Creator Brian K. Vaughan Offers Update On Y: The Last Man Series

Comic book creator Brian K. Vaughan took to Instagram to share a short update on the FX adaptation of Y: The Last Man, assuring fans that despite the recent changes in the show’s management, Y is still on track for its scheduled debut in 2020.

“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.”

Based on Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra’s graphic novels of the same name, Y will be set in a post-apocalyptic world wherein a cataclysmic event has killed every male mammal save for one lone human. It will traverse a world of women — exploring gender, race, class, and survival.

Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk) will star in the series as Yorick Brown, an escape artist who becomes the only surviving man after a catastrophic plague wipes out the rest of the human males. Yorick and his Capuchin monkey, Ampersand, find themselves in a greatly changed world that is now dominated by women.

Oscar nominee Diane Lane (Unfaithful) co-stars in the series as Yorick’s mother Senator Jennifer Brown, Imogen Poots (28 Weeks Later) as Yorick’s sister Hero Brown, Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel) as Agent 355, Amber Tamblyn (The Sisterhood of Traveling Pants) as Mariette Callows, the daughter of the president of the United States, Juliana Canfield (Succession) as Yorick’s love interest Beth, and Marin Ireland as Nora.
