Fox announced today that Last Man Standing will be returning for an eighth season. The good news, which comes on the eve of its 150th episode, marks the comedy's first renewal at its new network.
The Tim Allen series was cancelled back in 2017 after six seasons at its original home on ABC. It took some time, but a year later Fox decided to revive the show for the 2018-2019 season. The move has been paying off for the network, as since its return Last Man Standing has been garnering healthy ratings on Friday nights, currently ranking as Fox's third-best scripted original in Live+7 viewing.
Last Man Standing follows Mike Baxter, a man's man who works as a marketing director for a sporting goods store. But while he may be the king of the hill at work, he's the odd man out at his female-dominated household.
Look for Season 8 of Last Man Standing this fall.
