TIM ALLEN ON ‘LAST MAN STANDING’ SEASON BEING CUT SHORT DUE TO CORONAVIRUS: ‘IT WAS REAL PECULIAR’

Just last month the comedian spoke with Fox News about the show, in which he plays a father of three. In real life, Allen has two daughters, Katherine 31, and Elizabeth, 11.

The comedian admitted he and his castmates have found it “startling” that they’ve already completed eight seasons of the show. His hit sitcom “Home Improvement” lasted a total of eight seasons.

When speaking to us, Allen said the “Last Man Standing” cast has mirrored his own life, in that it’s like a family.

“Although [the ‘Last Man Standing’ cast] doesn’t replace the wonderful the beautiful ‘Home Improvement’ family that I still am close to, this family is now, we’re empty nesters,” Allen explained to Fox News. “Everybody at the show … has grown up …”

Specifically, he said the one episode where Eve’s [Kaitlyn Dever] room gets an update reminded him of his oldest daughter growing up.

“You know, your kid’s not coming back. They’ll visit, they’re not going anywhere, but they’re not coming back to the bedroom they grew up in.”

“The Resident and Last Man Standing are such important parts of Fox, and we’re so pleased they will be returning next season,” said Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn. “We want to thank all of the writers, actors, directors, producers and talented crews for both of these shows, and, of course, our friends and producing partners at 20th Century Fox Television.”
