Cancelled Tim Allen comedy "Last Man Standing" is rising again on Fox, but two original cast members won't be joining him in the revival, according to a new report.

TVLine has the scoop that both Molly Ephraim (who played Allen's character's daughter, Molly) and Flynn Morrison (who played his grandson, Boyd) "have opted not to return for Season 7." Both roles are currently being recast.

There's a bit of a time crunch on that process, though, as Fox has already announced that "Last Man Standing" will be debuting on the network in September. The sitcom previously aired on ABC, which axed the show -- reportedly due to increasing costs, though Allen asserts it was because of his politics -- back in May of 2017.

According to TVLine, the status of another original cast member, Kaitlyn Dever (who plays Eve, another of Allen's character's daughters), is also in limbo. Dever is currently "in negotiations to return on a recurring basis," the site reports.

The rest of the "Last Man" ensemble will be back, though, including Nancy Travis (wife Vanessa), Amanda Fuller (eldest daughter Kristin), Jonathan Adams (Chuck), Christoph Sanders (Kyle), Jordan Masterson (Ryan), and Hector Elizondo (Ed).

"Last Man Standing" returns to the airwaves on September 28 on Fox .
