Will Forte’s “Last Man On Earth,” was reported by TV Line to be given a go ahead for a fourth season in May this year. The final episode of its third season was described by many as being the “worst last episode of a show ever.” This was because of its unbearable cliffhanger, where Kristen Wiig (Pamela) was seen appearing in the middle of a nuclear meltdown alongside Pat (Mark Boone Junior). A new report also claimed that Chris Elliot is going to be seen making a guest appearance on many of the episodes this season.
