Fox Brings Back The Last Man on Earth Early; It's a Party on Fox Saturday Nights This March

The Last Man on Earth

The Last Man on Earth will make its spring premiere with all-new episodes beginning Sunday, March 6 at 9:30PM ET/PT on Fox. Also on March 6, Bordertown, the new animated series from executive producers Mark Hentemann and Seth MacFarlane, will move to its new time period, Sundays at 7:00PM ET/PT. The Last Man on Earth fall finale concluded with Phil Miller 2 (guest star Boris Kodjoe) undergoing a makeshift appendix surgery, and Phil/Tandy's (Will Forte) astronaut brother, Mike Miller (guest star Jason Sudeikis), attempting to descend to Earth from outer space without human aid. The winter premiere will pick up exactly where the show left off, with Mike Miller's space capsule careening through the sky toward Earth, finally putting him on the same planet as his big brother, Phil/Tandy (Forte). Mike thinks he is the last man on earth, but who knows what or whom he might encounter. As previously announced, Critics' Choice Award winner and Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Jacob Tremblay (The Room) will appear as a young Phil//Tandy in an upcoming episode this spring. Before moving time periods on Sunday, March 6, Bordertown will still air all-new episodes on Sunday, Feb. 14 at 9:30PM ET/PT and Sunday, Feb. 21 at 9:30PM ET/PT.


Party Over Here

The half-hour series stars newcomers and actress/comedians Nicole Byer (Girl Code), Jessica McKenna (Riot) and Alison Rich (Resident Advisors).
