Actor Tim Allen issued a very, very big tease concerning the abruptly cancelled TV series "Last Man Standing."

If his remarks are any indication, it sounds like the show could be making a much-desired return to television.

What did Allen say?

On Thursday, the 64-year-old Allen tweeted, "They heard all your voices people!! LMS just might be a reality. Keep it up. Who wants more #LastManStanding?"

In a previous tweet, Allen wrote, "Stay tuned."

What about the show?

"Last Man Standing" was a primetime sitcom on aired on ABC and featured Allen as the lead, a conservative American man. The show ran from 2011 to 2017.

The show was canceled in May 2016 despite high ratings. As a result, much speculation swirled over whether the show's politics played a part in the cancellation, and the cancellation caused a fury among many conservatives.

Allen himself previously said that he was "stunned and blindsided" by the hasty cancellation.

When reached for comment, Marleah Leslie — Allen's representative — told Fox News, "I will let Tim's tweet speak for itself."

ABC has yet to comment on Allen's tweet.

Anything else?

In a September interview with Norm Macdonald, Allen discussed the untimely fate of the beloved show and warned that, in the current political climate, there is "nothing more dangerous right now than a likable conservative character."

TMZ reported a news item in March that alleged Fox was considering resurrecting the show.

The entertainment outlet reported that any possible resurrection was due in part to the record-breaking success of the "Roseanne" reboot, which saw major ratings and garnered much attention from conservatives and those in middle America.

"The irony," TMZ reported, "we’re told the success of ‘Roseanne’ has intrigued Fox because there appears to be a big Trump-supporting audience out there. Fox produced the show when it aired on ABC, and we’re told the talk now is to possibly reboot and put it on Fox."
