Fox’s half hour comedy series The Last Man on Earth starring and created by Will Forte has been renewed for a second season, as just announced by Fox Broadcasting Company President of Entertainment David Madden. The decision to bring the show back for a second season makes sense as the ratings have been stellar for the series’ first season, with The Last Man on Earth ranking first in its Sunday time slot among adults and teens.

In addition to Forte, season one has featured Kristen Schaal, January Jones, and Mel Rodriguez. The LEGO Movie‘s Chris Miller and Phil Lord are involved as directors and 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,” said Madden. “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 Plot:

The Last Man on Earth chronicles the life and adventures of Phil Miller (Forte), an average guy – and humanity’s last hope – who discovers what life is like when no one is telling you what you can and cannot do.
