It was announced today that Last Man Standing will be coming to an end on Fox after its upcoming ninth season. The long-running comedy received its last pickup in May, though there was no hint at the time that it would be its final season.

The Tim Allen series has had quite a successful run. Premiering in 2011, the half-hour show aired for six seasons at its original home on ABC before being cancelled in 2017. Since its revival on Fox, Last Man Standing has performed well at its new home, garnering healthy ratings and often ranking as one of the network's most-watched and top-rated comedies. The show leaves Fox as its only returning live-action comedy, as its recent comedic focus has been on animated fare.

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 to premiere in January 2021.
