The show is far from a done-deal, but talks are happening, according to The Hollywood Reporter. One point of discussion is how to make the show more affordable to produce, as CMT is a smaller network.
Insiders said multiple options are on the table for the series including a short-order run or a multi-season deal. The show's writers have been contacted about a possible return, but no other details have been made available.
An executive said at the time, "Last Man Standing was a challenging one for me because it was a steady performer in the ratings, but once we made the decision not to continue with comedies on Fridays, that was where we landed."
"Stunned and blindsided by the network I called home for the last six years," Allen said.0comments
