Reboots are on the rise. Shows that have long sat in syndication are getting new life leading many fans to speculate about when their favorite 90’s TV sitcom will come back on the air. While any show could be brought back, one old-school favorite is gaining interest and may even be in the works: “Home Improvement.” Tim Allen, the once and possibly future star of the show added fuel to that fire when he told ET that he would be “very interested in that idea.” Get out your power-tools, folks. This is happening.
Allen is still a little hurt that his family sitcom “Last Man Standing” was cancelled after it’s sixth season. Allen and fans are at odds with the studio if the cancellation was due to Allen’s conservative politics or low ratings.
But now that Allen is available, many have wondered if Tim “Tool Man” Taylor could make a return to the small screen.
“It has been floated. And more [cast members] than I would have expected said, ‘Yeah, that would be cool to do it years later,’ like Roseanne.”
I am skeptical for a show deciding to reboot because another popular 90’s show is doing it instead of it, you know, being a good idea. Who knows, the “Roseanne” reboot may be a total flop. Even so, Allen isn’t dismissing the idea.
“It’s like having a new dog and now to go back to the old dog? I don’t know. I like both characters, but yeah, I’d be very interested in that idea.”
Look, Tim, I don’t know your view of dogs but old dogs are great. Shoot, I’d take my old dog, Rooster, back in a heartbeat. Who doesn’t want to go back to one of their old dogs?
Suddenly, I don’t trust this guy.
