Will Kaitlyn Dever return for the new season of Last Man Standing? Recently, EP Kevin Abbott spoke with TVLine about the TV show’s upcoming seventh season on FOX.
Dever played Mike Baxter’s (Tim Allen) daughter, Eve, on the family sitcom for six seasons before ABC cancelled it in 2017. Now, the series is returning for a new season on FOX with original cast members Allen, Nancy Travis, Amanda Fuller, Jonathan Adams, Christoph Sanders, Jordan Masterson, and Hector Elizondo.
Already, one of Mike Baxter’s daughters has been recast for season seven. Molly McCook will replace Molly Ephraim as daughter Mandy. As you may recall, back in season two, Amanda Fuller replaced Alexandra Krosney as eldest daughter Kristen.
Kaitlyn Dever, the only original daughter, will return to Last Man Standing in a recurring role. So far, she appears in only two episodes of season seven but Abbott is hoping for more. He said:
She’s in the first episode, [and] she will be in the third episode. Kaitlyn Dever’s marvelous and of course she took other work while we were off… She’s currently doing a Netflix show, but they’re being really, really accommodating.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Last Man Standing? Will you watch the new season?
