FOX picked up Last Man Standing to return to TV this fall. They will be recasting two of the shows main roles ahead of it’s FOX Network debut. Molly Ephriam (Mandy) and Flynn Morrison (Boyd) have decided to exit the show, according to Deadline.
Another one of the shows main characters, Hector Elizondo – who was on his way out of the show for an NBC pilot that didn’t get picked up, will return to the show.
Currently, all of the main stars minus Ephriam and Morrison will return for the show’s 7th season.
Commentary: Ephriam really made the show and I am sad to see her go. Her comedic timing and chemistry with the rest of the cast was amazing. Morrison leaving doesn’t bother me as he didn’t really have a massive impact on the show. This is also the second time one of the Baxter kids will be recast.
