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 Comics‘ Vertigo 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.
Season 2 of Legion on FX, the nominally X-Men based prestige TV show, gave us a lot to talk about from mental health to memes to retro aesthetics. Leonardo was such a great guest talking Legion Season 1 what with his background in mental health we’re thrilled to have him back!
