Last Man Standing Season 9: When is the release happening?
The series originally ran on ABC from 2011 to 2017 for six seasons and entered syndication in 2015. Despite being ABC’s second-highest rated sitcom from 2016-17 seasons, the network declined to renew the show for a seventh season. Media publications reported that ABC was unwilling to cover the production costs for a seventh season on behalf of 20th Century Fox Television. It was announced by Fox one year later that it had picked up the show for a seventh season, which premiered on 8th September 2018.
And, later in May 2020, Fox renewed the series for a ninth and final season.
It was announced by Fox that the comedy will end after its ninth season, which will premiere sometime on 3rd January 2021 and will consist of 21 episodes. A total of 194 episodes will have aired across its run on ABC and then Fox.

Last Man Standing Season 9: What about the plotline?
The series follows Mike Baxter, a senior executor and director of marketing for an outdoor sporting goods store chain based in Denver, Colorado. His home life is initially filled with his wife, three daughters, and a grandson, but later extends to the young men who are married to or dating his daughters.
In a statement, Tim Allen promised that the final run will be something unforgettable.
He said, “I have been one lucky dude to have been part of Last Man Standing. I so appreciate the incredible support from our fans over this near-decade of work. As we approach the ninth season, I just admire and feel grateful for all the hard work our wonderful cast and crew have done. We had all considered ending the show after last season, but together with FOX, we decided to add a year so we could produce a full season to create the gentle and fun goodbye. I am looking forward to a memorable and hilarious final season.”
