Are you still sad about The Last Man on Earth being cancelled? Recently, star Will Forte revealed plans for what would have been the FOX TV show’s fifth season, Deadline reports.
As reported earlier, FOX has cancelled the comedy after four seasons. The cast includes Forte, Kristen Schaal, January Jones, Mel Rodriguez, Mary Steenburgen, and Cleopatra Coleman.
[These people] went down [into the bunker] when the virus had first started. They had some kind of medical expert or scientist who knew, ‘At this certain point, the virus will be dormant. You’ll be safe to get back out,’ and they had reached that point. Then they see a bunch of stragglers — us — and we represent a real threat to them, because they thought [everyone] was dead, so they quarantine us.”
And how would the series have ended? Forte says there was no specific ending planned but season five would’ve wrapped up the story:
We are immune to the virus, but we’re carriers. And so we would infect them and they’d die like wildfire. And then we’re back to just our little group, and maybe one famous [guest star] we could talk into staying around.
We don’t know how we were going to end the show. We would have found something that would have been fitting for the audience.”
