Between Roseanne and Will & Grace making a comeback over the past year, now, all our ’90s sitcom reboot dreams just keep coming true. And next on the list could be another favorite that’s been off the air for a long time. Apparently, a Home Improvement revival could be happening, and it sounds like the original cast is on board, too.

While talking to Closer, Richard Karn — who played Al Borland, Tim’s BFF and Tool Time co-host, duh — revealed that it’s something he and the cast have not only discussed but that they’re into. He says he recently talked to Tim Allen about the idea, and it sounds like it could be a go.

“And I think [Patricia Richardson] and the kids would be on board,” he added.

That’s good news because the only way we’d ever be remotely interested in Home Improvement coming back to TV would be if the original cast was involved. Preferably Jonathan Taylor Thomas, because who wouldn’t want that guy back on our TVs? If you say you didn’t have a crush on JTT as a kid, you’re lying. And yeah, he’s been out of the entertainment industry for a long time now, but they’ve gotta bring back all the Taylor boys, right?

Richard isn’t the only one who’s loving this idea. Earlier this year, Tim admitted that he’d be “very interested” in the idea of bringing Home Improvement back in an interview with Entertainment Tonightso it seems more than plausible that we could end up hearing more revival news soon. He even added that more of the cast wants to come back than he expected, so it’s a definite possibility.

So far, the success of shows like Roseanne and Will & Grace returning to TV have made it obvious that people are loving nostalgia right now, so what better time could there be to add another ’90s sitcom to the lineup? Home Improvement could definitely still work in 2018, with a few minor adjustments. After all, look at how well Chip and Joanna Gaines have done with their little home improvement show, Fixer Upper? The premise of the ’90s show could certainly be updated to resonate with today’s audience.

Guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens next, but it’s promising to hear that the cast is interested in the idea. Fingers crossed that we could see the Taylor family again — maybe even next TV season?
