Last Man Standing is an American sitcom starring Tim Allen and created by Jack Burditt for ABC and distributed by 20th Television.
The series follows Mike Baxter, a senior executive and director of marketing for an outdoor sporting goods store chain based in Denver, Colorado, whose world is filled with his wife, three daughters, grandson, and the young men married to or dating his daughters.
Why It Was Cancelled Edit
According to Jori Arancio, senior vice president of ABC Entertainment and ABC Studios, ABC and its production partner for the show, 20th Century Fox TV, typically negotiate licensing fees prior to each season; however, the network decided to cancel the show without doing so. Also, the contract between 20th Century Fox TV and ABC for the show, in which the former covered the cost of production, had expired after six seasons. Had the series been renewed for a seventh season, ABC would have been required to pick up productions costs, which the network was unwilling to do.
On May 11, 2018, Fox TV's CEOs and chairmen announced that Fox had officially picked the show up for a seventh season, which premiered on September 28, 2018.
