FX Orders Y: The Last Man to Series

Y: The Last Man

It’s been a bit since we heard any news concerning the television adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan‘s Y: The Last Man. Today, The Hollywood Reporter has reported that the series has been ordered and will come to screens in 2020.

After years of on and off, it looks like the beloved comic series is finally on. FX has announced it picked up the tv adaptation and handed out an order for it. Michael Green and Aïda Mashaka Croal are showrunners and executive producers for the series and it stars Barry Keoghan and Diane Lane. The cast also includes Amber Tamblyn, Imogen Poots, Lashana Lynch, Juliana Canfield, and Marin Ireland.

Originally published by DC ComicsVertigo imprint the series was created by Vaughan and artist Pia Guerra running for 60 issues. The story revolves around Yorick Brown (Keoghan) who is the last surviving human with a Y chromosome, along with his Capuchin monkey, Ampersand.

Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, and Vaughan executive produce and developed the series. Melina Matsoukas directed the pilot.

It’s been a long path for the comic to make it to screen. FX began development in 2015 after New Line scrapped plans to make it a feature film. New Line acquired the rights in 2007. New Line wanted to create one two-hour stand-alone film whole others wanted a three-film franchise. Others set to develop it in March 2012 and that fell apart with the rights beginning to revert back to Vaughan in September 2014. In 2017 Vaughan said he was looking for a partner who loved the source material but not afraid to change it. The story has evolved some becoming more relevant today focusing on toxic masculinity and in the age of #MeToo and the Trump Presidency.

Y: The Last Man May Finally Be Coming to Television

After starting and stopping and starting and stopping, the modern classic comic series Y: The Last Man is a step closer to coming to the screen.

FX has ordered a pilot for an adaptation of the comic series title Y. It’ll be from writer/producer Michael Green who has worked on American Gods, Logan, and Bladerunner 2049. The series will be co-run between Green and Melina Matsoukas. Matsoukas will direct the pilot. Comic series writer, and co-creator, Brian K. Vaughan will executive produce. The comic series debuted in 2002 and ran until 2008 with 60 issues.

The comic featured Yorick Brown and his pet monkey Amerisand who are the only male mammals to survive a global plague. They travel the world attempting to find Yorick

FX’s press releases describes the series:

All of the men are dead. But one. Based on the DC comic book series by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, Y traverses a world of women — exploring gender, race, class and survival.

The series was published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint and was created by Vaughan and artist Pia Guerra. The two control the rights to it. New Line Cinema was attached for a film in 2007. When that didn’t materialize the rights returned to Vaughan and Guerra. FX picked up the rights in 2015 and had announced Michael Green would showrun a television adaptation in 2016.

A pilot is a positive step but also doesn’t guarantee we’ll see a series. Still, it’s closer than we’ve been.

Due to creative differences, FX, Donald Glover, Stephen Glover and Marvel Television have agreed to part ways on Marvel’s Deadpool animated series,” they said in their statement. “FX will no longer be involved with the project.
