No Season 5 for the post-apocalyptic comedy.
May 10, 2018
It looks like The Last Man on Earth has reached the end of the road after four seasons. Star January Jones posted the sad news on her Instagram account this afternoon, expressing her gratitude for her time on the show.
"To our @lastmanfox family..it's been an amazing 4yrs, thank you for all the hard work, we love you and will miss seeing you every day! And thank you to our fans who loved and laughed at these ridiculous and lovably flawed characters," the actress wrote, alongside a picture of her co-star Will Forte.
The end-of-the-world comedy premiered in 2015 with a 13-episode mid-season run that garnered critical acclaim and solid ratings. After a good first-showing, Fox moved the series to its regular fall lineup and upped its episode count to 18. Two more renewals would follow, though its ratings slowly tapered off over the course of its run.
As The Last Man on Earth has done in the past, Season 4 ended with a cliffhanger finale that, to its fans dismay, will never be resolved.

They cancel this but bring back Last man standing. I can not watch Fox any more. I will not support a network that is that dumb. I guess NBC and ABC is where I will watch shows now.

The only 3 shows I ever watch on Fox were LMOE, B99, and The Mick. Fox is literally dead to me. There's no need to premiere new shows. They won't measure up.

Fox could have tried a Friday comedy block at some point during the year... Master Chef/Jr could have been moved to Sunday 8 or 9pm cts!!! Oh well 2 shows I can delete of my series manager list. Very disappointing.

FOX officially re-branded to FOCKS.
Cancels 3 great shows at once to prove they are serious.
RIP - BRKLYN99, MICK, TLMOE
Forever worth re watching & hope you are resurrected.
