The Last Man on Earth has taken its fan down a darker path during its third season. Is the end near for the FOX comedy? Will Forte, the man behind the comedy, spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the direction this season has taken and his plans for the future of the series.
Does Forte know how The Last Man on Earth will end? Not yet.
He said the following:
“I have no idea. I didn’t think we’d ever go past one season. (Laughs.) It’s kind of a mix of organic absurdity. We try to make everything as plausible as possible, but we don’t let plausibility get in the way if we have something we like enough. A lot of times we will have ideas that we think are fruitful areas in the beginning of the season and just kind of see how they go. With Jason Sudeikis, we had an idea of how we wanted to end the season, so we just connected the dots in between. We always have rough ideas of things we could do, but I would have no idea how the show would end.”
The Last Man on Earth will return to FOX this spring with the second half of season three. How long do you want this comedy on the air? Tell us what you think.
