Don’t stick a fork in this series just yet. Despite a flurry of news sites reporting the plug being pulled in the highly anticipated series, The Hollywood Reporter is saying otherwise.
The site says that FX is still moving forward with its series adaptation of beloved comic book series “Y: The Last Man” — just not with the original showrunners.
Aida Croal and Michael Green took to Twitter to announce their departure from the series as the showrunners.
Adds the site: “THR has confirmed that the series is still moving forward at the network, with the same cast in place, but the hunt is now on to replace the duo who had shepherded the development and piloting of the project now just being dubbed Y. Sources say that the exit came after creative differences with the network over the course of the show.”
The cast includes Diane Lane (Unfaithful, Under the Tuscan Sun), Amber Tamblyn (“Two and a Half Men”), Barry Keoghan (The Killing of a Sacred Deer, Dunkirk), Imogen Poots (Green Room, Frank & Lola), Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel, Bulletproof), Juliana Canfield (Succession) and Marin Ireland (Sneaky Pete, Hell or High Water).
Y: The Last Man is a post-apocalypticscience fiction comic book series by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra published by Vertigofrom 2002 through 2008. The series centers on Yorick Brown and his pet Capuchin monkey Ampersand, the only males who survived the apparent global androcide. The series was published in sixty issues by Vertigo and collected in a series of ten paperback volumes (and later a series of five hardcover “Deluxe” volumes). The series’ covers were primarily by J. G. Jones and Massimo Carnevale. The series received three Eisner Awards.
