FOX confirmed more of the network’s spring 2016 schedule this afternoon. The popular comedy “Last Man on Earth” will make its spring premiere with all-new episodes beginning Sunday, March 6 (9:30-10:00 ET/PT) on the network, as “Bordertown” moves to the Sunday slot.
On the same day as the “Last Man on Earth” premiere, “Bordertown” will start its new timeslot. The animated-comedy comes from executive producers Mark Hentemann and Seth MacFarlane, and will now air on Sundays (7:00-7:30 PM ET/PT).
THE LAST MAN ON EARTH fall finale concluded with PHIL MILLER 2 (guest star Boris Kodjoe) undergoing a makeshift appendix surgery, and PHIL/TANDY’s (Will Forte) astronaut brother, MIKE MILLER (guest star Jason Sudeikis), attempting to descend to Earth from outer space without human aid.
The winter premiere will pick up exactly where the show left off, with Mike Miller’s space capsule careening through the sky toward Earth, finally putting him on the same planet as his big brother, PHIL/TANDY (Forte). Mike thinks he is the last man on earth, but who knows what or whom he might encounter. As previously announced, Critics’ Choice Award winner and Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Jacob Tremblay (“The Room”) will appear as a young PHIL/TANDY in an upcoming episode this spring.
Before moving time periods on Sunday, March 6, BORDERTOWN returns with all-new episodes on Sunday, Feb. 14 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Sunday, Feb. 21 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT).
