Fox announced today that Last Man Standing has been picked up for a ninth season. The good news comes three weeks after the comedy wrapped Season 8, which was cut slightly short due to the coronavirus pandemic shutdown.

The renewal is its second at Fox. The Tim Allen series aired for six seasons at its original home on ABC before being cancelled in 2017. Since its revival, Last Man Standing has been garnering healthy ratings, currently ranking as one of Fox's most-watched and top-rated comedies.

Last Man Standing follows Mike Baxter, a man's man who works as a marketing director for a sporting goods store. But while he may be the king of the hill at work, he's the odd man out at his female-dominated household.

Look for Season 9 of Last Man Standing in the mid-season of 2020-2021.
