Home Improvement star Tim Allen admits he is very interested in giving the 90s sitcom a revival the way others like Roseanne and Full House have.

Later this month, the classic sitcom Roseanne is officially coming back to television. Featuring all of the original cast, it’s as authentic as it gets, serving as a legitimate sequel to the original series. And it’s far from the only one of its type, given the success of Fuller House on Netflix. If sitcom revivals are in right now, might we be seeing even more of them popping up in the future?

Well, if you ask Tim Allen, there’s a good chance we could be seeing more Home Improvement. While he can’t speak for the rest of the cast, Allen told Entertainment Weekly he’s “very interested” in returning to the role. Having played the patriarch of the series, Allen’s involvement seems crucical for a reboot, so if he’s on board, its chances are pretty good.

However, Allen is also still lamenting the demise of his latest sitcom Last Man Standing. The show was suddenly cancelled in 2017, and despite Allen’s best efforts, it never found a home on another network. To him, returning to Home Improvement after what happened with Last Man Standing is a little weird, but he’s still game for the idea.

From the interview:

"“I still miss Last Man Standing. We didn’t get our seventh year. I adored that show. 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.”"
