The most wonderfully weird new show of the season will live on.
We weren't sure it would happen, but Fox has renewed Will Forte's The Last Man on Earth for a second season. Forte created the series and Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie) are executive producers.
"We knew we had something special with The Last Man on Earth. It's one of those rare shows that continues to add depth and dimension to its unique premise, week after week," David Madden, president of entertainment at Fox, said in a statement. "We are so thrilled that this incredibly bold, original and inventive series has been embraced by both fans and critics, and we cannot wait to see where the creative genius and inspired vision of Will, Phil and Chris take us in season two."
The cast also stars Kristen Schaal (Bob's Burgers), January Jones (Mad Men) and Mel Rodriguez (Getting On). The Last Man On Earth is the No. 1 new comedy this season in the adults 18-34 demo and men 18-49.
Fox already renewed New Girl. So now the biggest qustion remains...What about The Mindy Project?! C'mon Fox. Don't leave us hanging! Also coming back to Fox: The X-Files.
But seriously, Fox, we need more of that Danny Castellano scruff.
The Last Man on Earth airs Sundays, 9 p.m. on Fox.
