Will there be a future for Last Man Standing? Earlier, we reported CMT was in talks to pick up the cancelled ABC TV show. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, CMT has reached a decision regarding the Tim Allen sitcom.
In May, ABC cancelled Last Man Standing after six seasons. The comedy centers on Mike Baxter (Tim Allen), a marketing director for the Outdoor Man sporting goods stores who lives with his wife and three daughters. The cast also includes Nancy Travis, Amanda Fuller, Molly Ephraim, Kaitlyn Dever, Christoph Sanders, Hector Elizondo, Flynn Morrison, Jordan Masterson, and Jonathan Adams.
Despite its record of good ratings and successful syndication performance, CMT has passed on Last Man Standing. According to THR, talks between the network and the series’ studio, 20th Century Fox Television, broke down over the show’s cost.
However, the cast of Last Man Standing are still under contract through the end of June, so there’s still a slim chance that the sitcom could be saved.
