Fans of Tim Allen’s sitcom Last Man Standing can celebrate, as the Fox network announced it will pick up the show for a new season. Originally on ABC, the show was cancelled in May of 2017, which caused an uproar, with fans claiming it was due to Tim Allen’s politically conservative outlook.
When the show was cancelled by ABC, Allen tweeted he was “stunned and blindsided by the network I called home for the last six years.” Now, he says the renewal of his show by Fox was so exciting, “I did a fist pump so hard I threw my back out.”
The show features Allen’s character Mike Baxter as a man trying to maintain his manliness in a house dominated by women: his wife (played by Nancy Travis) and three daughters. All of the key actors have signed on for the Fox production.
