Last man standing get the last laugh. In a new trailer for the relaunched sitcom that will now air on Fox, the two main characters hint at ABC’s passage and make sure viewers are aware of the show’s new network.
In the 16-second clip released Tuesday, July 17, Mike Baxter (Tim allen) and his wife, Vanessa (Nancy Travis), are sitting around a campfire as the joke begins. “Look at that, look, it’s a fox!” Vanessa exclaims before bursting into laughter.
After she reports the animal again, Mike invites her to say it a third time. “I’m sorry,” he replies, “I didn’t hear you. What is it? ”After Vanessa says“ fox ”again, Mike adds,“ I know someone is going to be glad you said it three times.
Before the promo ends, a voiceover announces the pace of the cover, and Allen can again be heard saying “Fox” at the end of the clip.
Last man standing Originally aired for six seasons from 2011 to 2017 on ABC, but was not picked up for a seventh season. Speculation that the sitcom was rejected because of Allen’s actual Republican political beliefs has since been denied by ABC.
Fox announced in May that it will be the new home of the revival, which will continue to air on Friday nights until 2019.
In the sitcom, Allen plays a conservative father of three who owns a sporting goods store called Outdoor Man. Vanessa, meanwhile, is dipping her feet into the world of work after being a stay-at-home mom for years.
Last man standing Premieres on Fox on Friday, September 28 at 8 p.m. ET.
