Tim Allen's "Last Man Standing", canceled past year by ABC, is being resurrected by Fox next season because it's a "great comedy" and not as a conservative statement, Fox executives said Monday. In the series, which will air on Sundays after the network's animated block, Howery has to learn how to adjust to becoming a long-distance dad while jumping back into the dating pool, not to mention beginning a quest to find a new man to cut his hair.
Tim Allen, meanwhile, logged an appearance at Fox's presentation Monday afternoon at New York's Beacon Theatre.
"Last Man Standing" was canceled in 2017 after six seasons on ABC, a decision that Allen, one of the few outspoken Republicans in Hollywood, claimed was a personal attack.
BACK FOR MORE: "9-1-1", "Empire", "Star", "Family Guy", "The Four: Battle for Stardom", "The Gifted", "Gotham", "Hell's Kitchen", "The Orville", "The Resident", "The Passage", "Proven Innocent", "The Simpsons", "So You Think You Can Dance", "Beat Shazam", "Gordon Ramsay's 24 Hours To Hell & Back", "Love Connection", "Masterchef", "Masterchef Junior" and "Showtime at the Apollo". "Now we get the news from Fox that it's time to get back out on that diamond - hell yes, I'm excited!" And then later on in the conversation: Why'd you rescue Last Man Standing?
The network was also asked about reviving the conservative-leaning traditional sitcom Last Man Standing, which ran for years on ABC until being axed last year.
"I'm not sure that cancellation really had anything to do with politics", he said.

It also came just hours after President Donald Trump announced the withdrawal of the USA from the Iran nuclear deal. In strikes near the capital on Wednesday, the Observatory said at least 15 were killed, including eight Iranians.
Nancy Travis, who plays Vanessa Baxter, retweeted Allen on Saturday, adding, "Time for a family reunion - Thank You Fans and Fox #lastmanstandingisback". "Oh, s-t, I said ass". That rumor proved to be true.
"We wanted to give 'Bob's Burgers, ' the Emmy-winning huge performer for us, the opportunity to have a plum time period", she said. Walden noted Last Man Standing delivered about 8 million viewers every week on ABC with the network giving the show minimal promotion (for all its critical acclaim Brooklyn Nine-Nine, it must be noted, was averaging less than 3 million viewers). "It had nothing to do with Roseanne that we were interested in the show in the first place".
Walden praised the cast and writing of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" but said that the decision not to renew it for another season came down to scheduling and being unable to put it on Sunday prime time, where it performed best.
"And the show never really delves deeply into political viewers". With our increased investment in football, we're going to use the powerful platform of the NFL to launch our new comedies.
"We're really happy that it's found a new home", she said. We kind of assumed it would. Let us know in the comments down below!
