by Thad Mitchell

Fans awaiting the return of “Last Man Standing” will now have to wait a little longer for the hit show.

The show’s ninth and final season will still premiere in January but it has been hit with a minor delay. The season premiere will debut at 9:30 p.m. ET, which is one hour later than initially expected, according to TV Line.

While it isn’t earth shattering news, creators of “Last Man Standing” want to make sure fans of the show know about the slight time change. The series’ final season will debut on Sunday, January 3.

Earlier this year, Fox announced the beloved sitcom would return for just one more season. While fans of the show were disappointed the show was ending, many were excited it was renewed for one last season.

The popular show features former “Home Improvement” star Tim Allen in the lead role. The show’s premise is built around Allen’s character, Mike Baxter, navigating his around a home filled with women. Baxter’s wife and three daughters provide him with plenty of love but also plenty of obstacles as the man of the house.

Allen previously released a statement, expressing excitement over the upcoming season. He says he considers himself a lucky man for the show to have the success over the course of nine seasons.

“I’ve been one lucky dude to have been part of Last Man Standing,” he says. “I so appreciate the incredible support from our fans over this near decade of work. As we approach the ninth season, I just admire and feel grateful for all the hard work our wonderful cast and crew have done. We had all considered to end the show after last season, but together with Fox, we decided to add a year so we could produce a full season to create the gentle and fun goodbye. I’m looking forward to a memorable and hilarious final season.”
