Last Man Standing is an American sitcom created by Jack Burditt for the American Broadcasting Company and the Fox Broadcasting Company later. The show stars Tim Allen as a senior employee of a sporting goods store in Denver, Colorado, who is a married father of three daughters and a grandfather to his oldest daughter's son, Boyd. Last Man Standing is a joint production by 21 Laps-Adelstein Productions, NestEgg Productions, Fox Entertainment, and 20th Century Fox Television and syndicated by 20th Television.
The series originally ran on ABC from 2011 to 2017 for six seasons, and entered syndication in 2015. Despite being ABC's second-highest rated sitcom for the 2016–17 season, it was revealed in May 2017 that the network had declined to renew Last Man Standing for a seventh season. Media publications reported that ABC was unwilling to cover the production costs for a seventh season on behalf of 20th Century Fox Television. One year later, the Fox Broadcasting Company announced it had picked up the show for a seventh season, which premiered on September 28, 2018.
On April 18, 2019, Fox renewed the series for an eighth season.
