Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing” is reportedly gearing up for a reboot, less than a year after its star suggested ABC might have canceled the series over his conservative politics.
Allen tweeted to his more than 280,000 followers on Thursday.
"They heard all your voices people!!" the longtime comedian tweeted.

The television veteran's tweet came as TVLine reported that “Last Man Standing” is “poised to be resurrected by Fox for the 2018-2019 TV season.”
Allen, 64, signed a deal for a potential seventh season, according to the site.
Allen, an outspoken Republican, starred as a right-leaning character on the sitcom. Shortly after ABC canceled the series last year, critics questioned whether the show got the ax because of Allen’s political views.
“There’s nothing more dangerous to me, especially in this climate, than a funny, likable conservative,” Allen said while discussing the show’s cancellation in an interview last year.
ABC denied politics played a role in the cancellation. The network’s entertainment president, Channing Dungey, said in 2017, “politics had absolutely nothing to do” with the network nixing the series.
“We have actors on our shows who have all sorts of different political views,” Dungey said.
The rumors of a "Last Man" second act come as another politically-charged reboot has spelled success for ABC.
