Last Man Standing Refuses to Go, May Get Revived at Fox

Compounding the situation was the fact that ABC did not own the rights to "Last Man" - 20th Century Fox, its potential new home, does - and therefore the network would have had to pay that company even more to continue licensing the show.

And Variety reports that even if a deal comes through for Allen, the status of some of the show's original costars is also up in the air, since both Nancy Travis and Hector Elizondo are attached to other projects. It's the second attempt to revive "Last Man Standing"; CMT (which airs reruns of the series) entered talks with 20th previous year but couldn't make a deal work financially. The deal isn't likely to close before the end of 2018.

Allen took to Twitter on Thursday to praise those who raised their voices in protest after the highly-rated comedy wasn't renewed for a seventh season by ABC. "Who wants more [Last Man Standing]?"

Allen has also said his conservative politics played a role in the cancellation, which ABC has denied.

After ABC's success with the reboot of "Roseanne", which features a pro-Trump character, calls for the network to bring back "Last Man Standing" were revived.

Indeed, Last Man Standing was ABC's second-highest-rated comedy behind Modern Family, averaging, in its sixth season, 6.41 million live viewers.

At the time of its cancelation, Allen's political views, which are more conservative than the majority of Hollywood, were considered to be a factor, which Allen didn't dispute, saying, "There's nothing more risky, especially in this climate, than a amusing, likable conservative". "He is mitigated on the show by a family of women who had a difference of opinions, but [Mike Baxter] was a likable guy and a principled guy about work and ethics and all this stuff, I think".
