Will The Last Man on Earth last for a fourth season? The FOX TV show is nearing the end of its third season, but its chances of a renewal are still very uncertain. What do you think? Should the series be cancelled or renewed?
The comedy follows Phil Miller (Will Forte), a man who believes he is the last human on Earth after a deadly virus has devastated the planet. The cast also includes Kristen Schaal, January Jones, Mel Rodriguez, Mary Steenburgen, and Cleopatra Coleman.
Ratings have not been good for The Last Man on Earth during season three. Currently, the comedy is averaging a 0.91 rating in the 18-49 demo and 2.16 million viewers — quite low for a primetime network series and a drop of 20% from season two.
Last month, creator and star Will Forte said he hopes there’s a fourth season because the season three finale will not offer closure:
We have left it in a place where, if for some reason we don’t get renewed, it will be the worst last episode of a show ever. It’s like the exact opposite of the Breaking Bad finale.”
On Twitter, Forte urged people to watch the series since it’s “on a serious bubble.’ As of now, FOX has not announced if the show will return for a fourth season or not:
…our show's on a serious bubble. So if you like it, please watch on tv tonite or DVR or https://t.co/ovQQwhLHa2 in the next 3 days. Thanx!

Do you watch The Last Man on Earth? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season? Please vote in our poll and then tell us what you think.
Even if you cancel the series, I think (as indicated in the poll) we at least want a season four to wrap things up as opposed to being yet another sitcom people like, without a proper ending to the story, or in this case, no ending at all.
My husband and I love this show. We are 73 yrs old. The reason we like it is because it’s dumb, but you know that it’s supposed to be that silly. And I’ll tell you, the actors are great and comic relief is very much needed today Please don’t cancel this show.
Not a fan….Watched the first episode of the series and it just didn’t do it for me!!!!
Fourth season is a must!!!
Good riddance . . . .
Its a little goofy but I never miss it. Well I guess I love it. Theres no other show out there like it. Please don’t cancel it!
I found it to be amusing at first, but as time has gone on it seems to rely more on slap stick type and vulgar comedy. If that trend continues, I will be done with this show. It was the only 30 minute comedy that I watch and I no longer expect to find any of those that are not offensive, stupid or both. Dial back the stupid and offensive on this show and I’ll give it another chance if the network will.
I love this show and have not missed one episode since it aired. I can’t wait for season 4! Please don’t take this great show away!
I thought it started out great. But eh, not such a huge fan anymore. The Kristen Wiig episode was EXCELLENT. But if it doesn’t come back, I’m ok with that.
It’s such a great show, please bring it back!!!
Couldn’t get past the first couple episodes. Not for me.
I like the show and watch it regularly .. but I think it’s gone as far as it can go … the story is getting long in the tooth and Will Forte’s character has became harder and harder to watch … they needed to make him less crazy and less cringe worthy … Sooo …. I am on the fence with this being returned for another season
