Good news for fans of Tim Allen as his return to the television screens with his popular show looks certain.


The television network WGN America has decided to revive Tim Allen's popular show Last Man Standing after ABC trashed it the previous year in 2017.

According to American Web Media, Allen alleged the network of canceling the show because of his conservative viewpoint, although ABC has denied all such allegations.

Following the big success of Roseanne, an arguably pro-Trump show, Fox network was also intent on bringing back the popular show in its network.

However, WGN America came out with the big announcement that they were taking Allen's show back and would broadcast completely new episodes from coming May.


The network took to Twitter to share the news and wrote, 'We are excited to announce that Last Man Standing is coming to WGN America starting May 2nd.'


The fans of Allen are definitely delighted by the news. Speaking with their voice, the president of WGN America, Gavin Harvey, said, "We're very excited to welcome comedy mega-star Tim Allen and his hit sitcom Last Man Standing to WGN America."

Harvey further stated that the network decided to bring the show because they realized their audience "love a good laugh" and the show would be a welcome addition to the "momentum" that has made WGN America the nation's growing television network.

In Last Man Standing, Allen stars as Mike Baxter, a politically and socially conservative American, whom fans absolutely love and adore. Fans were outraged when last year ABC decided to shut down the show, the source revealed.

WGN America is now hoping to gain some of the viewers who have been 'flocking' to Roseanne with the opportunity quite open because of the lack of shows that represent the people who voted for Trump.

The source reported that Roseanne's first two episodes alone gained over 18.1 million viewers making it one of the highest-rated shows of the year.
