When Tim Allen’s hit sitcom “Last Man Standing” was abruptly canceled by ABC News, many suspected that the decision was political, given the conservative themes common on the show. The show garnered spectacular ratings for ABC, and the cancellation came just a week after Allen made a public comment about his support of President Trump on Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night show. Ironically, Allen actually warned about the consequences of publicly supporting Trump in Hollywood during those remarks.

“I’m not kidding. You gotta be real careful around here. You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes.” Then he joked, “This is like ‘30s Germany. I don’t know what happened. If you’re not part of the group, ‘You know what we believe is right,’ I go, ‘Well, I might have a problem with that.’”
“Last Man Standing” was eventually picked up by Fox, which will soon air the seventh season of the show. The show will premise on Fox on September 28th, and if you’re a fan, you’ll notice a shakeup with the cast. (RELATED: Tim Allen’s ‘Last Man Standing’ to Return On Fox.)
According to Fox News; “It’s been revealed that two key cast members won’t be making the jump to the new network in Season 7. According to Deadline, series regulars Molly Ephraim and Flynn Morrison, who played Mandy and Boyd Baxter respectively on the show, have chosen not to return. Mandy is the daughter of Tim Allen’s character, while Boyd is his grandson.” Both roles will be recast.

Another actress, Kaitlyn Dever, who played Eve Baxter on the show, also may not return to the show. She’s recently signed on to join a Netflix-produced drama called “Unbelievable,” but is also in negotiations for a recurring role on “Last Man Standing,” if possible.
