Could Last Man Standing be the second un-cancelled TV show of the month?
While resurrection at ABC is a non-starter, studio 20th Century Fox Television presidents Jonnie Davis and Howard Kurtzman told Variety they are hoping to shop Season 7 to other outlets, despite a knock-back from sibling Fox:
“We’re starting to explore that. If it’s not going to go forward at ABC, of course Jonnie and I are hopeful that we can find another home for it.”
As for ABC, the duo claimed to be ‘surprised’ by the network’s decision to axe the show:
“That’s the one that’s really an open sore right now,” Davis said. Kurtzman added, “We really were expecting a pickup. The fact that we didn’t get a pickup was a surprise and a disappointment. I think no one was more disappointed than Tim Allen, such a huge star with such a huge following.”
Will Last Man Standing rise again for Season 7, or remain in the depths of cancellation hell? Stay tuned…
