FX has been developing a series adaptation of the “Y: The Last Man” comics for a while now, and the series is finally headed to the “FX on Hulu” portal later this year.
We’ve learned today that “Y” will premiere on Monday, September 13, exclusively on FX on Hulu. The season features ten episodes in total, and the first *two* premiere on 9/13.
Based on the DC Comics series by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, and published by Vertigo between 2002 and 2008, “Y: The Last Man traverses a post-apocalyptic world in which a cataclysmic event has decimated every male mammal save for one lone human. The new world order of women will explore gender, race, class and survival.”
Eliza Clark (Animal Kingdom) serves as the showrunner of the series, which has a cast including Olivia Thirlby, Diane Lane, Ben Schnetzer, Amber Tamblyn and Ashley Romans.
FX notes, “All episodes of the season will be directed by women and the production has a significant number of female department heads, including both DPs, the production designer, costume designer, casting director, editors, stunt coordinator and more.”
