Tim Allen talks to Cast About Home Improvement Revival Series

Tim Allen, while promoting the upcoming second season of The Santa Clauses, spilled the beans that he’s thinking about stepping back into the shoes of Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor. You know, the role that made him a big deal in the ’90s during the eight-season run of Home Improvement. The cast from the show included Richard Karn, Patricia Richardson, Taran Noah Smith, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, and Zachery Ty Bryan.

Remember Home Improvement? Tim Taylor, the not-so-handy handyman with a DIY TV show. It was basically a comedy show where Tim’s buddy (Karn) had to swoop in and save the day from Tim’s blunders. And, of course, we got to see Tim’s wife (Richardson) holding down the fort at home.

So, in a recent chat, Allen let it slip that he’s been tossing around the idea of bringing back the Tool Man. He hinted at a follow-up that could have a multi-generational vibe. Allen told Deadline, “I see Richard Karn a lot, and I talk to the boys…and I’m there as one of their friends.”

“We keep talking about [a spinoff]. 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. Like, if all of them had children, and I’m a grandparent. Home Re-Improvement or something like that. It’s come up.”

For now, we’ll have to put a Home Improvement spinoff on the shelf until we can get to Allen’s latest show, The Santa Clauses. In Season Two of “The Santa Clauses,” the Calvin family finds themselves once again at the North Pole.

Scott Calvin, having put his retirement on hold due to the absence of a suitable successor in the first season, resumes his jolly duties as Santa Claus. With Christmas saved and behind them, Scott shifts his attention to training his son Cal, grooming him to eventually step into the role of Santa Claus and carry on the “family business.”

Allen is also busy with a Toy Story 5 project that was announced by Disney CEO Bob Iger last year. Are you ready for the tools to come out again? With Tim Allen hinting at a potential Home Improvement Revival Series, the prospect of more Tool Time antics is on the horizon. Stay tuned for updates on this exciting project and more buzzworthy entertainment news – because it looks like the Tool Man might be making a comeback!
