FOX has officially announced that it’d be bringing two of its shows — Gotham and Last Man On Earth — back for at least one more season.
Last Man On Earth, a comedy about the life and adventures of the last man on the planet, was created by Will Forte, who stars alongside Kristen Schaal, January Jones, Mel Rodriguez, Mary Steenburgen and Cleopatra Coleman.
