[ # ] Will Forte reveals what would have happened next on Last Man on Earth
July 30th, 2018 under Will Forte

When Last Man on Earth ended its fourth season, the gang found themselves surrounded by a bunch of strangers. We did not know if they were good guys or bad ones. Then it looked like we would never find out because evil Fox cancelled the fan favorite on a cliffhanger.

Now that two months have passed and no one was nice enough to pick it up, the show’s star and creator, Will Forte, is revealing what would have happened next. He told Vulture’s Good One podcast, “Basically they had been in this bunker and they went down when the virus had first started. They had some kind of medical expert or scientist who knew, ‘At this certain point, the virus will be dormant. You’ll be safe to get back out.’ Then they see a bunch of stragglers — us. And we represent a real threat to them, because they’d thought everything was dead, so they quarantine us.”

Eventually, the nine of them would get to know the bunker people and they would let one of them out quarantine. The only problem is that even though our guys were immune to the civilization-ending virus, they were still carriers. Thus, when the two groups meet, only one will survive. Our guys.

That storyline would have gone for the first 4-5 episodes and then it would have gone back to being just about them and their growing family. Which might have included one more famous person who was part of the bunker people. Because there is always time to kill off a celebrity we know and love in the funniest of ways.

Did Forte know how the show was going to end? He did not, but he did come up with a plan. He was thinking it was all going to be a dream of talking cat who can communicate through a special collar. If the 5th season gets made, I offer up my cat to play that part.

Was he upset that LMOE was cancelled? Yes and no. He loved doing it, but the 7-days a week with very long hours was a lot for him to handle. He is happy to have his life back. I just wish we had the show back. It was the feel-good apocalypse show we all needed. Yes that is possible.
