Last Man Standing was renewed for another season on Thursday, less than a month before the season finale airs on Friday, May 10.

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

“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,” Fox President of Entertainment Thorn Michael added. “We’d also like to congratulate them all on reaching 150 episodes — a milestone that’s well-deserved.”

Last Man Standing stars Allen as Mike Baxter and Travis as his on-screen wife, Vanessa Baxter. Amanda Fuller, McCook and Kaitlyn Dever play their daughters. The series also stars Christoph Sanders, Jordan Masterson, Hector Elizondo, Jet Jurgensmeyer, Jonathan Adams and Kirsta Marie Yu.


The next episode of Last Man Standing airs on Friday at 8 p.m. ET on Fox. In "Yass Queen," Mike invites Mandy to a business meeting with an aggressive sales representative (Melissa Peterman). Meanwhile, Ed asks Kyle to transcribe his life story. The episode is the show's 150th.
