THE LAST MAN ON EARTH, 2014 Fox New Shows


This is one misleading show title we're totally OK with!

While we love love LOVE (did we mention love?!) Will Forte, we have to admit the concept of an entire TV series with only one character seemed a little too much (or not enough?!) for us.

But after watching the Saturday Night Live alum's new Fox comedy, The Last Man on Earth, we can safely say it's one of our favorite new shows of the year. And we can also say other humans will appear!

At the 2015 Winter TCA Press Tour on Saturday, Forte revealed that Mary Steenburgen is set to appear on the show, but declined to reveal any details about her role. 

But the Stepbrothers and Proposal star, who can also be seen on FX's Justified, isn't the only other person who will appear as Mad Men's January Jones is making Last Man on Earth her first TV gig after the AMC hit drama ends.

In addition to Steenburgen and Jones, other actors who will appear on the high-concept sitcom include Kristen Schaal as Carol, Mel Rodriguez (EnlistedGetting On) will play Todd and Cleopatra Coleman (Neighbours, Rush) will play Erica. 

There are multiple ways in which all of these actors can appear, executive producer Chris Miller said, "Whether they're in flashbacks, dreams or the present-day. TV shows are built on relationships and it seemed odd to make show without any relationships."

But what exactly leads to Forte becoming the last man on Earth?

"We don't spend that much time talking about it.There has been a virus," Forte revealed. "We don't go too far into it, and we're just shooting out 10th episode and I don't know we ever do more than just casually mention it."

But Miller did nix one possible scenario: "There are no zombies."

The Last Man on Earth premieres March 1 on Fox.
