Actor Tim Allen sent out a Tweet Thursday suggesting his canceled hit TV series "Last Man Standing" may return to cable. Discussions are also underway with producers and stars from the former ABC comedy to return. This unusual scrapping led viewers to wonder if its cancellation had to do with it starring right-leaning Tim Allen and his conservative character Mike Baxter.
Of course, here's the irony to all of us: ABC now has Roseanne, a series featuring a heavy Donald Trump supporter in Roseanne Barr who has drawn far more attention for her political beliefs than Allen ever did.
While Allen never mentioned politics as a main factor, he did voice his displeasure with the unexpected cancellation previous year. Fox and 20th TV declined comment.
Allen has not been shy about his theory the original show was axed because of its conservative point-of-view, saying previous year he wanted his character on the show to be like Archie Bunker played by Carroll O'Connor on "All in the Family".

Miami Dolphins Trade for Spence
Detroit opted to deal him instead, and now Spence joins former Lions defensive line coach Kris Kocurek in Miami . Spence was a former fourth-round pick by the Buccaneers in the 2013 NFL Draft.
ABC canceled the series last May - a boycott and backlash quickly followed- after six successful seasons, in which it was nominated for two Primetime Emmys.
"There's nothing more unsafe, especially in this climate, than a amusing, likable conservative", Allen told "Norm MacDonald Live" last fall.
ABC denied politics played a role in the cancellation.
It was in May of 2016 that ABC chose to ax The Last Standing.
Allen, for his part, asserted that ABC - the current home of ratings juggernaut Roseanne, a much-beloved sitcom about a Trump-supporting blue-collar matriarch and her family - was threatened by having a amusing successful show starring a conservative character.
