‘Assembly Required’ Posts Short Clip With Tim Allen Referring to a Season 2 ‘Deal’

by Samantha Whidden

While continuing to wait for the History Channel to make a decision about plans for a Season 2 of Assembly Required, the show’s team is attempting to help speed up the process, by posting a short clip with Tim Allen.

In a post on Tuesday, the Assembly Required team took to Twitter and writes, “Hey @history do we have a deal for Season 2 of #assemblyrequired?” the tweet features Tim Allen starting to shake hands before turning into a pinky promise.

As previously reported, the History Channel has yet to confirm if it will officially renew Assembly Required for a second season.  Allen and his former Home Improvement co-star Richard Karn were stars of the show. 

According to the network, Assembly Required reunites Allen and Karn in a competitive series that “spotlights’ the best and brightest builders across the U.S. at their home workshops. The contestants compete to “breathe” new life into everyday household items that are desperately in need of fixing. The History Channel also explains, “In each episode, Allen and Karn will also dive into the unique history around these items to celebrate the men and women who crafted them, and the techniques used.”

Fans of the show continue to remain optimistic by tweeting, “Yes, we all wanna [hear] a YES!!!” Starring alongside Tim Allen and Richard Karn is April Wilkerson.  

Tim Allen Moving On From Last Man Standing

Tim Allen recently said goodbye to his character, Mike Baxter, on the hit TV sitcom Last Man Standing. The show centers around Baxter, his work, and his family. Baxter, who was the only male in his household, also ran a sporting goods store called “Outdoor Man.” The show, which was on air on two different networks for nine years, came to an end last month. Nancy Travis, Molly Ephraim, Molly McCook, Kaitlyn Dever, Christoph Sanders, and Héctor Elizondo starred alongside Allen.

In a Twitter post after the finale’s airing, Tim Allen states, “Difficult feelings as I sit with my real family ready to say goodbye to the Last Man Standing family e created and lived all these years. Years that flew by. Heartfelt thanks to all you who watch our work.”

Tim Allen recently spoke about the feelings he experienced when the show switched from ABC to Fox for Seasons 7-9. “I took the show pretty seriously when [ABC] said that we were out and I had an alternate reality that for a control freak like me, you do control,” Tim explains at the time. “You go to work and there’s craft service. I loved going to work. Very few jobs I’ve had other than standup, which I don’t like to travel and I don’t like waiting to go on stage because I get nervous, I loved that part of it. This I love.”
