LOOK: Home Improvement Gets a Reboot?!
Reboot gets a reboot, Lost In Space is back in April & Bill Nye is cool again… WHAT IS HAPPENING?! WHAT YEAR IS IT?!
I really shouldn’t act so shocked about this; we’ve been seeing our favorite shows from the 90s get reboots all over the place! Fuller House, Rosanne is coming back as well so WHY NOT add Tim-The Toolman-Taylor to the mix! Now, I should say, that this isn’t 100% happening, but with streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Crackle, Amazon Prime and the list goes on, it’s not out of the realm of possibilities to see this actually happen… especially seeing as Tim Allan and the original cast of Home Improvement are on board. I mean… it’s not like any of them are busy at the moment.
“I still miss Last Man Standing. We didn’t get our seventh year. I adored that show. It’s like having a new dog and now to go back to the old dog? I don’t know. I like both characters, but yeah, I’d be very interested in that idea.”
Tim Allan has said that he’s “VERY INTERESTED” in bringing back the 1991-1999 hit show and that he’s spoken to the other cast members and guess what.. they’re on board too! I mean..when you really think about it, have you heard the name “Jonathan Taylor Thomas” spoken aloud in the past 15 years? Probably not. Lucky for Tim Allan and the creators of the show.. I already know how they can pull off a reboot/reunion!
The Pitch: The Tool-man is gone.. long divorced from Jill… Brad has taken up the mantle and his wife is the new Heidi! Al & Heidi are still around and offer advice and guest on the show from time to time…. Mark is kicking his Meth addiction and Randy is basically the Elon Musk of the family who invents all the new “Binford” tools. The change from the original series is that the “Binfard 5100” series ACTUALLY WORKS! There is no more Wilson, because he has passed, but there’s a new Wilson in town… and you’re not sure who it is right away, but after a few seasons it’s relieved that the NEW Wilson is actually, wait for it… TIM THE TOOL MAN TAYLOR!! That’s right! He was next door, pulling a Mrs. Doubtfire and offering his Son life advice in secret the whole time!
*sniff* It’s such a beautiful story!
