CMT is in preliminary talks with 20th Century Fox TV to bring back Tim Allen's sitcom "Last Man Standing" for a seventh season.
The Hollywood Reporter said CMT is trying to see if it can afford the long-running series, which co-stars Nancy Travis and Hector Elizondo.
However, cast members have not been approached yet about extending their contracts, which expire in two weeks, Deadline.com reported.
Allen tweeted last month that he was "stunned and blindsided" about the cancellation and fans swiftly began a campaign to keep the show on the air.
CMT revived the nighttime soap "Nashville" after ABC canceled it last year.
