The comedy follows Phil Miller (Will Forte), a man who believes he is the last human on Earth until he discovers other survivors. The cast also includes Kristen Schaal, January Jones, Mel Rodriguez, Mary Steenburgen, and Cleopatra Coleman.
FOX has not announced yet whether The Last Man on Earth will be renewed for a fourth season or not. So far, season three is not doing that great in the ratings. The season is currently averaging a .95 rating in the 18-49 demo with only 2.267 million viewers.
In the interview, Forte says he hopes the show is renewed because the end of season three does not offer closure:
[T]he finale of Season 3 would be a real bummer for people if it didn’t come back for a fourth season, because there’s something that happens [in the episode] that opens the gateway to the possibility of stuff. I’m really excited about how it ends… And I think that people probably have a good idea what it is.”
Later, he said he hasn’t heard anything about a renewal but hopes The Last Man on Earth will be back:
I think [Fox] likes the show. But I know it’s all about the ratings and stuff. So I guess we just have to see. … I do hope we get a fourth season. It’s just such a wonderful group of people to work with.”
What do you think? Do you watch The Last Man on Earth? Do you hope it gets renewed for a fourth season?
