Last Man Standing is finally on its way back after it was saved by Fox, and now the first cast photo featuring two new cast members is here!
Entertainment Weekly shared the photo on Wednesday, September 12 that features: Jonathan Adams, Hector Elizondo (Ed Alzate), Christoph Sanders (Kyle Andreson), new cast member Molly McCook (Mandy Baxter), Tim Allen (Mike Baxter), Nancy Travis (Vanessa Baxter), Amanda Fuller (Kristin Baxter), new cast member Jet Jurgenson (Boyd Baxter), Jordan Masterson (Ryan Vogelson), and Kaitlyn Dever (Eve Baxter).
“It’s going to be one great theme each week seen as through the eyes of a very tolerant integrated family,” Allen said.
As previously reported, Last Man Standing was cancelled after six seasons in March 2017 by ABC and in early 2018 Fox confirmed it was bringing the show back with a seventh season revival.
“Excited? Team LMS was in the sixth inning, ahead by four runs, stands were packed and then for no reason, they call off the game. It leaves you sitting in the dugout, holding a bat and puzzled. Now we get the news from Fox that it’s time to get back out on that diamond — hell yes, I’m excited!” Allen said in a statement at the time. “When I heard the offer to create more episodes of Last Man Standing, I did a fist pump so hard I threw my back out. It’s the fans! I could not be more grateful for the fans who wrote petitions and kept up the passion and incredible support for the show. And a fist pump, ouch, for Dana Walden and Gary Newman at Fox for not only listening to the fans, but for making the bold move to bring Last Man Standing back. I’m sure audiences will be curious to see what we look like after all these years. Oh, has it only been one year? Well, just goes to show you — a lot can happen in a year.”
Following the news of the revival, it was also confirmed that two of the show’s main cast members would not be returning, but the roles would be recast. Molly McCook has taken over the role of Mandy Baxter from Molly Ephraim while Jet Jurgensmeyer has taken the role of Boyd Baxter from Flynn Morrison.
It was confirmed that Molly Ephraim had to be replaced because the actress had already signed on to other projects and was not able to return meanwhile Morrison was replaced because they had decided they wanted to “age up” the character of Boyd.
Season 7 of Last Man Standing premieres on September 28 on Fox.Entertainment Weekly

Hector Elizondo doesn’t take on many leading roles, but rather has done many appearances and co-starring roles which makes his net worth lower than it should be.
