The show loved by many fans has finally found a new home at Fox.
Time Allen’s Last Man Standing will be returning to the small screens for its seventh season. It has been a year since the hit show had been canceled at ABC.
The show’s stars like Nancy Travis, Jonathan Adams, Amanda Fuller, Christoph Sanders and Jordan Masterson have officially signed their contracts to return on Last Man Standing.
As for Allen, he shared his excitement over the big news in a statement on The Hollywood Reporter.
He said, “Team LMS was in the sixth inning, ahead by four runs, stands were packed and then for no reason, they call off the game. It leaves you sitting in the dugout, holding a bat and puzzled. Now we get the news from Fox that it’s time to get back out on that diamond — hell yes, I’m excited!”
Allen went on to acknowledge the fans’ efforts to bring back the show. Supposedly, the die-hard fans wrote petitions and other stuff to get the attention of the big networks in the hopes of bringing back their beloved show.
The news follows the announcement that Fox had canceled their other comedies such as Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mick and Last Man on Earth.
Gary Newman and Dana Walden, chairmen and CEOs at Fox Television Group, shared how they felt that Last Man Standing ended too quickly and revealed that the fans really made sure their voices were more than loud enough to be heard.
The duo also revealed they have had plans to bring the show back since its last episode aired over a year ago, but only now did they have the chance to push the plan through.
At present, no return date and episode count for the upcoming installment had been released yet.
Last Man Standing was originally created by Jack Burditt.
