standing, which starred Tim Allen as a man who is outnumbered by his wife and three daughters, may be coming back to television.
The series was cancelled last May despite positive viewer ratings for unspecified reasons. Controversy followed the show’s cancellation, with many viewers and critics questioning whether the show may have been cancelled due to Allen’s conservative political views.
Allen remarked months after the show’s cancellation: “There is nothing more dangerous, especially in this climate, than a funny, likable conservative character.”
Allen has also commented on how conservatives are often treated in Hollywood:
“What I find odd in Hollywood is that they didn’t like Trump because he was a bully. But if you had any kind of inkling that you were for Trump, you got bullied for doing that. And it gets a little bit hypocritical to me.”
The show is set to be resurrected by Fox for the 2018-19 TV season, according to TVLine.com.
Allen is reportedly already on board and the network is now in the process of signing other cast members from the original series.
