Starring and written by Will Forte, with executive producers and directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord, The Last Man on Earth will produce an additional 13 episodes to air during the 2014-15 broadcast season — the same number as its freshman run.
Starring Forte as the titular last man, the show has added characters in subsequent episodes and also counts Kristen Schaal, January Jones and Mel Rodriguez as regular cast members. Season-to-date, the series is averaging a 3.3 rating among adults 18-49 and 7.6 million viewers in Nielsen’s latest live-plus-seven day stats.
Fox is quickly filling up its returning roster. Last Man joins previously renewed comedies Brooklyn Nine-Nine and New Girl. On the drama side, Gotham, Sleepy Hollow and runaway smash Empire have also been locked to return. That leaves longtime veteran Bones, little-watched critical favorite The Mindy Project and The Following still up in the air — as well as freshmen Backstrom and Weird Loners.
Episodes of Last Man have been airing back-to-back of late, with the latest one-hour outing set for April 12. Find the latest information on broadcast renewals, cancelations and new series orders in The Hollwyood Reporter‘s scorecard.
