Well, there was no way The Last Man on Earth would end on a cliffhanger, or that Gotham would wrap up Batman’s beginning before Batman begins. As such, FOX confirms that both series will return for fourth seasons this fall.
The Last Man on Earth
There’s no one way to conclude stories set after the world’s end, but The Last Man on Earth certainly can’t leave us on Season 3’s finale cliffhanger. Season 4 is not yet confirmed, but creator and star Will Forte is at least optimistic SNL chum Kristen Wiig will get to reprise her major appearance next year.
The Last Man on Earth isn’t a show defined by its end-of-the-world mythology, but last week’s Kristen Wiig-centric “Got Milk?” filled in a few blanks with regard to the virus’ 2019 debut, including the successive deaths of President Mike Pence, Paul Ryan and so on. Trump’s name was deliberately excluded, though creator and star Will Forte now weighs in on the gag’s origin, and what became of the 45th President.
Three seasons in, The Last Man on Earth has revealed little of its history, only occasionally referencing the fact that the series takes place some time after 2023. As such, the Will Forte apocalypse comedy occasionally gets to have fun with our future history, as last night revealed the fate of the 46th president, and his entire staff.
We still don’t know if SNL and MacGruber pals Kristen Wiig and Will Forte will ever reunite for that MacGruber sequel, but FOX’s The Last Man on Earth will nonetheless get the two back onscreen. See for yourself, as a new Last Man promo for March reveals Wiig’s mysterious character, and apparent affinity for the ‘80s.
Near of the world’s entire population dies of a virus, and The Last Man on Earth still manages to run into celebrity after celebrity. The latest offers another SNL (and MacGruber!) reunion, as Kristen Wiig will appear on Last Man in a top-secret role later in Season 3.
FOX and Will Forte’s Last Man on Earth most always keeps its pop-culture references on the surface, save for anyone noticing Betty Draper in their midsts. Last year paid what seemed to be a quick homage to January Jones’ Mad Men past, but Sunday’s Season 3 premiere saw Betty finally get even with an awesome cameo.
The Last Man on Earth has gone to far stranger places than we ever imagined by its bare-bones premise, and might even go to war in the Season 3 premiere. After the ominous cliffhanger of Season 2, our first Season 3 premiere photos see the survivors gearing up for a fight, or at least making new eyebrows for themselves.
Gee, isn't it nice to not have to wake up at 5:30 A.M. for the 2016 Emmy nominations? Either way, the big announcement is finally here, as presented by black-ish star Anthony Anderson and Gilmore Girls returnee Lauren Graham, so let’s find out what we're all angry about/celebrating this year at the Emmys!
Oh boy, it’s that time again! Comic-Con 2016 stands at a mere thirty days away, and FOX has opened up the floodgates as the first major TV haven to announce its SDCC plans. Prepare for a major Prison Break reunion, along with new debuts for The Exorcist, a send-off for Bones and more!
