Molly Ephraim Isn't Returning for 'Last Man Standing' Revival & Fans Have Some Thoughts About It

Yep, you read that right. Molly Ephraim will NOT be returning to Last Man Standing.

The show was cancelled by ABC after six seasons, but later picked up by Fox.

It was just announced this week that two of the stars, Molly and her young co-star Flynn Morrison will not return to the seventh season and their roles are currently in the process of being recast.

This news has fans upset and some are saying they won’t be tuning in anymore.

“I will not watch without the original Mandy and Boyd.😟,” one fan wrote.

Another fan added, “@MollyEphraim omg I just heard you aren’t returning to @LastManStanding No one can replace your portrayal of Mandy. So sad 😭 I hope u change your mind! You are 50% if the show! Just so funny!”

“Sad to hear @MollyEphraim isn’t going to be in the @LastManStanding revival. Mandy became my favorite character over the first run,” wrote a third fan.

Tell JJJ: What do you think of the casting mixup? Who do you think should take on Molly’s role?

    But why isn’t she coming back?

    • batman/superman fan

      Cause life goes on, the show was canceled so she moved on, how was she supposed to know that it would be brought back over a year later.

    • White Trailer Trash

      she did a movie and acts in other shows.. my guess where she is is a sure thing and dont know how long LMS will last after relaunch…..

  • Hill411

    Easy to understand why she is not coming back. She is too old to continue to play the young character on the show. She has defined the character and will be difficult to recast but it can and will be done. IF she does come back, $$$$ will be the motivation…she will then be fighting the real life physical aging process. She was outstanding in the role but time takes its toll.

  • Jason Newstedt

    No Molly, not watching.

    • kmbfa1

      Sounds like you need to purchase the Pie Rack episode and just put it on a continuous loop

  • Catskill

    The cast is what makes this show. Not one person! Families grow and change. Mandy could become a famous designer living in France. I’m fine with LMS as long as Tim Allen is there! Tim’s the man…Not Mandy!

  • brentsmith

    I’ve been a fan of Tim Allen since Home Improvement, but Last Man Standing is an ensemble show. It’s either the original cast, including Flynn and Molly even on a recurring basis, or it’s not worth reviving. I’m out.

      • brentsmith

        Sorry Guano that you were’nt hugged as a child, or perhaps you still are one.

        • Logger Man

          Suck it, punk.

          • brentsmith

            Sorry Paul Bunyan, no need to get your plaid shirt in an uproar. BTW you kiss you mother with that mouth?

          • Logger Man

            Eat me, Commie.

          • brentsmith

            Commie? You realize that it’s 2018, right?

          • Logger Man

            Funny, bet you have no problem with Russian conspiracy stuff.

          • brentsmith

            Why would I have a problem with something that’s been going on for years?

          • Logger Man

            Yeah, and the moon landing was fake too.

          • brentsmith

            Just like the documentary Capricorn One.

          • White Trailer Trash

            so you wont watch it because of a self absorbed acting person you like isnt on the show.. how funny… maybe you are the same way, ever give that a thought?

          • brentsmith

            I was brought up to respect other peoples opinions, but since your parents didn’t do you the same favor, I’m sorry you are offended by the fact that I won’t watch a show in which the Fox network had a chance to keep going with the original cast under contract, but refused to do so until they thought they could make a few bucks because the Roseanne reboot went so well. While Molly Ephraim play a self-absorbed character on the show, I sincerely doubt that she actually like that in real life, and obviously wants to move her career along. That is unfortunate, because she, like everybody else in the cast is an important piece of the whole show, and will not be easily replaced. That’s why I’m out.

          • White Trailer Trash

            Im suppose to respect others opinions and yet reading some of your post you dont either..
            that makes you a HYPOCRITE…
            as for the ORIGINAL CAST you should have stopped watching it after the first Season when Alexandra Krosney was replaced by Amanda Fuller ….
            Also as the ORIGINAL CAST, Jordan Masterson replaced Nick Jonas after season one……..
            I was taught to respect others not their opinions, opinions are like Aholes everyone has one..
            also I never mention Molly Ephraim is self-absorbed in real life, I SAID ACTING…
            But I agree with show not being the same but i will give it a shot..

          • Logger Man

            No, but I kissed yours.

          • brentsmith

            So you kissed a box of cremains? Good for you !

          • Logger Man

            Yawn.

          • brentsmith

            Once again making an ash out of yourself Paul.

    • kmbfa1

      I’m more concerned about a senior citizen obsessed with a little boy and a young girl who was in her early 20′s when he first spotted her. I watched the show tonight and it wasn’t half bad. If you truly had that attitude towards the ensemble you would have stopped watching after they changed 3 actors after the first season.

  • Jordan

    No Mandy a recast of boyd, and Eve won’t really be there either. This will be a very boring reboot.

    • Bwana

      You’d be happier with a dildo, but the great majority will watch the show.

  • Anonymous711

    She will be missed but her character isn’t why I watch the show. I like Tim, Kyle, & Hector E. Also like when Leno is on. The kid is replaceable, most of them are on sitcoms.

  • Barry Pickett

    It will be fine. We’ll miss Molly, but give it time.
    Remember Alexandra Krosney? First season Kristin. I really liked her, but I got used to Amanda and am quite happy with her, too.

  • Bill

    I was mad when Kate was killed off on NCIS, but after a bit I really liked Ziva, as much or more so. Molly will be missed, but life goes on. Good luck to her.

  • Gary Grinstead

    they have to come back. they are funny and the show won’t be the same.

  • Gary Grinstead

    all or nothing I say

  • Sal Monella

    She is beautiful and in two shows right now. She probably wants to branch out. She has the looks and the acting ability.

    • shadow_041

      What two shows is she in? Genuinely curious.

  • Carmen Pena

    I am so disappointed Molly Ephraim won’t be returning. She is so beautiful; she added a lightness and sweetness to the show. Still I am so glad Fox picked up this show. It was almost like therapy for me; seeing this nice family on TV every week got me through many a dark day.

  • Norborne Spottswood

    Boyd no big deal, I’ll miss Molly E. as Mandy but it is not like Charlie leaving 2 and a half men. For me that killed the show. As long as Tim Allen is there, I’m giving the reboot a chance.
