Last Man Standing Season 9 to Wrap Up the Series

-

FOX announced today that Last Man Standing Season 9, which premieres in January 2021, will mark the final season of the hit family comedy. The announcement was made by Michael Thorn, President, Entertainment, for FOX Entertainment.

When the series ends, it will have filmed 194 episodes in total, with its three last seasons having aired on FOX, beginning in the fall of 2018. Additional information on Last Man Standing Season 9, including its premiere date, will be announced at a later time.

Last Man Standing stars Tim Allen as Mike Baxter, a happily married father of three daughters, who usually finds himself the odd man out in a home dominated by women. In addition to Allen, the series stars Nancy Travis as Mike’s wife, Vanessa Baxter; Amanda Fuller as their oldest daughter, Kristin Baxter; and Molly McCook as middle daughter Mandy Baxter-Anderson.

Also starring are Christoph Sanders as Mandy’s husband, Kyle Anderson; Jordan Masterson as Kristin’s husband, Ryan Vogelson; Jonathan Adams as the Baxters’ neighbor and Mike’s co-worker, Chuck Larabee; Krista Marie Yu as foreign exchange student Jen; and Hector Elizondo as Mike’s longtime business partner and Vanessa’s step-father, Ed Alzate.

“I’ve been one lucky dude to have been part of Last Man Standing. I so appreciate the incredible support from our fans over this near decade of work,” said series star and executive producer Tim Allen.

“As we approach the ninth season, I just admire and feel grateful for all the hard work our wonderful cast and crew have done. We had all considered to end the show after last season, but together with FOX, we decided to add a year so we could produce a full season to create the gentle and fun goodbye. I’m looking forward to a memorable and hilarious final season.”

“It has been an honor to be home for Tim Allen and Last Man Standing. Millions of families have long enjoyed the show because, perhaps, they see themselves in the Baxters. The loyal affection they’ve shown proves just how much this series has meant to them,” added Thorn.

“On behalf of everyone at FOX, a big, big thank you to Last Man Standing’s brilliant cast, led by Tim, Nancy and Hector, as well as its writers and crew, headed by showrunner Kevin Abbott. We’ll be rooting them on throughout the season as they conclude what has been an impressive run.”

“Being the studio to bring national treasure Tim Allen back to television not once, but twice, was one of the great pleasures of all of our careers,” commented 20th Television President Carolyn Cassidy.

“The fact that this series, created by Jack Burditt and run by Kevin Abbott, has had such longevity is a testament to its talented writing staff and crew, the deep support of two television networks and the undeniable charisma of its stars, led by Tim Allen, Nancy Travis and Hector Elizondo.”

Last season, Last Man Standing averaged 9.0 million Total Viewers in Multiplatform audience, +111% from its Live + Same Day delivery. It also ranked as a Top 10 comedy and a Top Five comedy series on Thursday nights for the 19/20 season. In Last Man Standing‘s FOX premiere, the series posted its highest Friday rating ever and marked television’s most-watched Friday regular comedy telecast in 15 years.

Last Man Standing is produced by 20th Television. The series was created by Jack Burditt. Kevin Abbott, Matt Berry, Kevin Hench, Ed Yeager, Tim Allen, Marty Adelstein, Shawn Levy, Becky Clements, Richard Baker, Rick Messina, Pat Bullard, Mike Teverbaugh, Linda Teverbaugh and John Amodeo are executive producers. Abbott serves as the series’ showrunner.
