Last Man Standing has been renewed at Fox.
After ABC canceled the family multicamera comedy starring Tim Allen, it was picked up by Fox, which has just confirmed that the series will go on for its second season (and its eighth overall).
Allen stars as Mike Baxter, a happily married father of three daughters, who finds himself the odd man out as he tries to maintain his manliness in a home dominated by women.Nancy Travis, Amanda Fuller, Molly McCook, Christoph Sanders, Jordan Masterson, Jet Jurgenson, Jonathan Adams, and Hector Elizondo co-star.
“Last Man Standing roared out of the gate on Fox, and has maintained its ratings dominance ever since,” said Michael Thorn, president of entertainment for Fox Entertainment. “Much of that credit goes to the incredibly funny and talented Tim Allen, not to mention Nancy, Hector and the rest of the show’s great cast. We’d like to thank Kevin, Matt and the entire crew, along with our partners at 20th Century Fox Television, for overseeing one of television’s most popular comedies. We’d also like to congratulate them all on reaching 150 episodes — a milestone that’s well-deserved.”
According to Variety, the show is the second highest-rated scripted series on Fox and the No. 1 scripted program on Friday night.
“Hard to believe Last Man Standing hits 150 episodes this week and it gets better with another upcoming season at Fox,” said Allen. “Great news for all of us who are creating these stories and working our pants off to make you all laugh. It’s another big high-five to the legions of loyal fans who have faithfully kept us front and center and huge on the radar. Thanks to our family at Fox, who continue to make us feel so at home. Man, if we keep this up, they might have to call our show: Last Man Unable to Stand.”
