‘Home Improvement’ reboot? ‘Last Man Standing’ crossover stirs tons of speculation [Video]

Tim Allen reprised his Home Improvement character, Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor, during Thursday night’s Last Man Standing. Fans of both series celebrated the crossover, which also hinted at a potential reboot.

The premise of the episode was that Tim wanted to meet Mike Baxter, Allen’s other character, because he heard they look so much alike. Tim helped Mike with a broken garbage disposal, and of course hilarity ensued.

The bit will come in the second episode of “Last Man Standing’s” upcoming ninth season, when Vanessa hires a home improvement repairman who bears an uncanny resemblance to Mike, who is struggling with an idea for his Outdoor Man 10th Anniversary vlog.
