Tv Season Info

Will Forte created and stars in this post-apocalyptic comedy about a man named Phil Miller, who suspects he's the sole survivor after a deadly virus sweeps the planet in 2020, a feeling seemingly confirmed when he searches in vain all over the U.S., Canada and Mexico in his RV and finds no one. Despondent, he returns to his hometown of Tucson to mull the future of mankind, yet his sheer loneliness drives him to contemplate suicide. Just before he's about to end it all, however, he spots smoke coming from a campfire that belongs to—a woman named Carol (Kristen Schaal)! The series also stars January Jones, Mel Rodriguez, Cleopatra Coleman, Mary Steenburgen, Boris Kodjoe and Jason Sudeikis.

Critic Reviews for The Last Man on Earth: Season 1

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (24)

The Last Man on Earth approaches issues like loneliness and the need for a human connection but then pulls back hilariously. Too often, TV shows that take risks also take some effort on the viewer's part to enjoy. This one is just fun.

That's one reason to like the new Fox sitcom The Last Man on Earth ... It's all about the apocalaughs.

February 27, 2015 | Full Review…

This is a concept that so far doesn't lack for execution. Last Man On Earth has no chance at all to be a blockbuster in league with Fox's new Empire. But it's another distinctive example of what the Big Four broadcast networks should dare and do.

It's a concept I'm not sure can be carried over a season, much less multiple ones. It might have been a stronger feature film.

February 26, 2015 | Full Review…

Even though the show moves confidently and hilariously in a new direction in the second episode, at the same time it feels like the first half of a very smart, sharply edited feature film, not a sitcom with weekly obligations.

February 26, 2015 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

A not-uninteresting oddball series that's amiable enough, but not nearly funny enough.

Audience Reviews for The Last Man on Earth: Season 1


Super Reviewer

Most of the popuiation has suddenly disappeared, a man named Phil Miller is the "Last Man on Earth" until he meets Carol and more people started to show up. They have to deal with the everyday life without the ease of technology but also they need to deal with each others. Secrets and lies are revealed. Started off quite well but became about relationships once more people are introduced. Please don't renew this, just let it die.
