Fox announced Sudeikis’ guest gig Thursday morning at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Beverly Hills.
Though his episode date has not been announced, Sudeikis (“We’re the Millers,” “Horrible Bosses”) will reprise his role as the brother of Phil (the Emmy-nominated Forte). In the first season, the “Saturday Night Live” alum briefly appeared as Phil’s astronaut sibling who has been stuck in space after a virus decimated the Earth’s population, except for a handful of survivors.
In the Season 2 premiere, Phil, Carol (Kristen Schaal) and their legion of loyal sports balls strike out on their own after Phil was banned from Tucson by the rest of the group.
“The Last Man on Earth” returns Sept. 27.
