The final season of popular sitcom “Last Man Standing” is winding its way down with only a couple of episodes remaining.
Fans of “Last Man Standing,” along with its cast and characters, are preparing for an emotional farewell to close out the final season. The show has long been popular with a broad audience finding comfort and laughter in the show. The show’s social media accounts reminded fans that there are only two episodes remaining before the show signs off for good.
“Last (two) episodes of Last Man Standing,” the Instagram post proclaims. “Don’t miss out tomorrow.”
Tomorrow (Thursday) evening will be the final episode of “Last Man Standing” before the finale airs next week. Several fans of the show used the comments section of the social media post to share their feelings on the end of a journey.
“I am going to miss the Baxter family,” an Instagram user responds. “I also really loved how people from Home Improvement made appearances. That was awesome!”
‘Last Man Standing’ Draws Comparison to Home Improvement
Like the popular 1990s sitcom “Home Improvement,” “Last Man Standing” stars Tim Allen as a family man in his wheelhouse. It isn’t the only similarity between the two shows and “Last Man Standing” has brought in a couple of crossover characters. Allen even reprises his role as Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor on “Last Man Standing.” Richard Karn, who played Al Borland on “Home Improvement,” also makes appearances on the show.
Also like “Home Improvement,” “Last Man Standing” relies heavily on Allen’s all-time great comedic chops. The show surrounds him with an excellent cast that allows him to be the centerpiece and act accordingly. On the show, Allen plays Mike Baxter, a marketing director for an outdoorsman retail store called “The Outdoor Man.”
At home, Baxter is surrounded by women as he has a wife and three daughters. The women in his life provide him with lots of love but also with obstacles he must navigate on a daily basis. It’s a recipe for comedic brilliance that works out tremendously well with Allen at the helm.
While fans are sad to see the show go, they are glad they got nine full seasons of the hilarious sitcom. The show was canceled by ABC after six seasons but was saved by FOX and given three additional seasons.
The brand new episode will Thursday evening at 9 p.m. ET.
