As Rockwell explained (via Entertainment Weekly):
"They were going to do a sequel on Amazon. We were ready to sign up, and [then] Alan Rickman passed away and Tim Allen wasn't available – he has a show – and everybody's schedule was all weird. It was going to shoot, like, right now. And how do you fill that void of Alan Rickman? That's a hard void to fill."
It's impossible to fill, but by Grabthar's Hammer they should avenge his untimely death and do it anyway! Tim Allen should make himself available -- come on, Jason Nesmith owes Alexander Dane. Sigourney Weaver, Tony Shalhoub, Enrico Colantoni, Daryl Mitchell, Missi Pyle -- they all need to come back and honor Dane/Rickman. If not now, then maybe they can schedule something for the 20th anniversary of the 1999 comedy? Please?
