Last Man Standing is headed to FOX this fall and there are going to be some big changes. The Character, Mandy Baxter, played by Molly Ephriam, will now be played by Molly McCook. As reported earlier this Summer, Molly Ephriam has decided not to return to the show.
Another major change in the series is that Mike Baxter (played by Tim Allen) will have a major loss in his life. Mike’s father, Bud (played by Robert Foster), will be written off the show. In the time since the show went off the air, Bud will have passed away in story.
According to TVLine, the storyline decision is a way to get Ryan Vogelson (played by Jordan Masterson) more involved in the show. Ryan will be taking over the day-to-day operations of Bud’s weed store, “Bud’s Buds”.
With the new changes, we are excited for season 7 of Last Man Standing to premiere on FOX later this month.
