‘Last Man Standing’ Cast Shake-Up: These Two Stars Are Out

Conservatives have been hyped-up for the return of hit show “Last Man Standing,” starring actor Tim Allen. But two original cast members will not be back for Season 7.

Molly Ephraim, who played Allen’s vain but lovable middle daughter named Mandy Baxter, will not be returning for the highly-anticipated upcoming season. Actor Flynn Morrison, who played Allen’s grandson named Boyd Baxter, also opted out of Season 7. According to Deadline both characters are currently being recast.

Additionally, Kaitlyn Dever, who played Allen’s youngest daughter, Eve Baxter, is currently negotiating a “reoccurring role” on the new season. Dever, reports Variety, recently signed on to play a role in Netflix’s “Unbelievable.”

“Last Man Standing” is one of the few shows on television that promotes conservative messaging and perhaps the only show currently on air that has a cast member, Tim Allen, who is openly Republican. The show centers around Allen’s character, Mike Baxter, as he manages to maintain his manliness in a house where he is outnumbered by females: his wife and three daughters.

The show originally aired on ABC and was created by Jack Burditt.

According to Deadline, the rest of the core cast is set to return for the new season, including actors Nancy Travis, Jonathan Adams, Amanda Fuller, Christoph Sanders, Jordan Masterson, and, of course, Allen. Executive producer/showrunner Kevin Abbott and writer/executive producers Matt Berry, Kevin Hench and Ed Yeager are likewise returning.

Fox’s “Last Man Standing” will be back on TV starting September 28, set for its original 8 p.m. slot on Friday nights.

    Mandy will never be the same. Maybe….I’ll wait and see. I sure hope that they are not quitting because of liberal pressure from Hollywood.

    The rest of the family is so lovable, I could take Mandy, but never liked her character, but no blame on the actress. I am very glad “Last Man Standing” will be bck, hopefully stronger than ever.What is the name of the actor who plays the boss/partner?

    I love “Last Man Standing” It is a truly believable show and I hope that the producers and network does not cave under PC pressure.

    Now get Roseanne back with Roseanne,

    I can live with the new people. Actors change in most shows from time to time. I love this show and am so glad it’s back on. It was also my husbands favorite. He passed away but I know he would have been happy.

    Thank you to Fox for picking up this show. I was so disappointed when it was cancelled. Wish we had more comedies on TV that were actually funny and made us laugh. I wish they would have picked up Roseanne before the other cast agreed to a show without her. I don’t see how, what we know as The Roseanne Show can survive without her…it just won’t be the same.That would be at least 2 shows that we could count on to make us laugh. I have a feeling that Murphy Brown will be just another Trump bashing show that no one thinks is actually funny! Some will like the insults hurled at Trump, but no matter how they try, most people are just tired of hearing it!Anyway, can’t wait for Last Man Standing to be back!!

    I am eagerly looking forward to Last Man Standing’s return. I watch the reruns on CMT and Hallmark even though I’ve seen them before, I still find them very amusing. I will miss Molly Ephram and her lively presence. Hope they can find someone of equal talent I didn’t see the name of the actor who plays Ed on the list of returns. He is another integral part of the show so I hope we’ll be seeing again. WIshing the cast and all the best and “break a leg”.
