Patricia Richardson Addresses 'Home Improvement' Reboot Rumors

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That’s the sentiment Patricia Richardson holds when it comes to revisiting her iconic role as Jill Taylor in the '90s sitcom "Home Improvement." In an exclusive interview on the "Back to the Best" podcast, Richardson candidly shut down rumors of a potential reboot, leaving fans with a clear message: "Not interested."

Tim Allen's Whispered Hope

A few months ago, Tim Allen, ever the dreamer, whispered a hope into the world: a "Home Improvement" reboot. The idea? Reuniting Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor with his adult sons for more of the classic show's quirky humor. But Richardson, who portrayed Jill Taylor, wasn't buying it. She revealed that Allen never approached her about a reunion, leaving her puzzled by his public statements.

Why No Reboot?

Richardson listed several reasons why a reboot is unlikely:

  • Earl "Wilson" Hindman, who played the enigmatic neighbor, passed away in 2003.
  • Taran Noah Smith, who played the youngest son, has left acting behind.
  • Jonathan Taylor Thomas, not keen on acting, now focuses on directing and writing.
  • Zachery Ty Bryan, who portrayed Brad, faces legal troubles as a felon.

Richardson emphasized that the magic of the original show couldn't be recaptured, especially with the absence of key cast members.


So, despite Allen's musings, it seems the "Home Improvement" toolbox won't be reopening anytime soon.
