Comedian Tim Allen is one of television’s iconic sitcom stars.

But his career had come to a fork in the road.

And now Tim Allen made one major announcement that had his fans jumping for joy.

Comedian and actor Tim Allen is one the last non-woke funny men left in Hollywood.

After his show Last Man Standing ended in 2021, he’s been searching for his next major project.

And he just announced on social media that he’s going to be back on network television starring in a new sitcom.

He said that ABC had picked up the pilot for his new sitcom called Shifting Gears.

“We are at it again! ABC just ordered a comedy pilot, ’Shifting Gears,’” Allen wrote on X which included a link to a Variety article about the show.

Allen is set to star and serve as the executive producer for Shifting Gears, which Variety said was a working title for the show.

In the show, Allen stars as Matt, the “stubborn, widowed owner of a classic car restoration shop. When Matt’s estranged daughter and her teenage kids move into his house, the real restoration begins.”

If the sitcom is picked up by ABC, it will be his third sitcom on the network.

The third time could be the charm for Tim Allen at ABC

Allen became one of the biggest sitcom stars in the country in the 1990s when he starred as Tim “The Toolman” Taylor on the ABC hit Home Improvement, which aired from 1991 to 1999.

He returned to the network as the star as a conservative dad on the show Last Man Standing, which ran from 2011 to 2017 on ABC before it was mysteriously canceled despite being a ratings success.

The show’s continued success on FOX raised questions about whether it was canceled because of Allen’s conservative political views.

The Home Improvement star is a supporter of former President Donald Trump.

“I wouldn’t say that was the deciding factor,” ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said about Allen’s political leanings when the show was canceled.

Allen said he was “stunned” and “blindsided” when ABC decided to cancel Last Man Standing.

He previously said that it was tough being a conservative in Hollywood.

“You’ve gotta be real careful around here,” Allen said on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2017. “You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes. 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.’”
