Tim Allen’s conservative-themed situation-comedy will be back on TV next season.

“Last Man Standing,” which was canceled last May after six seasons on ABC, will get a new lease on life on Fox, the New York Post reported Thursday.

The Page Six column reported that Mr. Allen’s show will return to Fox for the 2018-19 season.

“Allen has, per sources, signed a deal for a potential Season 7 and conversations are underway with key cast members and EPs from the original incarnation to join him,” Page Six wrote.

Last year’s cancellation prompted charges of ideological censorship in liberal Hollywood, with Mr. Allen, an outspoken conservative, saying then that “there’s nothing more dangerous, especially in this climate, than a funny, likable conservative.” ABC denied those charges then.

However, ABC hit pay dirt earlier this year with its reboot of “Rosanne,” which proved a smashing success among conservative viewers. Page Six speculated that Mr. Allen “can probably thank Roseanne for this.”
