The Last Man on Earth Canceled After Four Seasons at Fox!

at .

It's the end of the line for Fox's The Last Man on Earth. 

The network has decided against renewing the apocalyptic comedy series for a fifth season. 

The cancelation is unsurprising when you consider the ratings for The Last Man on Earth Season 4

It averaged just 2 million viewers and a 0.8 rating in Live + Same Day figures. It did get a decent boost with DVR factored in, but it was not substantial enough to keep the show on the air. 

We won't spoil the recent Season 4 finale, but we will say that it ended on a cliffhanger. That's down to how late the cancellation was announced.

"And thank you to our fans who loved and laughed at these ridiculous and lovably flawed characters. @orviv your brain is a national(global?), treasure."
