Y: The Last Man

If comic creator Brian K. Vaughan’s excitement is any indication, FX is going in the right direction with their Y: The Last Man series. Vaughn, who wrote the comic that the series is based on, posted to Instagram to reveal that everything is on track for its 2020 debut.

Vaughan wrote:

The show must go on! Sorry for two Hollywood sellout posts in one day, but I just got back from the writers’ room for Y (still coming to FX in 2020!), and I’m very pleased to say the series is in excellent hands with new showrunner Eliza Clark and her intimidating squad of all-stars. TV is g****mn hard, and if the last 17 years have taught co-creator Pia Guerra and me anything, it’s that our story is particularly challenging to adapt, so I’m very grateful to everyone who’s helped get Yorick & Co. this far, especially Michael Green and Aïda Croal. Anyway, stay tuned, very good (monkey) sh*t coming your way soon.

The series stars Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk) as Yorick Brown, the lead character in Vaughn and Pia Guerra’s graphic novels. Set in a post-apocalyptic world wherein a cataclysmic event has killed every male mammal save for one lone human, the series traverses a world of women — exploring gender, race, class, and survival.
