Variety is reporting the show will resume the Friday night slot it once held on ABC before the network decided to cancel the conservative-leaning series. Best of all, fans won’t have to wait that long to see the Baxter family back on their TV screens – the show is slated to broadcast this Fall.
“Last year, when ‘Last Man Standing’ was cancelled, we really looked for an opportunity to move it to our schedule, and we just didn’t have the right show to pair it with, we didn’t have the right opportunity for it,” Gary Newman, CEO of Fox Television Group, revealed in a conference call to reporters.
According to Variety, Last Man Standing will kick-off a fall Friday night line-up that will include a new series The Cool Kids, and Hell’s Kitchen.

We are back!
