It’s been a rough week for the Collective team.
First, we heard that Wayward Sisters wasn’t being picked up by the CW, and now, Fox has cancelled The Last Man on Earth, AKA the only thing to make me laugh since November 8, 2016. The doomsday, postapocalyptic satirical series only lasted four seasons until Fox gave it the ole’ Firefly-esque chop, which, honestly, is about three seasons longer than most of their shows with a basis in speculative fiction.
That doesn’t make it hurt any less, however. The Last Man On Earth was a refreshingly original discussion of post-humanism and the doomsday scenario, and it was f***ing funny. I ranted about this on my Twitter the other day, so forgive me if I’m a bit repetitive because I’m still upset.
