Tim Allen's 'Last Man Standing' Will Not Be Revived by CMT

Fans of the Tim Allen series Last Man Standing who were hoping for the show to be picked up elsewhere following ABC’s cancellation will be upset by this news.

CMT was in serious talks to revive the series for multiple seasons, but the deal is off the table due to the cost issues, according to THR.

The network is already the home for the show’s syndicated repeats, so it would make sense for it to pick up the show for new episodes in the future.

If the deal went through, it would be the second time the network saved an ABC show from cancellation following Nashville.

'Last Man Standing' in Talks for Revival at CMT

Last Man Standing may be returning to TV!

CMT is in the preliminary talks to revive Tim Allen‘s canceled ABC comedy, THR reports.

According the reports, the network is in the very early stages of negotiating a price for the expensive show that was canceled by ABC back in May after six seasons.

It is also unclear how many episodes the potential revival season of Last Man Standing would get if it was to get picked up.

The comedy series wouldn’t be the first series that CMT picked up after it was axed by ABC. Last May, the network picked up Nashville for at least two more seasons.

'Last Man Standing' May Move to Another Network

Fans of Tim Allen‘s sitcom Last Man Standing can hold out some hope of the series getting another season as the show’s studio plans on shopping it to new networks.

20th Century Fox Television produces the comedy and studio presidents Jonnie Davis and Howard Kurtzman have revealed plans to seek a new home for the show, which was just canceled by ABC.

“That’s the one that’s really an open sore right now,” Davis told Variety. Kurtzman added, “We really were expecting a pickup. The fact that we didn’t get a pickup was a surprise and a disappointment. I think no one was more disappointed than Tim Allen, such a huge star with such a huge following.”

“We’re starting to explore that,” Kurtzman added when asked if they’d shop the show to new networks. “If it’s not going to go forward at ABC, of course Jonnie and I are hopeful that we can find another home for it.”
