About Last Man Standing star and double award nominee Tim Allen

Last Man Standing fans were saddened to learn that the series will end after Season 9.

Season 9 is set to begin in January 2021. Twice nominated for a Family Film Award, Tim Allen, previously released a press statement regarding the final season:

I’ve been one lucky dude to have been part of Last Man Standing. I so appreciate the incredible support from our fans over this near decade of work. As we approach the ninth season, I just admire and feel grateful for all the hard work our wonderful cast and crew have done. We had all considered to end the show after last season, but together with FOX, we decided to add a year so we could produce a full season to create the gentle and fun goodbye. I’m looking forward to a memorable and hilarious final season.
