The sitcom Last Man Standing, starring Tim Allen, ends after its upcoming ninth season. Fox renewed the show for this last season in May of 2020. Originally, it began its journey on ABC before Fox took it for its final three seasons.

Like other shows with new episodes airing in the earlier months of the pandemic, Last Man Standing ran into difficulties with airing fresh content. The episode of season eight that people watched as the finale is actually the penultimate episode of that season.

President of entertainment for FOX Entertainment Michael Thorn expressed both regret and fondness thanks to the show and its conclusion. “It has been an honor to be home for Tim Allen and ‘Last Man Standing,” he stated. “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. 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.”

Last Man Standing follows Tim Allen as Mike Baxter, a marketing executive at an outdoor sporting goods store. The family, residing in Denver, Colorado, has a husband, wife, three daughters, and a grandson who is the child of the oldest daughter. As the story progresses, Baxter also must embrace the men his daughters wish to date and someday marry.

Deadline reports the actors and producers will film for the finale this week in mid-October. ABC hosted seasons one through six before Fox acquired it. There, it now stands as the most-watched Friday regular comedy in the last 15 years, according to Fox. Tim Allen was attached to the project since the early days of its conception when it was primarily a pilot titled Last Days of Man.
