Y: The Last Man is an in-development TV series on FX, officially announced in October 2015, with Michael Green as the announced show-runner. It announced its pilot in April 2018, and the cast was announced in July 2018. Almost 17 years after Pia Guerra and Brian K. Vaughan’s prestige comic book series was released, filming for the live-action television series began. Published by DC’s Vertigo, the ‘Y: The Last Man’ comic series explores a world where all mammals with a Y chromosome have suddenly died. Escape artist Yorick Brown and his pet monkey, Ampersand, are the last surviving members of the male species, and together must navigate a new civilization facing extinction.
