AceShowbiz - It is such unfortunate news for fans as "Last Man Standing" will not rise again. Revival talks between CMT and 20th Century Fox TV reportedly have fallen through, making the canceled ABC comedy unlikely to return to small screen.
CMT, which airs "Last Man Standing" in syndicated repeats, passed on the revival over the cost concerns. According to The Hollywood Reporter, after a long talk to possibly bringing back the comedy on TV, both the network and 20th Century Fox TV couldn't agree on the numbers.
This was not the first failed attempt to bring back the multicamera comedy. Previously, FOX considered to revive the comedy. The network tried to fit the show on its schedule, but to no avail.
ABC canceled "Last Man Standing" after six seasons. Tim Allen claimed that he was blindsided by the network. Fans of the show widely expressed outrage, alleging that the cancellation was heavily affected by Tim's openly right-wing views and the show's conservative political tones. ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey, however, denied the allegation and said that it was, instead, a scheduling decision.
