Tim Allen said that everyone has decided to end “Last Man Standing” after nine seasons on the air on two different networks.

“I’ve been one lucky dude to have been part of Last Man Standing,” the 67-year-old actor shared with Deadline magazine in a piece published Wednesday.

“I so appreciate the incredible support from our fans over this near decade of work,” he added. “As we approach the ninth season, I just admire and feel grateful for all the hard work our wonderful cast and crew have done.

Allen continued, “We had all considered to end 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’m looking forward to a memorable and hilarious final season.”

The ninth season will kick off in January after it first debuted on ABC in 2011 and ran for six seasons until it was taken off the air in 2017. It then was picked up by Fox and the seventh season premiered in 2018 on that network.

As previously reported, “Last Man Standing” is a show about the “Home Improvement” star‘s character, a married man, who is outnumbered by his wife and three daughters and how he maintains his manliness.

“It has been an honor to be home for Tim Allen and Last Man Standing,” Michael Thorn, President, Entertainment, for Fox Entertainment shared. “Millions of families have long enjoyed the show because, perhaps, they see themselves in the Baxters.”

Filming is reportedly to get underway this week on the ninth season, per the outlet.

    I admire and have great respect for Tim Allen. I have enjoyed his shows, and movies. I will be sorry for the end of this one, Last Man Standing…it’s very good. I hope they will come up with a new sitcom with him starring…will pray for that.

    I can see getting out of Hollyweird. He needs to get back on the road with Blue Collar!

    While it’s sad to see Last Man Standing leave, it’s probably for the best. You can only produce so many fresh storylines. The ‘new’ Mandy, in my opinion, didn’t seem to fit in, no matter how hard she tried. We certainly don’t want to see a ‘Jump The Shark’ season. Better to leave while great, than meander down a tiring season and lose viewers.
