Last Man on Earth Lewis Dies

Last Man on Earth Renewed at Fox

Apocalypse, whew.

After sweating it out on the bubble for months, Will Forte’s modestly rated End of Days comedy Last Man on Earth has been renewed for a fourth season at Fox, TVLine has confirmed.

The pickup ensures that Last Man will not end its run on a cliffhanger, or as Forte called it, “The worst last episode of a show ever.” Quick refresh: Last Sunday’s Season 3 finale concluded with Kristen Wiig’s Pamela showing up amid a nuclear meltdown and whacking gun-toting lunatic Pat (Mark Boone Junior).

Forte foreshadowed the Season 4 renewal in an interview last week, telling TVLine, “The latest is that there might be some hope. I was feeling kind of pessimistic a few weeks ago and now I feel like, ‘Oh, we might have a shot.’ I got together with [Fox CEOs] Dana [Walden] and Gary [Newman] and told them what we wanted to do in Season 4; we had a really nice lunch. I understand the position that they’re in. We have [unspectacular] ratings. I think they like the show creatively, but they have to run a business. So I just told them how I thought we could improve the show for us on the creative level.”

Forte cheered the news on social media late Wednesday:

With Last Man in the safe column, all eyes will be on fellow Fox bubble comedies New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

  5. Kristina says:

  9. beergas says:

    Gave up after fun first season and maybe 2 episodes at start season 2. Stale.
    New cast member in photo in place of the hot one (only excuse I tried 2)?
    Still happy Fox would stick with it for the few die hard fans.

  10. Joey Padron says:

    So happy the show got renewed for another season! This news and Gotham’s renewal cheer me up about Timeless getting cancelled.

    • Allie says:

      Extremely bummed about Timeless. I looked forward to that show every week. It had so many stories left to tell. I hope Hulu or Netflix picks it up!!!!!!!!!

      • Billy Bob Johnson says:

        Too expensive to produce for Netflix and Hulu. NBC cheaped out because they don’t own enough of the show. Stupid Tinseltown executives.

      • Randy Eubanks says:

        NBC changed there minds n now renewed Timeless season 2👍 Although looks like it will b shorter season!

  11. Catherine says:

    Woohoo!

  12. Katie says:

    Yes! I love this show!

  13. DryHeat says:

  14. theizestooke says:

    niceee

  15. theizestooke says:

    I didn’t know that anyone able to make $6399 in 4 weeks on the internet
    . go to this web-site………….

  16. Boiler says:

    If this show got renewed there should be no question New Girl and Brooklyn99 should also be back. Last Man on Earth is by far the worst of these 3 and has gone off the rails.

  17. tara17 says:

    Great news about LMOE! Great show.

    Suggestion: I love Will Forte but there’s way too much filler material featuring Tandy as a man-boy riffing irrelevantly, so I would like less of that next season.

    B99 needs to be renewed. Bummed about Timeless.

  18. kmw says:

    Good for them Despite not great numbers it has been decent on Sundays

  19. Randall says:

    Great news about LMOE!!! I honestly hope that they don’t bring back New Girl, that ending was perfect and it would be a shame to ruin it(I’m looking at you HIMYM) with a forced or mediocre season. Everyone was in a good spot and happy.

  20. Scott says:

    I love the show, but if that was real, the rest of the gang would have killed Tandy by the middle of the second season!

  21. Jo Garret says:

    Thank God!!!!!

  22. Adam says:

    This show is the only reason i watch Fox!

  23. Nick says:

    I hope they dont make Tandy as annoying or they make it so the rest of the gang tell him him to shut up more often, his speeches are painful.

  24. Charlene says:

    I love last man on earth. The time slot for it is bad. Move it to another night. Friday niģht would be great, there’s never anything good on Friday night
