Many of us who grew up in the '90s fondly remember watching Home Improvement. Whether it was the shared crush on Jonathan Taylor Thomas that me and my childhood best friend Melissa shared, or the hilarious interaction between Tim and Al, or the mystery of never seeing Wilson's face over the fence, the show was an undeniable classic of the decade. After eight years of success, Tim Allen is now proposing a reboot of the series, and honestly, it's not the worst idea.
1. Pretty Much Everything Is Being Rebooted These Days
The current trend of reviving old pop culture favorites is not my favorite, but I recognize that it's happening. Sometimes it's best to let things end on a high note, and focus on the new, original stories that deserve the spotlight. From Full House to Saved by the Bell, it appears that nothing is off-limits when it comes to reboots. So, why not give Home Improvement a chance to make its comeback?
2. Tim Allen Is Really, Really Keen To Make It Happen
Tim Allen's interest in rebooting Home Improvement is likely due to the potential financial gain, but it's also clear that he and the cast are eager to tap back into the magic they once created.
"I always think about it, because I still talk to everybody involved," Allen said in an interview.
3. He Doesn't Think It Should Be A Full Series
Similar to the Friends reunion, Tim Allen seems to think that the Home Improvement reboot should be a short, one-off special.
"I like the idea of doing it as a one-off, like a one-hour movie," he shared. "I like the idea of finding out where the boys are now, and where…Tool Time would be in today's world. I just think it's a marvelous idea, and all the actors think it's a great idea."
4. I Mean, Who Doesn't Want To See JTT Again?
I'm curious to see what Mark, Randy, and Brad are up to now as adults. Has Tim and Jillian's marriage lasted the test of time? Is Tim still working with Heidi and Al? It would be great to hear about all the updates in the last 20 years; an hour wouldn't be enough time to cover it all!
5. Reunion In New History Series More Power
Are you ready for a Home Improvement reunion? Tim Allen and Richard Karn are teaming up for a new History series that explores the power of invention. Fans of the classic show can look forward to learning more about big machines and the people who operate them. With the two stars at the helm, this is sure to be a must-watch series!
