Tim Allen has been pumped up since getting served the good news that his hit show ‘Last Man Standing’ is cleared return back to the national air waves, primetime on FOX.
Allen recently sat down with Closer Weekly to discuss some of the questions surrounding the relaunch of his show. And what Allen revealed is definitely not good for anyone on the left, who hoped he might tame down politics in his new episodes. See Below
As all ‘Last Man Standing’ fans already know, Allen’s character, Mike Baxter, is involved in a chain of sporting goods stores called Outdoor Man in the show. And his character also has shown compassion towards gun rights in America.
Allen hinted that Outdoor Man likely isn’t folding on the selling of guns, as we have seen other retailers do in real life in response to the latest high school shootings.
In his interview, Allen made it clear that his show will likely touch on the issue of gun rights since his character “owns a sporting-goods store that has firearms, so we’re going to have to deal with that somehow.”
Allen also said in his interview that he’s very excited about the return of the show that was controversially cut by ABC because “we have so much left in our tank. There were a lot of stories we hadn’t gotten to.” Continued Below
‘Last Man Standing’ was cut off the air by ABC over a year ago despite its high ratings. Many fans believe the show was dropped because of Allen’s conservative stance, open support for President Trump, and statements he made about Hollywood liberals.
FOX recently went all in on new the venture with Tim Allen after seeing how well conservative-based sitcom “Roseanne” did on its reboot on ABC, before getting canceled over a controversial tweet sent out by Roseanne. Roseanne later apologized for her comment directed towards Valerie Jarrett. You can read more on that HERE.
According to a report by Conservative Tribune, Gary Newman and Dana Walden, the chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group, said their decision to bring back ‘Last Man Standing’ is a risk worth taking, particularly giving the outpouring of fan support.
The pair said in a statement to FOX News:
“‘Last Man Standing’ ended too soon and the outcry from the fans has been deafening.”
“We’ve wanted to put the show back together since its final taping a year ago, and Tim never gave up hope either. Thanks to its millions of devoted viewers and the irrepressible Tim Allen, we haven’t seen the last of ‘Last Man Standing.’”
The network is set to begin airing new episodes of ‘Last Man Standing’ in the fall.
