Y: The Last Man

After years in development hell, Y: The Last Man could finally be adapted…for the small screen. The rights reverted back to creators Brian K. Vaughn and Pia Guerra last year. The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that FX is currently working on a series based on the comic. Vaughn is actively involved in the development and will work with another writer that hasn’t been hired yet. FX is also looking for a director for the series. The comic series ran for 60 issues between 2002 and 2008.

Here’s a synopsis: Y: The Last Man tells the story of Yorick Brown, a young man who, along with his Capuchin monkey, Ampersand, somehow survives a catastrophic event that kills off every living creature with a Y chromosome. Left in a world of only women, Yorick teams with a government operative, 355, to try and uncover the truth about the plague and why he and he alone made it through alive.

Vaughn’s worked in TV before, as he was a writer on Lost and the showrunner for Under the Dome. He’s currently writing the comics Saga, We Stand On Guard and Paper Girls. Y: the Last Man has been notoriously difficult to adapt, as it was in the works as a feature film since 2007. DJ Caruso was attached at that time, then he droped out and was replaced by Dan Trachtenberg.
