“Last Man Standing” has found its replacement Boyd and Mandy.

Jet Jurgensmeyer and Molly McCook have joined the Tim Allen sitcom ahead of its move to Fox, the network announced on Monday. They step into the roles vacated by Molly Ephraim and Flynn Morrison when the show was axed at ABC.

Both actors have extensive guest starring experience, though this will mark the first series regular roles for each. McCook’s guest credits include “Modern Family,” “Murder In the First,” “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and “Glee.” She is also set to recur on Freeform’s “The Fosters” spinoff “Good Trouble.”

Jurgensmeyer recently appeared on NBC’s “Will & Grace” revival and has guested on shows including “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “Hot in Cleveland,” “Marry Me,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Black-ish.”

Regulars returning for the Fox era of “Last Man Standing” include Allen, Travis (his on-screen wife Vanessa), Amanda Fuller (their eldest daughter Kristin), Jonathan Adams (as Chuck), Christoph Sanders (as Kyle), Jordan Masterson (as Ryan) and Elizondo (as Ed).

“Last Man Standing” will exist in its previous time slot when it returns in the fall on Fox — Fridays at 8 p.m.

McCook is repped by Jeff Witjas and Dan Baron at APA and Alan Iezman at Shelter Entertainment Group. Jurgensmeyer is repped by The Osbrink Agency, Stone Genow Smelkinson Binder & Christopher and Discover Management.
