TIM ALLEN RETURNS AS THE BLUNT "MAN'S MAN" FOR A FIFTH SEASON
OF ABC'S "LAST MAN STANDING" FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25
Tim Allen returns for a fifth season in "Last Man Standing" as 'Mike Baxter,' who continues to be surrounded by forces seeking to test his ideas on just about everything in which he strongly believes. The season premiere will air on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25 (8:00-8:31 p.m., ET/PT) on the ABC Television Network.
"Last Man Standing" is a show about everything that families are dealing with today - all filtered through the blunt "man's man" comedy of an iconic American dad. Through it all, Mike sees himself as a beacon of common sense amid the chaos of a larger world that keeps changing, and, according to Mike Baxter, those changes are not for the better.
In the episode, "The Wolf Returns," Mike has returned from being on a fantastic two-month road trip traveling to far-flung places for Outdoor Man. It's great to be back with his wife, Vanessa, and their three daughters, but finds a lot has been going on at home as well as on the job since he's been away. To top it all off, a tornado is headed toward the Outdoor Man store and the Baxter home.
"The Wolf Returns" was written by Michael Shipley and directed by John Pasquin.
