PREMIUM SPOTLIGHT ON TIM ALLEN'S 'LAST MAN STANDING' 7TH SEASON GLORIOUS TV RETURN! CAST INFO, CHARACTER PHOTOS AND NEW TRAILER!

   'LAST MAN STANDING'
GLORIOUS 7TH SEASON RETURN!
This time, the sitcom airs on Fox!
It was definitely one of the greatest victories in the history of television. Two years ago when ABC decided to kill its best watched comedy LAST MAN STANDING after six years of running (during which the sitcom continuously kept winning Friday night ratings each week and each year, even though it received almost no marketing from the network), for rather obvious political reasons, more than half a million of Last Man's most faithful fans have demanded its return in an online petition, and now the sitcom is returning to the small screens: new network, Fox, same time, Friday evenings, starting September 28th! Although people who never watched it like to unjustly call it conservative, LAST MAN
The beloved cast returns September 28th to the small screens!
STANDING is everything but. The most wholesome family show on the television has always put focus on a dialogue between opposing opinions, ages and classes, ending each of its love filled episodes with a message of tolerance and compromise. Message of peace wrapped in decent, always fresh and mature, humour while tackling the current social, political and all other issues. So here's a big hooray for the return of television's most beloved multi camera comedy!

LAST MAN STANDING

war with the French.  A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots.

Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfil her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics stand in her way. Nicholas Hoult and Joe Alwyn also star. The poster is almost as unattractive as the trailer and direction are.
