Fox announced today the upcoming ninth season premiering in January will be the last for the comedy that the network resurrected in 2018, one year after its ABC cancelation. Fox has picked up 21 episodes for the final season of Last Man Standing, its only returning comedy from last season, bringing it to a total of 194 episodes. Last Man Standing ran for six seasons on ABC, starting in 2011, before it was axed in 2017. Fox, which was then corporate siblings with 20th Century Fox Television, revived the comedy in fall 2018. “I’ve been one lucky dude to have been part of Last Man Standing,” said Allen in a statement. “I so appreciate the incredible support from our fans over this near decade of work. 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.” Season 9 is expected to begin filming this week.
