Home Improvement Stars Tim Allen And Richard Karn Are Reuniting For A New TV Show
It's been years since we saw the likes of Tim Allen and Richard Karn take on their legendary roles in Home Improvement.
The American sitcom ran from 1991 to 1999 and helped launch Allen's acting career as well as give legendary icon Pamela Anderson her big start.
After 21 years off the air, the two leading men are coming back together for a new slice of the pie.
Allen and Karn have signed on to host the History Channel's new reality TV series Assembly Required.
They'll be in charge of supervising and guiding the contestants as they try to make treasure out of the trash that they're provided. Hopefully they haven't lost their undeniable chemistry they had on Home Improvement and throw out a few zingers here and there.
A press release from the History Channel states: "Assembly Required will spotlight the best and brightest builders from across the US, at their home workshops, as they compete to breathe new life into everyday household items in desperate need of fixing.
"This new series will push each contestant to their limits while testing their ability and ingenuity to not only rebuild it but to build it better."
We're already hooked.
Tim Allen added that he can't wait to see what the contestants come up with over the 10-part series.

"Let's face it - we're living in a throwaway society. We buy, break, replace ... rinse and repeat. Whatever happened to repair and rebuild?" he said.
"There are some people who unfriend, unfollow and dispose of anything that offends, annoys or breaks - so I've created a show to remind people of the satisfaction and pride that comes from rebuilding something on their own. And who better to join me than my buddy from the old Tool Time days - Richard Karn!"
Tim revealed last year that he would 100 per cent go back to Home Improvement if it was on the cards.
The actor said he's not ruling out some sort of revival - although he prefers the prospect of a 'one-off' movie spin-off project, rather than rebooting the entire series.
Speaking to TVLine, Allen said of the show: "I always think about it, because I still talk to everybody involved.
"The question I had was, 'Is it still relevant? Is Tim Taylor relevant in the Mike Baxter world?' Because Mike Baxter [Allen's character in his current sitcom Last Man Standing] is like a real version of Tim Taylor; he's not such a joke.
"And the [Outdoor Man] vlogs are like Mike's version of Tool Time done as a web series."
Speaking more directly about a return to Home Improvement, he continued: "I like the idea of doing it as a one-off, like a one-hour movie [versus a full-fledged revival series]," Allen said.
"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 marvellous idea, and all the actors think it's a great idea."
