What’s next for Last Man Standing? Recently, star Nancy Travis spoke with TVInsider about the FOX TV show’s 150th episode and season eight renewal.
The comedy series debuted its seventh season on FOX last year after being cancelled by ABC. The cast includes Tim Allen, Nancy Travis, Amanda Fuller, Molly McCook, Christoph Sanders, Jordan Masterson, and Hector Elizondo.
It is stunning that we made one hundred and fifty episodes. That’s an enormous amount of episodes, and I wasn’t even aware of it until I showed up for the table read and there was a big banner in the room that said, “Congratulations on a hundred and fifty episodes.” It’s a testament to the durability of this show and the fact that people love to watch it and that we keep getting these chances to make it.”
Later, Travis commented on the show’s season eight renewal, saying the show is always hanging by a thread:
Every year we’ve always felt like we were going to be picked up and then it was a nail biter right until the end, and then the one year where we were certain we were going to be picked up is the year we were canceled. … Going into this pickup season, [we] definitely felt confident that the show was going to [be] picked up cause we were doing so well for Fox on Friday, but by the same token, until you actually see it in print [Laughs], it doesn’t matter what anybody says.”
What do you think? Do you watch Last Man Standing? Are you glad it’s returning for another season?
