Last Man on Earth Return Date

TVLine Items: Last Man Return Date, FNL Reunion at ATX Fest and More

We’re officially one step closer to Phil and Mike Miller’s inevitable family reunion.

The Last Man on Earth will return with new episodes on Sunday, March 6, at 9:30/8:30c, Fox announced Friday. That same day, Seth MacFarlane’s animated series Bordertown will move to its new 7 pm time slot.

The Will Forte-led comedy will pick up right where it left off, with Mike’s space capsule descending toward Earth, putting him on the same planet as his big brother.
