Home Improvement stars Tim Allen and Richard Karn will reunite as part of a new History channel competition series Assembly Required. The show will debut in 2021 as a 10-part series. 

The History Channel described the show during a recent press announcement. Assembly Required will “spotlight the best and brightest builders from across the US.” Contestants “compete [in order] to breathe new life into everyday household items in desperate need of fixing.” To win, not only are contestants required to fix broken home equipment but rather make improvements(Ah, we see what they did there).

Allen will star on the show, while Karn will be set to host. Both men will also serve as executive producers to the show.

For the past few months Allen and Karn have teased about their reunion—finally, their collaboration has been greenlit!. 

“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!” Allen stated.

Both men are better remembered as the iconic duo from the 90’s sitcom Home Improvement (19911999). Tim Allen starred as the show-host-within-a-show Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor, alongside his handy sidekick Al Borland, played by Karn. 

Allen has previously shared his hopes for a revival of the 90s classic, preferring a one-off hour-length film. Yet for now, we can hope to enjoy the charm of Tim and Al’s witty remarks with 2021’s Assembly Required.
