Last Man Standing Renewed at Fox

at .

Last Man Standing's future has been decided at Fox, and it's good news.

The network has handed out an order for Last Man Standing Season 8.

The news is unsurprising, especially when you consider the robust ratings the comedy has been pulling in on Friday nights.

Last Man Standing Season 7 is currently averaging 6.9 million total viewers and a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49, towering above the competition on the night in the demo.

“Hard to believe Last Man Standing hits 150 episodes this week and it gets better with another upcoming season at FOX!” Tim Allen said in a statement.

“Great news for all of us who are creating these stories and working our pants off to make you all laugh. It’s another big high-five to the legions of loyal fans who have faithfully kept us front and center and huge on the radar."

Jen and Vanesa - Last Man Standing Season 7 Episode 11

"Thanks to our family at Fox who continue to make us feel so at home. Man, if we keep this up, they might have to call our show: Last Man Unable to Stand.”

Added Fox’s President of Entertainment Michael Thorn, “Last Man Standing roared out of the gate on Fox, and has maintained its ratings dominance ever since."

"Much of that credit goes to the incredibly funny and talented Tim Allen, not to mention Nancy [Travis], Hector [Elizondo] and the rest of the show’s great cast."

Kyle - Last Man Standing Season 7 Episode 11

"We’d like to thank [executive producers] Kevin Abbott, Matt [Berry] and the entire crew, along with our partners at 20th Century Fox Television, for overseeing one of television’s most popular comedies."

"We’d also like to congratulate them all on reaching 150 episodes — a milestone that’s well-deserved.”
