Tim Allen Teases Possible Home Improvement Revival





Tim Allen, star of the Disney+ series The Santa Clauses, teased fans by hinting at a possible return of classic ABC sitcom Home Improvement

While promoting the second season of The Santa Clauses, Allen said he’s long discussed the idea of bringing the popular 90s series back for a revival with his former co-stars Zachery Ty Bryan, Johnathan Taylor Thomas, and Taran Noah Smith.

“It’s funny, one of the conversations we’ve had recently is how weird it would be if Home Improvement would be about the kids’ kids,” Allen said in an interview with The Messenger. “Like if all of them had children, and I’m a grandparent. Home Re-Improvement or something like that. It’s come up.”

This isn’t the first time the actor has suggested a revival of the series. During a 2018 interview with E! News. Allen said he considered bringing Tim Taylor out of retirement after the temporary cancellation of another one of his series, Last Man Standing

“I never felt – and it’s come true – that this was done,” Allen told E! News.

At the time, the series would have followed the three sons as property owners in Michigan with Tim and Jill, played by Patricia Richardson. The idea didn’t gain traction, and until now, nothing much came from it even as several other classic sitcoms like Will & Grace and Murphy Brown were being revived.

As another round of reboots makes their way to streaming platforms this year, including Futurama on Hulu and Fraser on Paramount+, audiences are embracing nostalgic series. Whether the show does make a comeback has yet to be seen, although Allen feels the story is not quite complete.

Home Improvement was one of the most-watched sitcoms of the 90s. The series ran for eight seasons from 1991 to 1999, spanning 204 episodes, all of which can be found on Disney+ and Hulu.
