Recent News & Updates

Chances, Ratings & Statistics
Actually, we believe that “The Last Man on Earth” has many odds to be renewed for a next season on FOX, mostly relying on the pretty favourable reception of the current season. Let’s take a look at some figures. Currently, according to Rotten Tomatoes, the third season of “The Last Man on Earth” has an average score of 7.3 out of 10 and a 80% approval rating among critics, whereas the viewers have rated the current season of the post-apocalyptic comedy at 3.6 out of 5 with a 69% approval rating based on 38 user ratings. However, according to Metacritic, the current season of the series has received a mainly mixed reception with a 6.0/10 rating among the viewers. At the same time, an overall score of the series still remains very strong; 7.4/10 based on approx. 37,000 user votes, according to IMDb.
The premiere of the third season has drawn 2.228 million viewers (-28.95% compared to last season’s premiere) with a 0.94 demo rating (-33.80%) among adults (18-49). However, subsequently these indicators are increased. So, for instance, episode six, titled “The Open-Ended Nature of Unwitnessed Deaths” garnered 2.637 million viewers with a 1.05 demo rating. For comparison, “The Last Man on Earth” Season 3 averaged a 1.15 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.75 million total viewers.
Renewal Potential and Notification of the Release Date (Season 4)
Though the third season of “The Last Man on Earth” lost many viewers, we still tend to believe that FOX could renew the comedy series for a next instalment. Besides, series creator Will Forte is going to make new episodes of the post-apocalyptic series. We consider the television ratings quite strong, despite the decrease of the viewing audience. But we would prefer to wait for the official announcement by FOX one way or another.
