Season nine of Last Man Standing is currently well underway and coming close to its completion. Since it’s the show’s final season, it’s coming to an end soon. However, the sitcom had a surprise in store for fans tonight when they welcomed back the family’s youngest daughter.
Eve (Kaitlyn Dever) had a regular role on the hit show for the first six seasons. But in season seven, the character took a step back, only making appearances here and there. Her on-screen character joined the Air Force Academy, so that’s why she isn’t at home with her family more often.
In real life, the reasoning for her absence is a bit more complicated. Dever took on other acting roles following ABC’s cancellation of Last Man Standing. She took a part in Netflix‘s Unbelievable and also filmed the movie The Front Runner in 2018.
According to a TVLine article, executive producer Kevin Abbott said that Dever will still film Last Man Standing during her “hiatus weeks.” Although she’s not on the show as often these days, the fan-favorite character is coming home to see her family tonight when Last Man Standing airs on FOX at 9 p.m. EST.

Yet there’s no reason to panic. With three episodes left, fans will still get an opportunity to see how the sitcom chooses to wrap things up. In fact, later tonight Last Man Standing fans will get to take in the 14th episode of the last season.
