A year after it was canceled by ABC, the Tim Allen sitcom “Last Man Standing” has officially been revived by Fox, Deadline reports.
We reported last week that Fox was in talks with the show’s producer 20th Century Fox Television about picking up the series. At the time, the talks were still early — but they’ve already come to fruition.
Deadline reports that Fox has “closed deals” to bring the show back during the 2018-2019 season. It will be the show’s seventh season.
“The bulk of the show’s core cast is back, including Allen, Nancy Travis, Jonathan Adams, Amanda Fuller, Christoph Sanders and Jordan Masterson,” Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva reports, adding: “I hear co-star Hector Elizondo also has a deal in place to come back. His casting is currently in second position to his NBC comedy pilot ‘Guess Who Died.'”
Andreeva notes that “Guess Who Died” is not expected to go forward.
