Has The Last Man On Earth Season 4 been cancelled with “the worst series finale of all time”?
With FOX yet announce the show’s fate, creator/ star Will Forte is optimistic that we haven’t seen the last of the apocalyptic comedy, per THR:
Oh man, [the Season 3 finale] would be the worst series finale of all time! [Laughs] No, we had no plan as to that. So yeah we’re hopeful, and who knows? Hopefully it works out so we get to tell the rest of this story. I’m feeling hopeful about a fourth season, but you just never know. They’ve been so wonderful to let us do three seasons. So it’s gravy if we get another one, but I love gravy.
On what a potential fourth season would look like:
I don’t know exactly. We usually leave ourselves with a situation where it’s pretty open-ended, then we deal with it the next year. I feel like if we were to get a season four we do have a little more knowledge of what would happen than past seasons but it’s just little things, where they would go, and stuff with the Pamela character and the births so it’s a little bit more to go on, it’s so nice to have even the tiniest fragment of an idea going into another season. Last season going into season three, we knew nothing. We didn’t even know if it was two men under the hazmat suits? Two women? Kids?
We have a spontaneous working style, so it’s really nice to have this break and go into another season, because we have time to think out what were the things we liked, what we didn’t like. I think we learned some valuable lessons along the way and not every episode will turn out exactly the way you want but what it comes down to is whatever seems the most organic.
Is this the end of The Last Man On Earth, or will FOX renew for Season 4? Stay tuned: all will be revealed by May 12…
