One of Tim Allen’s former co-stars made this surprising comment about Home Improvement returning

Reboots and remakes are all the rage in Hollywood these days.

Fans have been wondering if one of the most popular sitcoms from the ‘90s could be next.

And one of Tim Allen’s former co-stars made this surprising comment about Home Improvement returning.

The ABC hit Home Improvement was one of the most beloved sitcoms of the 1990s.

Starring comedian Tim Allen as Tim “The Toolman” Taylor it chronicled the life of the Taylor family in suburban Detroit, Michigan.

The show’s finale aired in 1999, but with the never ending stream of remakes and reboots coming out of Hollywood there is the possibility it could find new life.

Tim Allen floats the idea of bringing back Home Improvement 

During an interview with The Messenger last year, Allen said that he had spoken with some of his former co-stars about an updated version of Home Improvement.

“I see Richard Karn a lot,” Allen said.

Karn played Allen’s sidekick Al Borland on the show.

“And I talk to the boys . . . and I’m there as one of their friends. We keep talking about [a spinoff],” Allen added.

A new Home Improvement series would focus on the fictional Taylor family’s now grown-up children.

“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,” Allen explained. “Like if all of them had children, and I’m a grandparent. Home Re-Improvement or something like that. It’s come up.”

A remake would join the growing list of 1990s sitcoms like Saved by the Bell, The Fresh of Prince of Bel Air, and Roseanne to get remade or rebooted for modern audiences.

Home Improvement star weighs in on a potential remake

Actress Patricia Richardson – who played Allen’s wife Jill on the show – poured cold water on the idea of bringing back Home Improvement.

She was asked about the possibility during an interview on the Back To The Best podcast.

“It was so weird,” Richardson said. “I would hear he was coming out publicly and saying this stuff about everyone was on board to do a Home Improvement reunion, but he never asked me and he never asked Jonathan. I called Jonathan one day and said, ‘Has he asked you about this? He went, ‘No.’ So why is he saying everyone is on board when he hasn’t talked to you or me?”

Richardson was referring to actor Jonathan Taylor Thomas who played Randy Taylor – the middle son on the show.

She noted that one of the actors on the show, Earl Hindman, who played the Taylors’ neighbor Wilson passed away in 2003.

“Taran hasn’t acted since he left the show,” Richarson added. “He’s not an actor anymore. And Jonathan’s not really interested in acting. He wants to direct and write. I mean, Zach is now a felon.”

Taran Noah Smith – who played the youngest son, Mark Taylor – left acting to pursue a business career.

Zachery Ty Bryan who played Brad Taylor has had various run-ins with the law over the years.

It seems Tim Allen could be facing some serious obstacles to bringing the beloved sitcom back to television.
