During FX’s Television Critics Association session, FX CEO John Landgraf explained why he preferred the title to simply be Y (including plans to play with it graphically), Aftewards, he spoke to /Film about the show’s updated post-apocalyptic setting, the monkey Ampersand and the presence of another man in the cast who isn’t Yorick, the last man.

Y the Last Man TV show cast

The Y the Last Man TV show cast has a new addition, and there’s a pretty good chance he won’t stick around very long. Timothy Hutton has joined the series, inspired by the comic from Brian K. Vaughan and Pia GuerraY is set in a world where all living mammals with a Y chromosome have died, with the exception of an escape artist named Yorrick and his Capuchin monkey, Ampersand. Since Hutton is playing neither Yorrick nor his monkey, don’t expect him to make it into the second season.

Y The Last Man cast

Earlier this year, the seemingly impossible happened: FX actually ordered a pilot for a TV adaptation of writer Brian K. Vaughn and artist Pia Guerra‘s beloved comic book Y: The Last Man. The project had been kicking around Hollywood for over a decade, flirting with a movie version several times before eventually finding a suitor on television at FX.

Now the Y The Last Man cast has been announced, and American Animals star Barry Keoghan has been tapped to play the male lead. In addition, Diane Lane (Justice League) has joined the cast in a key role as a Senator, and we also know who will play Agent 355, the lead’s sister Hero, and more. Read on to learn about the rest of the cast. Read More »

Michael Green was one of the quiet heroes of 2017, with writing credits on Logan, Murder on the Orient Express, Alien: Covenant, and Blade Runner 2049. Beyond that, he was also an executive producer and showrunner for the audacious first season of Starz’s American Gods. What a year. What a collection of work!

Unfortunately, Green and fellow showrunner Bryan Fuller departed American Gods over behind-the-scenes disputes, but Starz’s loss could be FX’s gain. It seems that this could be the window for Green’s long-gestating small screen adaptation of the science fiction comic Y: The Last Man to get made.

Y The Last Man TV Show

An adaptation of Brian K. Vaughn and Pia Guerra‘s sixty-issue comic book series Y: The Last Man has been in the works for years –  first as a movie and then, thankfully, as a TV show, which is a much better fit for the sprawling tale.

But the show has been in the works at FX for a long time now, so what’s up with the delay? According to writer/showrunner Michael Green, you can blame the 2016 presidential election for the long wait.

A television adaptation of Y: The Last Man is still on its way.

y the last man tv series

If you asked me to assemble a list of my favorite comic series of all time, books that I would recommend to anyone, even people who weren’t comic book fans, writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Pia Guerra‘s Y: The Last Man would probably land somewhere near the top of the list. It’s a stirring adventure story, a brutally honest coming-of-age tale, and one of the most politically charged and thoughtful post-apocalyptic narratives ever told. And don’t get me started on that perfect final issue. Seriously. I’ll start blubbering like a baby.

So I greeted the news that FX was looking to develop the comic into a television series with the mix of excitement and skepticism that I greet any upcoming adaptation of something I love. And while it’s still early days yet, we do have an update on the show.
