Get More: Casting News, Exclusive

Reunited and it feels… like the ’90s all over again.

Tim Allen’s former Home Improvement sidekick Richard Karn is set to appear in an episode of Allen’s current ABC sitcom Last Man Standing, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Karn will play Bill, a gruff good old boy and the Outdoor Man’s original architect. He is dumbfounded when he learns he may be losing the account to a young, gorgeous woman — who he assumes got the job because of her good looks.

The episode is slated to air in early 2013.

On Tuesday, ABC ordered five more episodes of Last Man Standing, bringing its Season 2 total to 18.

    • Minus the new daughter. She’s terrible. Doesn’t gel with the family.

      • I don’t like the new daughter either! I wish they’d done a “Family Matters” and just wrote her off the show and pretended like she was never there to begin with. The other two daughters are hilarious.

    • It’s not even the best show on ABC. Hell Reba’s new show is still better.

  • Good move. I think LMS’s biggest demographic is the HI nostalgia crowd.

  • Al: So you’re saying that when you make fun of my weight and my beard, it’s because you like me?
    Tim: Yeah.
    Al: How about when you tease me about wearing flannel?
    Tim: I do that because you look ridiculous.
