The last comedy standing has been renewed: ABC picked up Tim Allen’s sitcom Last Man Standing for a fourth season.
The order decides the fate of the final comedy series on the bubble from the 2013-14 season. Just a few shows remain in limbo, such as NBC’s Parenthood (expected to return) and Dracula (unlikely). Earlier this week, Last Man Standing’s Friday night companion, The Neighbors, was canceled along with several other ABC comedies (full list of axed shows this week is here).
In addition, ABC announced two more new comedy series orders: Cristela and Fresh Off the Boat. Official descriptions from ABC for both below:
CRISTELA: In her sixth year of law school, Cristela (Cristela Alonzo) is finally on the brink of landing her first big (unpaid) internship at a prestigious law firm. The only problem is that her pursuit of success is more ambitious than her traditional Mexican-American family thinks is appropriate. She’s stuck straddling the old culture she’s trying to modernize at home with her working-class family and the modern world she’s trying to embrace in her professional career. Breakout comedian Cristela Alonzo stars in this hilarious comedy about laughing your way down the path to the new American dream. “Cristela” stars Cristela Alonzo as Cristela, Carlos Ponce as Felix, Terri Hoyos as Natalia, Andrew Leeds as Josh and Sam McMurray as Trent. “Cristela” is written by Cristela Alonzo and Kevin Hench. Executive Producers are Kevin Hench, Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements and Shawn Levy. “Cristela” is produced by 20th Century Fox Television.
FRESH OFF THE BOAT: It’s the ’90s and 12 year-old, hip-hop loving Eddie (Hudson Yang) just moved to suburban Orlando from DC’s Chinatown with his parents (Randall Park and Constance Wu). It’s culture shock for his immigrant family in this comedy about pursuing the American Dream. “Fresh Off the Boat” is based on Chef Eddie Huang’s memoir Fresh Off the Boat. “Fresh Off the Boat” stars Randall Park as Louis, Constance Wu as Jessica, Hudson Yang as Eddie, Forrest Wheeler as Emery and Ian Chen as Evan.“Fresh Off the Boat” is executive produced and written by Nahnatchka Kahn and executive produced by Jake Kasdan for 20th Century Fox Television.
