“The Last Man On Earth
Season Premiere Sunday, September 27 at 9:30 PM ET/PT on FOX
 
          From writer/producer Will Forte (“Nebraska,” “Saturday Night Live”) and directors/producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord (“The Lego Movie,”  “21 Jump Street”), THE LAST MAN ON EARTH is a comedy about the life and adventures of Phil Miller, an average guy who inadvertently became humanity’s last hope. It stars Will Forte and Kristen Schaal.

          The series recently was nominated for four 2015 Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (Forte), Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series (Forte) and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series (Lord, Miller).    
 
           After a deadly virus swept the planet in 2020, only one man was left on earth: PHIL MILLER (Forte). Phil searched the country in his RV for other survivors, only to return to his hometown of Tucson, realizing that he was almost certainly the last living being on the face of the earth.  All he wanted was for someone – anyone – to find him.

          His prayers were (kind of) answered with the arrival of CAROL PILBASIAN (Kristen Schaal), the last woman on earth. Carol and Phil do not share the same post-apocalyptic values, and Carol forces Phil to marry her before they attempt repopulation. Phil finally agrees, only to discover that another woman still roams the earth, MELISSA SHART (January Jones).

           Their cul-de-sac is soon filled with a handful of other survivors, including the lovable and cheerful TODD (Mel Rodriguez), charming southerner GAIL (Mary Steenburgen), Aussie ERICA (Cleopatra Coleman) and, finally, a strapping, second PHIL MILLER (Boris Kodjoe), who have all followed the billboards to Tucson to complete their tiny, weird community.

 

          "Is There Anybody Out There” - Phil has managed to tick off everyone in the group and is banished from Tuscon by Phil Miller 2. Carol, however, has a change of heart and decides to stick with Phil as they strike out on their own in a road trip across the United States.

          Oh, and Phil’s astronaut brother (Jason Sudeikis) is still alive and floating in outer space.
