THE LAST MAN ON EARTH’s central couple — Phil and Carol — left Tucson at the end of last season as Phil was exiled by the residents, and Carol opted to go with him.

“There’s obviously a new dynamic between the two of them, and they’re trying to make it work,” THE LAST MAN ON EARTH executive producer Chris Miller shared. “I think you saw Phil hit his rock bottom last season, so now you’re getting the chance to see a Phil who isn’t a different guy, but the difference is he’s trying to be a better person. Where in the first season, he wasn’t trying; he would try for a little bit, and then then go now.”

The exile will also allow the series to expand in its sophomore year.

We are so thrilled that this incredibly bold, original and inventive series has been embraced by both fans and critics, and we cannot wait to see where the creative genius and inspired vision of [series star/creator] Will [Forte], [and executive producers] Phil [Lord] and Chris [Miller] take us in Season Two.”

It’s not uncommon for people associated with shows to claim they’re doing something that hasn’t been done on television before. Occasionally, they’re at least partially correct. But when talking about the new Fox comedy, THE LAST MAN ON EARTH, it’s hard to think of any other series that has attempted something quite like this — there is nothing on television to hold it up against, the show is its own unique being.
